Dominic Palumbo has run the organic Moon in the Pond Farm, in Sheffield, Massachusetts, since 1991. Prior to farming, Dominic (Dom to friends) was a landscape designer of penthouse terraces and townhouse gardens in New York City. He found that landscape design left him plenty of time for farming, so he was an early entrant at the Union Square Farmer’s Market, when organic produce was still a novelty. A member of Slow Food West Mass and a featured speaker at Terra Madra in Italy, Dom loves to talk about heritage breeds, heirloom vegetables and the amazing flavor that comes from caring for the land. For a small farm the diversity of produce and activities Dom manages is amazing. But his proudest achievement is the work he does with farm apprentices, a number who have gone on to run their own farms. The farm itself is captivating—well worth a trip. 816 Barnum Street, Sheffield, MA 413-229-3092
