The local food industry was rocked by the recent news that Craig Ramini, the founder of Ramini Mozzarella, died last week from a short battle with cancer.
News of his sickness filtered through the community when wife Audrey Hitchcock set up a fundraiser for his medical bills and announced she was suspending operations at the creamery — at least temporarily.
As the news sinks in, friends are working to help maintain the Tomales ranch and hope to garner enough support to keep Ramini’s dream alive. So far, nearly $16,000 has been raised, but much more is needed.
