We met Sarah in 2016 when she took over the business for Bill Lincoln who is a good guy and a good friend.  Sarah is a hands-on aggressive get it done type of person that understands the sensitivity of and environmental challenges of agriculture and ag development in the north coast.  She’s awesome with mapping and getting in the middle of potentially uncomfortable issues and figuring out reasonable solutions for all parties.
