Fish-Friendly Farming (FFF) Program for Grape Growers

Unique green certification program for grapegrowers: Fish-Friendly Farming provides third-party certification that documents environmentally friendly land practices to restore fish and wildlife habitat and improve water quality. Fish Friendly Farming provides for voluntary, self-directed compliance with the rigorous standards of state and federal water quality laws (Clean Water Act), the federal Endangered Species Act, the state fish and game code as well as local regulations.

Fish-Friendly Farming (FFF) Program. The certified properties encompass 10,000 acres in Mendocino and Sonoma counties, including vineyards.

Fish-Friendly Farming provides third-party certification that documents environmentally friendly land practices. The program addresses a number of issues that concern grape growers:

  • How to interpret and comply with the maze of state and federal environmental regulations, including the Clean Water Act and Endangered Species Act;
  • How to manage their lands using sustainable and environmentally beneficial practices;
  • How to distinguish themselves to the consumer and community as environmental land stewards
In Sonoma and Mendocino counties, FFF addresses a number of sensitive environmental issues. Among them are the need to improve water quality affected by “non-point” sources such as agriculture, and the need to restore the once famous salmon and steelhead fisheries in places such as the Russian and the Navarro rivers.

Some of the certified farms include:

Chelli Vineyard - Sonoma County
Clos du Bois Winery and Vineyards
Drake Vineyard
Fetzer Winery -Sundial Vineyard
Greenwood Ridge Winery and Vineyards
Husch Winery and Vineyards
King Farm and Vineyards
La Ribera Vineyards
Larramendy Vineyard
