Big Wine fails to dry farm during California’s drought
SONOMA COUNTY — in the heart of California’s Redwood Empire — California Governor Jerry Brown spent this year’s Earth Day at the elite Iron Horse Winery in the Sebastopol countryside. It was a great photo opportunity and promotion for the winery. Iron Horse is known for donations to President Bill Clinton and other politicians, with whom it has cosy relationships, and from whom it receives favours, such as these visits. I operate a small berry and apple farm nearby and teach sustainable agriculture, mainly to college students.
