The Bella Sun Luci Story

Built on a foundation of family values, quality, and integrity, three generations of our family work at Mooney Farms. We have a history of using premium ingredients to create a line of healthy Mediterranean inspired products for today’s consumer. At Mooney Farms we believe that simple, fresh ingredients are all that you need for an extraordinary meal.

Our family story began in Sonoma, California, surrounded by the natural beauty of Sonoma’s Vineyard landscapes and wineries which line the valley. In 1982 we moved to the small farming community of Gridley, California located in the Feather River Valley known for its rich river bottom soil and long summer growing season. Just north in Chico you can find our beautiful rustic Italian style storefront which welcomes you to our family business.

“Il gusto della vita” means to “savor life the Italian way” and at Mooney Farms we enjoy life by experiencing good food and spending time around the table with our family and friends.

We have stayed true to our original family recipe handed down over many generations. Honoring this tradition every item we produce is crafted using the bounty of fresh ingredients found in Northern California.

The authentic flavors of the Mediterranean inspire everything we create.
