SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Sep 16, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) –
Stefano DeZerega, a Top Producer and a Premier Property Specialist
with Zephyr Real Estate, is a volunteer and is on the board of
directors at Pie Ranch — a sustainable farming operation in
Pescadero that is also one of the Bay Area’s more unique community
organizations.

Pie Ranch’s stated mission is to inspire and connect people to know
the source of their food, and to work together to bring greater
health to the food system from seed to table. The farmers there are
composed of staff, volunteers and apprentices who all grow food for
their own sustenance and that of their community while stewarding the
environment. Pie Ranch, so named because of the shape of the land it
inhabits, also grows pie ingredients, which are sold to local
bakeries. This environmentally-conscious enterprise partners with
youth from the Greater Bay Area as well as around the globe, creating
a connection to the land, the staff and each other.

DeZerega’s commitment to this cause and to making the community and
world a better place have led him to join the board of directors of
Pie Ranch as well as research and write a book on international
volunteerism, How to Live Your Dream of Volunteering Overseas
(Penguin 2000).

“Learning to grow your own food in a sustainable and eco-friendly
manner is just part of the reward at Pie Ranch,” commented DeZerega.
“Watching high school students connect with the land and with each
other is simply amazing.” Check out their inspiring video.

Classes visit Pie Ranch monthly and participate in a variety of
farming activities including goat milking, egg collection and cooking
three meals a day. For questions about visits, for details on
pricing, or to schedule a program, contact Kelly Munoz at
Kelly@pieranch.org or 650-879-0995.

Pie Ranch also depends heavily on apprentice farmers, and is working
to develop the next generation of young farmers on the San Mateo
coast. Apprentices commit to a year in return for the opportunity to
experience the full cycle of a farm as well as room, board and a
modest stipend.

The farm’s annual fundraiser will be on September 24. This year’s
theme is This Land Is Your Land. The public is invited to a unique
farm-to-table experience and a gourmet, multi-course meal from Chef
Ryan Harris featuring the farm’s bounty, followed by a barn dance
with live music and freshly-baked pie. Tickets tend to sell out
early, and reservations are recommended.

All proceeds from this event will fund programming that teaches youth
about healthy food and community building, trains emerging farmers
and creates a more sustainable food system. Pie Ranch is a 501(c)3
non-profit.

DeZerega is a member in good standing of the San Francisco,
California and National Associations of REALTORS(R). He is a
third-generation San Franciscan and has a great appreciation of his
hometown and the surrounding Bay Area. He may be contacted at
