Napa Valley reveals its assets today in the 2008 Napa Uncovered Calendar

Napa, CA – October 12, 2007 – “Robust, full-bodied and playful with a long finish”: Those are a few of the adjectives commonly use to describe the 2008 Napa Uncovered Calendar.  The Napa County Farm Bureau today announced the official release of the 2008 Napa Uncovered Calendar, in which 13 NCFB members uncover their assets to raise funds for farmland protection. 
“The calendar shows the bare essence of Napa and is an entertaining and subtly revealing look at Napa agriculture,” said Sandy Elles, NCFB executive director.
Michael Hanna-Mr. JuneMichael Hanna, Mr. June, enthusiastically supported the project as a fun approach to Farm Bureau’s serious mission of protecting Napa’s agricultural legacy.
“Napa Uncovered highlights Farm Bureau’s efforts to promote land conservation and sustainable agriculture,” said Hanna who is a grape grower and involved in the family winery, Muir-Hanna Vineyards. The conservation ethic runs deep in the Hanna family, as Mike is a direct descendant of the famous naturalist John Muir. 
The 2008 Napa Uncovered Calendar is now available and can be purchased at for $18, or $36 for the limited edition of the autographed calendar.  Proceeds from the calendar support Napa County agricultural preservation.
NCFB is a voluntary, non-profit, non-governmental organization whose basic goal is to ensure the proper political, economic, environmental and social climate for the continuation of agriculture.  Today, NCFB strives to preserve land for agriculture, and creates policies and programs that allow us to maintain a high quality of life in Napa County.
