Governor Brown is spending more time at his Williams-area ranch, of which he owns 28%. The 2,500-acre property is home to cattle and honeybees:

The land was bought in 1877 by Brown’s great-grandfather Schuckman, a German immigrant who arrived in California during the Gold Rush and succeeded in “overcoming every obstacle,” as the governor put it in his 2011 inauguration speech. Schuckman’s ranch home also doubled as an inn, known to the family as the “Mountain House,” to capitalize on a stagecoach route bringing tourists to the region’s natural hot springs.
