Timshel Nursery & Vineyard is owned and operated by the Thompson family. Becca and Craig met at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and dreamed of living in an agriculture area and create a nursery and vineyard.

In 1997 they moved the plans north of Chico to begin making this a reality. Craig has over thirty years experience in the nursery industry and Becca has a degree in chemistry and works in the medical field. Matt (UCLA ’06) does the books, Nate (Chico St ’09) grew up in the Ag industry and focused on viticulture and winemaking following his graduation from Chico State. He has worked for J. Lohr in Paso Robles and Buena Vista in Sonoma in both the cellar and the vineyards.Nate

Bethany graduated from Cal Poly ('09) in Ag Business and Viticulture and did her senior project on sustainability in the wine industry.  She has worked at Olsenn's  and Constellation in New Zealand, Torbreck in Australia, Freestone in Sonoma and this summer will be at Vin de Vienne in France. Jordan works in the nursery and vineyard while finishing his degree at Chico State.Bethany
