US (NJ): Farmer growing flowers a little greener thanks to grant to convert to geothermal heat

A Brooklyn couple with no agricultural experience outside a few chickens and peas in the garden thought it would be fun to live on a farm.

In 2019 they moved to East Windsor with their young daughter Rose and started Moonshot Farm on 9.5 acres. Now, the flower farm is blooming.

“We’re growing 40,000 tulips and then thousands of ranunculus, anemones, freesia, and other ultra specialty flowers,” said Rebecca Kutzer-Rice, who co-owns the farm with husband Mark Ginsberg.

“I always joke my life has been in financial services for security with Russian hackers, but that flower farming is way more difficult and complicated, and a lot harder to learn,” said Kutzer-Rice. Ginsberg is a carpenter by trade, and Kutzer-Rice worked in cyber security, but she quit her job on January 1, and now both are full-time farmers.
