Greener Pastures: A Tour of Marin Sun Farms from Ranch to Butcher Shop
“Eating is an agricultural act”
According to farmer/poet Wendell Berry, “Eating is an agricultural act,” and thus we the producers and you the customer/partner are forever interconnected in our decisions about our health and the food we eat. Because of this, we recognize the well-informed customer/partner is the key element in creating a healthy and vital resource base- the world around us. Come and spend some time with us and learn what we’re all about…
Please join us for a 2-hour conversational / educational tour of our Rogers Ranch in the Point Reyes National Seashore on select Wednesdays. Our tours focus on Marin Sun Farms’ land management through rotational grazing by cattle and chickens, the importance of our farm-to-fork supply chain, and include a moderate 1.5 mile walk through our pastures.
Pre-registration for our farm tours is required. We are a working ranch, and parking space is limited. Unfortunately, children under 5 years old are not allowed on the tour.

- Thanks to everyone who joined us at Rogers Ranch this year for our farm tours! We’ll be announcing our 2013 tour schedule early next year.
Because weather can be variable at the ranch, please dress in layers. It could be overcast and breezy in the morning, then sunny and near 70F by midday. Please remember to bring a water bottle, camera, sunscreen, a windbreaker, a hat, and comfortable walking shoes.
After the tour we invite you to visit our butcher shop in Point Reyes Station, where we offer lunch, beverages, and a full selection of retail meat cuts for sale.
Escorted Private Farm Tour

Escorted tours are generally 2 hours in length, late morning or early afternoon. Please arrive a little early as the tour will start on time and we will not back track for those who are late.
Inquire at danny (at) marinsunfarms (dot) com and please list desired dates and number of attendees.
Please keep in mind that we are a productive farm business that must utilize its time wisely to remain viable. As much as we would love to spend time with everyone, we cannot do so and expect to get our chores accomplished.
