We can honestly say that Ruth was at Veritas before Veritas was Veritas. Ruth started at Saddleback farm in 1980 taking care of the horses that were housed here. When the Hodsons bought the farm she taught them everything she knew about the property, and continues to do so. Ruth was born and raised in Afton, and before she was the Queen of Saddleback Farm she was an Airforce Fuel System Specialist.
As an aside, the number on Ruth’s shirt in this photo refers to the number of tons of grapes that were brought in during the 2015 harvest – our largest harvest ever!
