Meet Farmer Jon
Jon Brzycki began his professional career in culinary arts, studying the fundamentals of French classical cuisine at a Hilton Hotel in Scottsdale, AZ as an apprentice with the American Culinary Federation. Upon graduation, he moved to Orange County, CA and for the next eight years, while working in fine dining restaurants and resort hotels, he learned from skilled chefs who taught him the art of contemporary Californian cuisine. Feeling the need to find his own identity in cooking and a more desirable environment to flourish in, Jon made his way north and found Napa Valley to be the ideal place for him to live and work.
