Cynthia Beretta

Founder, Beretta Kitchen / Co-Founder, Beretta Farms

Cynthia Beretta, Co-Founder of Beretta Farms and founder of Beretta Kitchen, is no stranger to food.

A gifted entrepreneur, mother of three, organic cattle rancher and self-proclaimed ‘foodie’, Cynthia has over twenty-five years of experience in the food industry.  Born on the original Earth Day in the 1970s, Cynthia jokes she was destined for sustainable and organic greatness.

In 1993, fresh out of school with no farming experience to speak of Cynthia and her husband Michael embarked on an unconventional path and founded Beretta Farms. Since then the couple has expanded their network of like-minded farmers across the country, partnering with those that share the core value of raising animals humanely with love and respect.

As both businesses continue to grow and thrive, Cynthia never forgets to carve time out of her busy schedule to share a hearty home cooked meal with her family.
