Every good business has an inspiration, and ours is Carl. Carl valued good whiskey, good music, cooking, and fine friendships. He loved his family with a deep reverence. Carl’s other loves were the systems in place on Earth that make human life possible, and desirable. He commanded an understanding of the natural environment that few folks comprehend, and he had a great respect for those who work with the land to create a better life for all. He was a biologist, mentor, champion, arbitrator, and advisor, and he is deeply missed.
“…when tired at last, he sat on the bank, while the river still chattered on to him, a babbling procession of the best stories in the world, sent from the heart of the earth to be told at last to the insatiable sea.” – Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
