Chris Hall

Long Meadow Ranch

At age 12, Chris Hall planted his first organic vegetable garden on Long Meadow Ranch with his younger brother Timmy. The two spent every weekend tirelessly caring for their vegetables and preparing for harvest. After countless trips to the grocery store with Laddie, the two decided on pricing and bundling their bounty to be sold at a booth at the St Helena Farmer’s Market. They were a hit! This small vegetable garden would eventually propel Chris to build the vertically integrated agricultural business that Long Meadow Ranch is today and inspire him to pursue “excellence through responsible farming.”

After studying geology and fire science at the University of Colorado, Chris returned to Napa Valley to drive the development of Long Meadow Ranch’s diversified farming activities and food and wine destination, Farmstead.

Chris lives in St Helena with his wife Tara and sons.
