Farmer Thaddeus Barsotti at the Sacramento Children’s Museum


OK, listen up, it’s only March. There’s still time to get on that resolution you made to make healthy eating a priority for you and your family. The kids aren’t interested in fruits and vegetables? Well, maybe listening to a real-life farmer talk about growing up on a farm and working as a farmer will pique their interest.
On Saturday, March 3, farmer Thaddeus Barsotti of Farm Fresh to You, an organic farm and Community Service Agriculture home delivery service, will be at the Sacramento Children’s Museum in Rancho Cordova. He’ll have in tow fruits and veggies—broccoli, lettuce, spinach, endive, leeks, baby bok choy, oranges and apples—for the kids to feel and smell. He’ll explain how food grows and how eating seasonal produce is sometimes different from what’s found at the grocery store. Farmer Thaddeus’ “Happy Heart, Healthy Eating” talks are at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. The museum is located at 2701 Prospect Park in Rancho Cordova. Museum admission is $7 per person with discounts for seniors 60+ and members of the military.
