Silicon Valley Software Consultant Turns Water Buffalo Rancher
Craig Ramini left his corporate job in Silicon Valley to become a water buffalo rancher and cheesemaker in Marin County, California. Ramini is still early on in the process, but he plans on making mozzarella from his herd of friendly, furry giants.
It was his innate love for big animals that convinced Ramini to leave the corporate world behind.
“There's something about the presence of large animals that gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling,” he said. “I knew that made me happy.”
Ramini's farm will be open for tours during California's sixth annual Artisan Cheese Festival this weekend. Guests will be able to see the water buffalo up close and coo after the new calves.
