California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF)
Capay Organic is a second-generation family farm founded in 1976 by Kathleen Barsotti and Martin Barnes. After graduating from UC Davis, Kathy borrowed money to purchase 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 the Capay Valley. In 1992, Kathy Barsotti also started one of the first community-supported agriculture (CSA) programs in California: Farm Fresh To You. Since Kathy's passing, the Barsotti sons and the Barneses have carried on the business. They feel a great responsibility to take care of their land and pass it on to future generations.
