Michael Gilbert

Wholesale Account Manager

Clif Family was founded by Gary Erickson & Kit Crawford in 2004 in St. Helena, California to focus on making high quality wines and small batch food products that sustain the natural resources of the local community and bring awareness of organic and sustainable farming to others.

At Clif Family we’re guided by our values. We call them our Five Aspirations – Sustaining Our Business, Our Brands, Our People, Our Community and Our Planet. This means growing a healthy company; maintaining the integrity of our brands; taking care of our employees; supporting the communities where we live and work; and working to reduce our ecological footprint in everything we do.

Our Solar Grown honey is one of our most exciting projects yet! The honey we use for our Solar Grown products, including our Good Food Award finalists (Cacao Honey Spread & Cobanero Hot Honey) are harvested from hives located on pollinator-friendly solar farms. The energy that solar farms capture from the sun creates many positive benefits for our planet and our communities. Planting pollinator-friendly habitats under these solar farms contributes to a meaningful and positive difference for bees, butterflies and other pollinators.

My name is Michael Gilbert, I am the Wholesale Account Manager here at Clif Family and have been with the team since Fall of 2018!
