Doniga and her family own and run a successful permaculture DESIGN based ranch that produces grass fed beef, pastured pork, grass fed lamb, and raw dairy herd They direct market their products to the consumer and practice key-line design and holistic ranching.
Doniga comes to ranching with a background in nature and permaculture. This has given her a perspective on the real risks that we are facing as a species. In her youth she was mentored by some of the leading wildlife trackers, naturalists and Native spiritual elders. She spent years alone and with a small group of passionate youth in the Western Washington Wilderness learning the ways of the ancestors, immersing in nature, bird language, survival skills and wildlife tracking.
Along with her husband and four children, Doniga owns and operates Markegard Family Grass-Fed LLC supplying the Bay Area with local, nutrient-dense foods. The family ranch leases land throughout the Bay Area spanning over 8000 acres.
