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.
