Cuyama Lamb Organization

Since moving up to Ventura County, I have spent a lot of time driving on the beautiful 126 freeway. I kept seeing these sheep in a field while driving to set. One day I pulled over and walked up and met Jenya, who told me about their organization Cuyama Lamb. Their mission is the regeneration of native California grasslands and the sustainable production of ethically raised food & fiber.

Months later, our schedules aligned, and I was able to photograph them working in Santa Barbara, clearing overgrowth for fire prevention. The shepherds were all so lovely and welcoming to me. It was such a rad experience, and I'm excited to keep expanding on this project.
