If you live in the Bay Area, you might be familiar with Pie Ranch:
“Since 2005, Pie Ranch has operated as a working farm, hosting youth from regional high schools to participate in farm-based programs and activities. Pie Ranch also works with educators and community collaborators in diverse urban, suburban and rural settings to help students apply what they’ve learned at Pie Ranch in their daily lives. In addition, Pie Ranch mentors aspiring farmers as resident apprentices who spend a full year immersed in all aspects of farm operations and marketing.”
Oh, and they sell delicious pies (at Pie Ranch in Pescadero and Mission Pie in San Francisco).
What you may not know is that members of their team lives in yurts on the property!
Imagine living in a yurt and waking up to the Pacific Ocean every day…sigh.
