CAR TO FARM IS THE RESULT OF A GREAT IDEA AND GREAT PEOPLE MAKING IT HAPPEN.
Mauro - The Founder
Franca - The Mom
Franca is Mauro's idol and the person behind Mauro's upbringing, aka his mamma. It is easy to get intoxicated by her positive energy and do-what-you-love philosophy. She used to take Mauro on spontaneous vacations, without a reservation or a destination, stopping only where it felt good and where the food looked good.
Alaina - The Partner in Crime
Alaina is a dreamer, a romanticist, and a creator. She is currently enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to become a health coach and is the founder and blogger of Tavola for Two, a site dedicated to the art of dining. She aims to shift the focus towards spending time with friends and loved ones, while making healthy, natural meals in the comfort of one's home.
#BEEPBEEP - the car
