 Emily Taylor   OWNER   The story of Emily the farmer starts with Emily the interior designer. For someone who has always loved food, creating a sustainable, beautiful, and practical system for its production was a logical next step. On the ranch first acquired by her father in the 1950’s, Emily is inspired by the history of Amador County, rich in arable land and strong local communities. She is tasked with the humbling work of producing an integrated and regenerative agricultural system to provide the highest quality produce and pasture raised meats to clients who share her desire to mix old knowledge with new innovation. Emily works alongside her family Ned, Molly and Madeline, and a dedicated and influential team.
