My family and our dairy farm are very lucky to be located between San Francisco and Yosemite in the Central Valley of California. Because of this location we are in the flight path to and from San Francisco International Airport AKA SFO. When I have a window seat I try to locate my farm as we fly over. Many times I have had a seatmate on flights thoroughly amazed I can pick my farm out from such a high elevation. If you can pick out Yosemite National Park and Half Dome you too can see our farm just a few minutes later as you head west.
We are very lucky to have awesome views of the Sierra Nevada and Coastal ranges, very often we have a front seat view of Half Dome itself.
So as you fly over my farm please wave and remember we are down here everyday working on the farm caring for the cows who are helping provide healthy food for everyone.

I know which landings and takeoffs from Memphis give me a chance to pick out my house…. I love picking out familiar places from so far above.
It’s a farmer skill! I was able to spot our relative’s farm in Maui from the mountain top at Haleakala crater.
