We visited Patrick DeYoung of Blue Moon Organics in Aptos, California in Spring 2008.
He became a farmer after taking some time off from the stock market to surf. Patrick grows strawberries for maximum flavor, uses bugs instead of pesticides, and treats the soil of their rented farmland to leave it better than before. By using these methods, he has soil that regenerates itself for better harvesting in future seasons. The FruitGuys has allowed him to sell fruit at the peak of the farm and their production. This allows customers to get the freshest fruit from Blue Moon Farms as possible!
