KING 5 TV broadcasts Sara Foster interview on evening News –

‘A lot,’ she smiled. ‘They drink a lot.’

Foster also has pigs, chickens, a garden, and bees. Nearly everyone’s thirsty here. Lucky for them, Foster has senior water rights.

‘I would’ve planned ahead. I would’ve planned far ahead,’ Foster said.
