Cattleman Bill Bishop Jr. knows cows, horses, and working dogs. He and his father, Bill Bishop Sr., have been grazing cattle at the newly-protected Rockville Trails Preserve for 42 years. The elder Bishop is now 93 and retired, but he is far from retiring. He still calls himself a "suntanned, swivel-hipped cowboy."
Father and son are both cowboys—the real thing—holding onto their livelihood in the middle of swank wineries and five-star restaurants in the Napa Valley. Read about Bishop Cattle Company in "Meet the Farmer," a series of profiles I write about farmers and ranchers for Solano Land Trust.
