Jeff Stanford is the co-owner and founder of the Stanford Inn eco-resort—the only vegan resort in the United States. During their 34 years running the Inn, Jeff and his wife Joan have built a business that is an integral part of their lives. Maintaining a business that is completely in line with their personal values and ethics, Jeff and Joan are committed to encouraging both the guests at their inn and the patrons in their dining room to lead ecologically conscious and responsible lives. Most come away from their experience more enlightened about living an earth friendly lifestyle that is as pleasant as it is sustainable.
Jeff writes and speaks publicly about starting a truly sustainable business in the 21st century and highlights how people can still work and create capital in today’s world while keeping in line with their personal values, spirituality, and ethics.
