Ferndale Farms, Jill Hackett

Jill Hackett is a vivacious rancher and a generous person — I know this because she opens her ranch up to the College of the Redwoods classes.  There she demonstrates land management, stream restoration, management of both cattle and sheep herds that are hearty enough to survive the wet Humboldt winters with the help of her guard dogs.  Coyotes are no match for the large Turkish Akbash.

We had so much to talk about — well, it took 2 interviews!
