Barbara & Bill Spencer
Known all over Central and Southern California for their meticulously-farmed heirloom produce, Bill and Barbara Spencer own Windrose Farm in Paso Robles. But farming is only a part of what the Spencers do. Barbara is a professional cellist and professor of music at Cal Poly University, and Bill is a passionate advocate for permaculture and human-scale development — and a killer rustic bread-baker, to boot. Their story of purchasing and building Windrose Farm is fascinating, as is their discussion about life on the L.A. restaurant circuit, and what the future holds for them and their property.
