My second week at Arable, we hit the road driving up and down the California coast in our well-worn, off-smelling (do we know what died in there?
) truck. We stopped in Salinas, Watsonville, Yolo, Davis, and Sonoma while listening to a bizarre mix of Garth Brooks and ESG (the only tapes we had in the car
). At Davis, we visited the library at Adam Wolf
’s alma mater, UC Davis, and poured through old agricultural trade magazines and histories. We scoured pictures of obscure agricultural instruments, brands lost to the dusts of time, and logs of historic farming family names.
