FROM OUR FARM TO YOUR FORK Thaddeus Barsotti 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. Lucila De Alejandro Farmer, Suzie's Farm Lucila hatched the idea for Suzie's Farm in 2004 while attending an organic farming seminar in the midwest. She returned to San Diego and told her husband Robin Taylor she wanted to start a CSA. He agreed and suggested she start planting! Suzie's Farm was established that year and the couple runs the farm. Jeff Rossman Executive Chef/Owner, Terra American Bistro The Rossmans, a family of small-scale local restaurateurs, opened Terra in 1998, with it soon becoming a vehicle for son Jeff Rossman's culinary experiments. Chef Rossman is devoted to improving the lives of others. Be it through an exquisitely prepared meal, tireless volunteer work, or simply a welcoming smile, he seeks to create a San Diego community united by a shared love of food and mutual respect.
