The Beckman and Keegan ranches, totaling over 100 acres, were certified in 2008 and are managed to protect soil using cover crops.

Lytton Estate East Ranch
This 50-acre site is situated on the rolling hills between Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley. A number of creeks dissect the site.

As part of their farm plan, Ridge Vineyards will be working with the FFF program to complete a revegetation plan for several of the creeks. In 2003, Ridge Vineyards was recognized with an award from FFF for Excellence in Water Quality Improvement and Protection.

Quivira Vineyards & Winery

This stretch of Wine Creek supports Coho salmon but due to channel entrenchment moving upstream from Dry Creek, the creek is also significantly degraded with eroding stream banks and undercut and dying riparian forest.
