Bill White began in the restaurant business at age twelve cooking french fries at a drive-in restaurant in Northern Michigan. After graduating from Cornell University, Bill moved to Utah where he purchased the Alpine Prospector Hotel in Park City which he renovated and reopened in 1992 as Grappa. His restaurants in Park City also include Chimayo, Wahso, Windy Ridge Café and Bakery, Ghidotti’s, Sushi Blue and Billy Blancos.
More recently, Bill began restoring the 1938 Historic Hixson Farm, located on Highway 224, to create The Bill White Agriculture, Education and Sustainability Center (a 501(c)3), known locally as ‘The Farm’. The Farm is designed to support and preserve the agricultural history that once defined the Park City community by engaging in agricultural techniques aimed at sustainable food production and land conservation.
