At Medlock Ames Vineyard located in Alexander Valley, California, conservation is core to their farming practices. They know their actions support essential services for their vineyard like pest control from birds. Barn Owls are encouraged with nest boxes, and hawks with perches, making rodents much less of a problem. Western Bluebirds are supported with nest boxes too and they will likely help keep Sharpshooter numbers down.
