Who We Are & What We Do

You might know us as a long time fixture serving pizza made with 100% organic Maine-sourced ingredients at the Common Ground Fair, or you may have tried our wood-fired menus at farmers markets, street fairs, weddings or parties all over Maine. Since 2011 Harvest Moon has been fully committed to sustainable, farm to table cuisine. We grow our own produce, raise our own pigs and chickens and source our ingredients from farmers we know as friends. We ourselves are farmers, outdoorsmen and activists who love Maine and her harvests. From Aroostook wheat to Pemaquid oysters, foraged mushrooms to the best local meats, our ingredients are at the center of what we do.

We are a full-service catering company able to provide all of the food and beverage elements that will make your special occasion unforgettable!

    Shane McGarvey - Executive Chef Shane is a native New Yorker with over 15 years experience in the food industry. While he specializes in wood-fired fare, he cites his time spent in California and Mexico as a big influence to his style and taste. Shane spent several years running his own startup in Brooklyn, NY where he cooked private parties and dinners, organized supper clubs, and was a driving force in his community's farm to table movement. In 2014 Shane traveled to Chile to study the art of the traditional asado chileno, where he worked with small local farms and vendors in the Southern Patagonian region. He now spends his time creating beautifully curated menus and cooking the most honest, locally focused food he can get his hands on.
