Farm Fresh To You History and Overview

A Promising Beginning

Armed with a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture and a minor in statistics, Kathleen Barsotti founded Farm Fresh To You with her husband, Martin. Martin was also well educated with a degree in psychology and a Master’s degree in community development. Both Martin and Kathleen have impressive backgrounds that prepared them to eventually start their company, Farm Fresh To You.

In 1976, the Martins bought some property in Capay Valley. It was about 20 acres worth of land, funded with borrowed money from their parents. They ran the farm for years before the start of Farm Fresh To You. As the years went on, so did life. The Martins ended up divorcing which left the farm in Kathy’s care. She ended up beginning Farm Fresh To You with the help of her four sons. Kathy developed breast cancer and ended her battle in July of 2000. Since then, her four sons have joined together to continue the thriving business.

Sustainable Agriculture

Sustainable Agriculture

Sustainable agriculture is the ability of a farmer to produce food in such a way that the environment and surrounding ecosystem, is unaffected by their agricultural activities. There are a couple of issues that are connected with this form of agricultural activity which are the biophysical issue and social-economic issue. Biophysical is related to the biological activities such as crop rotation, usage of fertilizers and artificial nutrients and the availability of the other resources such as water, wind and sunlight whereas social-economic is concerned with the employment of farmers, the cost of production and total yield.

Talking about the physical attributes of sustainability, it is not properly understood. Most farming practices show that the end result of these practices has resulted in soil erosion, salination and water-logging. Most forests and tropical areas have lost their fertility due to over-cultivation and conventional farming techniques.
