Lone Birch

Washington, USA

The owners of Lone Birch have been farming in the Yakima Valley for over four generations. One of the pinnacle landmarks on the farm is the 70 year old Lone Birch Tree that resides amongst the vineyards. This tree not only provides shade to workers and direction to lost travelers, but most importantly, it provides inspiration to the family. The birch tree was planted by the family's great-great-grandfather, who had a great love for nature and was an inspirational steward of the land. This symbolic tree serves as a reminder of their commitment to care for the environment, to reduce their carbon footprint, utilize sustainable farming practices, and ensure the farm lives on for generations to come.
