Meet Your Farmers

Common Harvest Farms CSA is made up of four local farms: Moon on the Meadow is owned and operated by Jill Elmers.  The farm, which is located just on the edge of the east city limits of Lawrence, Kansas, in the Kansas River bottoms, is certified organic and is dedicated to sustainable agriculture. In April of 2010, Moon on the Meadow joined with Buller Family Farm  to buy another farm just down the road (Common Harvest Farms). This partnership added 34 additional acres to the mix which includes perennial asparagus and rhubarb, a young orchard, and heirloom wheat for fresh ground flour. Buller Family Farm is owned and operated by Jenny and Tom Buller and their sons, Peter and Ben.  The Red Tractor Farm is located on the south east side of Clinton Lake off of Highway 458 and is a fourth generation farm operated by Jen Humphrey and Jessica Pierson. They grow a wide variety of certified organic vegetables. They also raise Boer meat goats and laying hens, which provide eggs for the CSA. The hens are fed non-GMO, certified organic grain.
