Meet Fallon! Our Farm Manager
I grew up in Connecticut in a small town called Terryville and ended up out west because of a nagging need to experience something new that I couldn’t ignore anymore (best choice I’ve made by the way). My life’s passion seems to generally revolve and evolve around understanding how and why things work (or don’t) so after learning more about the current food systems I felt the quickest, surest way I could deal with the issue was to start at the root (pun intended). Farming is a way to be directly involved with the “who, what, when, where, why and how” of this all important commodity. It conveniently also connects you with a large assortment of other people, the other important commodity. Outside of farming I love picking up new skills/learning new things whenever I can. I enjoy deconstructing my biases, experimental cooking, playing outside, and building things.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT MOON VALLEY:
My favorite thing about Moon Valley is that Aaron and Kim are involved in every part of their company’s wellbeing. They value the input of all the employees when discussing new products or ways to make things more efficient. They make sure we each understand our importance as a part of the whole team. They also do a lot of things in house that other companies might outsource. I love, love, love their self-reliant, educatedly adventurous attitude and commitment to self-growth. I feel that their company values and practices are a close reflection of their personal ones. Working here is about working with people rather than for them.
All of the honey!
I also have to admit I initially thought their soaps wouldn’t be able to handle the level of dirts (yes there are different types) I accumulate during the day, but they actually work significantly better than just about any other soaps I’ve tried. Plus they still leave my skin super soft!
