Lorien Carsey is the farm manager and winter farmer at Blue Moon Farm in Urbana, IL. Signs of spring were just beginning to show when we interviewed Lorien in late March 2015. Lorien gave us a tour of the farm’s ten high tunnels and explained their extensive production system, which grows a variety of crops for local retail and wholesale markets throughout the year. Bed preparation for their high tunnel tomatoes was well underway, which they can have producing by June thanks to a unique mobile heating solution. She also explained their process for moving their mobile high tunnels, how she chooses crops for their different styles of tunnels, and why season extension is so important to their labor force and to their business as a whole.
