Linda Menary will be the first to admit it, with a chuckle: She's an outlaw at worst and a San Fernando Valley anachronism at best. Tanned and heavyset, her long, sun-bleached blond hair tied into a low ponytail, Menary strides across her six-acre spread on Winnetka Avenue with the easy gait of a rancher. The 55-year-old businesswoman runs The Farm in Northridge, which operates as a pumpkin patch in the fall, a Christmas tree lot in winter and a farmers market in spring.
