Technically, if they were farmers, they would no longer qualify under the USDA’s definition of “Beginning Farmer.”

On August 30, 2009, California FarmLink and over 100 of its friends, farmers, funders, and new acquaintances wiled away the afternoon at Oak Hill Farm in Glen Ellen, CA, celebrating ten years of working to keep land in agriculture and farmers on that land. We were blessed with perfect weather, a bucolic setting at the hundred year old white barn, surrounded by fields of fruit, flowers, giant oaks and peak bounty of summer vegetables. Enjoying freshly prepared bite sized samples of local lamb, goat, cheeses, pizzas loaded with veggies, gazpacho, and vivid juicy organic strawberries picked that day in Watsonville CA. Local wines and music added to the mid summer afternoon, as well as a lengthy tour of some of the 600 acre diverse farm that is Oak Hill.
