350 acres in Capay, about 90 miles to San Francisco


Capay Organic is a second-generation family farm founded in 1976 by Kathleen Barsotti and Martin Barnes. After graduating from UC Davis, Kathy purchased her first 20 acres. The Barsotti family has always believed in growing produce organically. The farm was the second organic farm in Yolo County and the first organic farm in Capay Valley. In 1992, Kathy Barsotti also started one of the first community supported agriculture programs in California, Farm Fresh To You. Thaddeus, Freeman, and Noah feel a great responsibility to care for the whole food system—the land, the family of employees, and the customers.
