The maker behind Farm Chocolate is Patty Doyle, a Sonoma County-based chef. Inspired by new flavors and artful design, she strives to create authentic and delectable confections, which are both playful and unconventional.
“Since making my first batch of chocolate in 2003, it was clear that I had stumbled upon something intriguing. I base my confections on the bounty of the garden, as I delight in working with organic and local fruits, herbs and flowers. I have a life-long devotion to the kitchen, and a wish to create something memorable. Forging relationships with growers, cocoa farmers and other artisans in order to care for our Sonoma County guests excites me.”
