Chris Parachini & Brandon Hoy: Locavore Leaders

Chris Parachini, 38, and Brandon Hoy, 33, founded Roberta's not only as a Brooklyn restaurant but also as an incubator for other locavore projects. These include the biggest rooftop farm in New York City—a one-acre operation that supplies both home cooks and other restaurants—plus beehives, greenhouses, a radio station and an artisanal bakery.
