Where did our name come from?
“What a gift! Look who we got to see last night on an evening walk….a Luna Moth that had just emerged! His wings were still wet & his abdomen still thick. This morning we woke up thinking of him & the journey he must have made in the middle of the night, to find a mate. Adult Luna Moths never eat, so those fragile, yet fierce, thin wings exists so the mates can get to one another. After staying locked together for hours in the wee, dark hours of the morning, the female lays her eggs near food the caterpillars like to eat, one of which happens to be Black Walnut leaves-lucky for us.
This creature is one that pulls us in closer, reminds us, & quiets us with their beauty, mystery, simplicity, & drive…..so if you ever wondered where our farms’ name came from, find a moment like this- in quiet wonder, awe, & appreciation for all the living things that encircle with us- and you will know.“ -Amanda Jo
