Adopted as a baby from Korea and raised in Long Island, New York, Kristyn Leach grew up on pizza and bagels. But as a young adult, she became fascinated with her birth country’s cuisine—eventually traveling back for the first time since her adoption.

She now practices “natural farming” techniques in Winters, California, and provides produce to Bay Area restaurant Namu Gaji.
