Nikki Ausschnitt and Steve Krieg
Before starting Petit Teton, Steve spent 25 years as corporate counsel for Bank of America. Nikki was a fine artist in paint, drawing, and sculpture. In 2004 they bought land in Anderson Valley and over the years with a few good teachers, learned to farm.
Petit Teton Farm, named for a small mountain visible from the driveway, added a commercial kitchen in 2011 and the farm motto became: “We grow it. We can it.” The farm grows a cornucopia of organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs, which are used in all its canned foods as well as sold fresh.
