Biography

After graduating from Stanford, Lynda joined the man she loves -- her husband Emmett -- in his childhood home of Sonoma County. The couple put down roots together by starting Foggy River Farm, a diversified organic farm, on the Hopkins family property. Lynda and Emmett now have two daughters, Gillian and Addy: they're the fourth generation to pick apples from the old Gravenstein apple trees by the Russian River.

Foggy River Farm is a "family-run, community-oriented farm" whose mission is to "grow food that is good for our souls, our bodies, and the land." The farm's Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program feeds over 75 families, and you can also find their produce at farmers' markets and restaurants around the county. Foggy River Farm is entering its ninth full growing season.
