My name is Dayna Green Burgeson, and I am a Registered Dietitian. I work for a University of California hospital, where I provide counseling to people trying to improve their health by changing the way they eat. Before I was a dietitian, I was trained as a cook and pastry chef when I worked at several restaurants in the Sonoma and Napa valleys.
I am also a farmer. Along with my husband, Adrian, I run a small Satsuma Mandarin farm called Burgeson Family Farm. We have a farm website www.burgesonfamilyfarm.com if you care to hear more about it. Our farm is in the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills, in California, and we have one of the best climates you can imagine for growing all kinds of fruits and vegetables. We have tried to grow just about everything on our property, and currently have over 50 different types of fruits and vegetables growing at any time.
This is a picture of me with my husband Adrian, and my son Evan, in front of one of our mandarin trees.
I have been a dietitian and cook for over 30 years, and a farmer for over 20 years, and during that time I have grown much of my own food. I have learned a lot about how to grow and prepare a variety of healthy foods, and this website is my attempt to share some of that knowledge.
I am also available to lecture to groups on the health benefits of and ways to implement a healthy California Mediterranean Diet. Please send me a message at this link if you would like more information on the type of talks I can give to your group and my fees for this service.
