GARY ERICKSON

OWNER & FOUNDER

Gary inherited a passion for outdoor adventure from his father and a love of homemade, authentic cooking from his mother and grandmother. These interests would come together to become Clif Bar & Company, the leading maker of organic energy food.

It was these same interests that also led him to develop a love of food and wine while on cycling trips throughout Europe. A day of cycling would inevitably end with a long meal and a great bottle of wine. Now we strive to bring these experiences to our guests at Clif Family.

KIT CRAWFORD

OWNER & FOUNDER

Kit inherited a passion for natural food from her parents who instilled in her the value of growing your own food and caring for the natural resources of the land. She now finds great pleasure in creating simple, seasonal meals for family and friends using the organic fruits and vegetables that grow on the Clif Family Farm. 

Kit is actively involved in supporting the connection between family farmers and their local communities. She is the President of the Clif Bar Family Foundation and has been an advocate for creating sustainable food systems. As an avid cyclist, gardener and foodie, Kit brings each of these passions to life at Clif Family.
