In 1976, two UC Davis graduate students bought 20 acres of land in the highly arable Capay Valley. One of the students, Kathleen Barsotti, was working toward her master's degree in ecology and was determined to grow vegetables and fruits in an eco-friendly way: organically. The organic-food movement hadn't yet entered the public consciousness, and Kathleen worked overtime to convince restaurants, stores, and consumers of the taste-able merits of her process. Over time, given the possible health and environmental benefits of certified organic food, she succeeded. The farm sprouted to 300 acres to accommodate the increased demand. Today, a second generation runs the farm as well as a shop inside San Francisco's Ferry Building. Dubbed Farm Fresh To You, the store furnishes customers' bags or portable cornucopia horns with all sorts of soil-sprouted goods, including heirloom tomatoes, sweet peas, and fresh asparagus. The farm also teams up with fellow Yolo County and Pacific Northwest farms to deliver boxes of seasonal produce to area homes.
One of the oldest businesses in the community, Redwood City Nursery's expert staff digs through an assortment of flowers, trees, fertilizers, grasses, and gardening supplies. Most of its full-time employees have more than 20 years of nursery experience, lending thoughtful guidance on how to quickly spruce up a garden with colorful annuals or the most tactful way to let prickly pine branches know that they’re shedding. Pick up a six-pack of annuals ($3.05) to fill flower beds that have been empty since the youngest Cabbage Patch Kid left for college, or spice up dinners with a healthy selection of herbs and vegetables. Cantankerous cacti can be placed in a customer-selected container by request, and birdhouses and bird feeders attract welcome feathered friends, as opposed to unwelcome feathered friends like Darrell.
