DAY THIRTEEN

A walk in nature

A stroll with Claire Ramey, pondering our relationships with the land, nature, and legacy.

“Being born and raised in Sonoma County and watching our parents build a business without partners or investors and succeeding through hard work, my brother and I really feel like we have a responsibility for this land that we are inheriting. And we look forward to stewarding these acres for the rest of our lives here in Sonoma County.

We feel a tremendous sense of responsibility for this land. History or no history, it’s 75 acres in the Russian River Valley, with animals and migrating bird species. I track migrating bird species and I think my record is 41 separate bird species in one sitting…There’s incredible diversity here in the Russian River Valley and Healdsburg, even on agricultural land.”
