  nFOCUS    Step Inside: The Cafe at Thistle Farms  Thistle Farms, a nonprofit that offers hope and healing to survivors of sex trafficking and addiction, is all about new beginnings. So it is only fitting that its cafe should also have a second chapter.  The previous incarnation of the newly named The Café at Thistle Farms was “early attic,” says CEO Hal Cato. Everything was donated, from the uneven boards that made up the wood flooring to the tables and chairs. “We had a little camper sink, no dishwasher and a bunch of appliances plugged into the wall,” says Hal.
