WHAT WE DO

Copper Moose Farm was established in 2007 with the aim to provide the highest quality produce to the Park City community. We make mindful and sustainable choices from seed to harvest, and all of the growing that takes place in between. We are passionate growers and we take great care to treat our crops well, both above and below ground, every step of the way.

OUR VISION

At our core, we believe in sustainability and ethical farming. By choosing to eat locally-grown produce from Copper Moose Farm, you are consuming fresh vegetables that are harvested in season, supporting local farmers, and encouraging the sustainable and humane techniques practiced to grow your food.

ABOUT THE FARM

Copper Moose Farm is a high-altitude farm located at 7000 feet elevation, operating on 3 acres of growable land between outdoor fields and greenhouses.

Our main growing season is from Spring to Fall (typically early May to late October). With the help of our greenhouses, we are able to continue growing indoors during the snowy winter months to keep locally grown produce on your table year-round!

ABOUT THE FARM Stand

Visit our on-site farm stand from spring through fall to purchase freshly harvested produce, flower arrangements, and an array of artisan goods from our local community partners. 

The farm stand is a market with local charm, and makes for a wonderful place to gather and stop by along your bike ride or walk. Come on in and check out our harvest!

FARM STAND HOURS

 The Farm Stand is open June – October:

Tuesday and Thursday 12 – 6 pm
and Saturday 9 am – 12 pm 

In the winter (November – May) our farm stand is closed, but we offer an online store based on availability of production and growth.

OUR PRACTICES

MEET YOUR FARMERS

Growing food would not be possible without the dedicated and hard-working team of farmers who put their hearts into cultivating the land, volunteers and staff alike. The team doesn’t just keep the farm running, but truly makes it thrive. We are pleased to have the opportunity to grow for you.

Margaret

Farm Manager

Margaret

Margaret Storm steps into her first summer as Farm Manager armed with the strength, determination, knowledge, know-how, and can-do attitude to get it all done and then some. Margaret makes hard work look easy and has put her all in at Copper Moose Farm for 6 years.

Originally from Northern Lower Michigan, not to be confused with Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Utah has been home since 2010. In addition to managing CMF, she is also obtaining her degree in Agricultural Science at Utah State University to further her journey in agriculture.

You can find Margaret and her two energetic dogs, Dexter and Rose in the flowers, singing a witty impromptu show-tune, and transplanting twice as many starts as everyone else in the same amount of time.

Michael

Entering his 13th year in agriculture and 3rd year at Copper Moose Farm, Michael Foster is the new Assistant Farm Manager and resident farmer on property. Michael brings enthusiasm, positive energy, cats, and punk rock to the farm.

Michael has extensive agriculture experience, deep passion for earth systems and food systems, and a smile that is visible through the tractor window from across the field. With Michael on the farm, there is no doubt we will have the best veg in town and we’ll be laughing while growing it.

About

ANNIKA

Field Crew

ANNIKA

Annika Vorsteveld, hailing from the quaint town of Panton, Vermont, was raised amidst the idyllic landscape of her family’s expansive dairy farm. From the tender age of childhood, she was ingrained with the values of hard work and dedication, learning the intricate rhythms of farm life alongside her family.

However, the proposal of new adventures and opportunities led Annika to relocate to Salt Lake City, Utah, with her partner, Reilly. The allure of cultivating fresh produce and embracing environmentally conscious practices drew Annika towards this new venture. With her innate connection to the land and a deep-rooted passion for agriculture, she embarked on a journey to explore the complexities of vegetable farming.

In the shadow of the Wasatch Range, Annika’s love for the outdoors finds endless avenues. Accompanied by her faithful border collie, Sidney, she embraces the rugged beauty of Utah through camping trips, exploring trails, and finding solace in the tranquility of hot yoga sessions.
