Sue Conley and Nan Haynes bought Silver Penny Farm from the Cardoza family for the purpose of creating workforce housing and opening the Big House to conservation groups for meetings and retreats. The land is currently feeding pastured sheep from the Gilardi family who live across the road between Lakeville Highway and the Petaluma River . We also host honey hives of honey bees for Sola Bee. The company collects the honey and transport the bees to nearby orchards for pollination in the spring
