The Team

It is the people who work the land that make the heart of our business and the backbone our of success.  We are blessed to have a hardworking and committed crew.  It takes not only a mountain of energy and intelligent care to do what they do, but a love for the work and a fundamental understanding of the importance of feeding people.

Jesse Pizzitola, Farmer

The owner of First Light Farm.  He is in the midst of realizing a dream as First Light Farm blossoms and becomes a stable livelihood for him.  He grew up in Sonoma County and contracted an interest farming in college which quickly took over his rational thinking capacities and put him on a course that he secretly hopes Wendell Berry would be proud of.

Patrick Krier, Farmer

Patrick is a grower. He has been with First Light since fall of 2015 and he is an integral member of our crew. Patrick has some great experience working at some other great farms in the area and he brings immense passion and discipline to his work here on the farm. He hopes to have his own farm one day and I have no doubt that he will make it happen.

ShonRay Nichols, Farmer

ShonRay is a dedicated and joyful worker. He’s got speedy hands and an easy laugh.  He has worked on several farms previously and is in his second season working at First Light Farm.  He does a bit of everything, and is currently taking care of CSA box packing and inventory as well as everything else that needs doing.

Forest Firestone, Delivery Driver 

Forest is a long time supporter of the First Light Farm and has been on the team for several years in many capacities from CSA member to box packer to delivery driver.  She has even allowed her son Nico to become our literal Poster Child (he’s the one grabbing at the pile of carrots)  I guess the carrot thing runs in the family.
