FROM OUR FARM TO YOUR FORK
Chief Farmer, Farm Fresh To You
Thaddeus Barsotti, along with his brothers Noah Barnes and Freeman Barsotti, have made it their mission to transform agriculture in America by connecting local farms and communities in a method that is environmentally and economically stable. They are continuing the food revolution that was started by their parents in 1976 with 20 acres of star thistle and a dream. They are dedicated to growing organic produce with great taste and connecting people with the land that grows their food.
Proprietor/Chef, Mulvaney's B&L
Patrick Mulvaney, a New York native whose career as a chef has spanned three continents and four time zones, launched his career with a European apprenticeship. He then went on to work East-to-West for restaurant establishments that included The River Café in Brooklyn, Roxanne’s in Phoenix, Paragary’s restaurants and The Kitchen in Sacramento.
Patrick’s original move to California brought him to the Napa Valley where he assisted Madeleine Kamman at the Beringer Winery’s Master Chef Program. He now makes his home in Sacramento, where he considers the abundance of the Sacramento, Yolo and Capay Valley his garden.
Patrick is owner-operator of both Culinary Specialists catering company established in 2001, and Mulvaney’s B&L established in March 2006. The B&L is located in the historic brick firehouse at 1215 19th Street, Sacramento.
