Bodega Byways by Eva Granahan

Patty Karlin is an engaging fixture of Bodega. For twenty years, from 1984 to 2004, she ran the Bodega Goat Cheese company with her husband Javier Salmon. I have fond memories, when as a young girl in the 90’s, I spent time on the ranch playing with the baby goats. When the marriage ended, they both kept the rights to the business name. Patty cstill has control of the 7.5 acre ranch that can sustain 60-80 goats at a time. Amongst other things, Patty is very concerned with carbon footprints. In one year for 60 goats she would pay a $25,000 feed bill, which could be drastically lessened by growing the needed food herself.

After its 18-month hiatus, Ariel Coddington has taken over our beloved Bodega Country store. She is the sole-proprietress and has been running the place on her own day in and day out since the soft opening on September 1st. She is a kind and gentle Israeli who would love to meet each of you. This is her seventh year in California and second year here in quaint little Bodega, which she loves. So far she’s had great experiences meeting everybody - most neighbors are personable and happy to have the store back. The community really came together for her, bringing signs to display in front and attract others.
