Stephen Smith is an aspiring polymath and rambling man, whose adventures have taken him through mountain ranges and along coastlines, among roaming hills and wide open spaces, all the while exploring his relationship to the land through farming, ranching, art, adventure sports and business development.
Growing up in North Carolina in an active family he spent most of his developmental days outside exploring the family farm, woods, streams and lakes of this bio-diversifed Southern landscape. Stephen received a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Colorado while finding time to ride mountain bikes, camp, fish and snowboard. Five months on a solo motorcycle adventure through South America piqued his interest in farming, grape growing and winemaking leading him to Napa, Ca where he got his hands dirty working for boutique wineries and vineyards. In 2012, he moved back to Colorado to work as the Director of Business Development for the first Organic distillery in the US and only Biodynamic vineyard in Colorado. Half a year on a 90,000 acre cattle ranch opened Stephen's eyes to large scale land management, animal husbandry as well as agricultural and economic diversification.
With an uncommon collection of experiences and a broad, yet relevant set of skills Stephen and the Wolfe team are ready to deliver creative solutions to help your business reach its goals.
