Meet a Farmer
George and Kit Lee of Old Chatham Ranch
Old Chatham Ranch
George and Kit bought the Old Chatham Ranch in 1979 after a long search of properties in Northern California. Yorkville was ideally situated for our growing family that needed to commute to the Bay Area for the next few years. After years of restoration of the ranch house and planting 1,000 Tuscan varietal olive trees and 15 acres of wine grapes, George and Kit moved to the ranch and became full time hands-on farmers in 2005.
OUR PERFECT DAY
Days are busy, full of chores and unexpected pleasures, and always end with a meal that is graced with our wine and olive oil. How wonderful is that?! The only way to make the day more wonderful is to have all the grandchildren here working with us side-by-side, picking the olives and laughing with their joy-filled voices. Perfection!
