Farm Tour: West Marin - Thursday, November 18


We’ll start our day by meeting in the Hay Barn at the Straus Home Ranch for coffee, pastries, stories and more. So much of the rich Northern California Dairy history has its roots here at Straus. 

Next, we’ll head to Tomales Farmstead Creamery for some quality time with their goats and sheep! As we walk around their beautiful ranch, we’ll catch a glimpse of their cheese-making operation and learn about their dairy farm directly from the herdmaster. Afterward, we’ll taste their award-winning cheeses and enjoy a delicious Cheese School picnic lunch out in the field.

Lastly, a visit with the rock star buffalo of Ramini Farms and their people where we will hear their inspiring story. We will enjoy time out in the pasture, visit the milking barn and delight in tasting the unmatched silkiness of freshly made buffalo mozzarella. You will come away with a deep appreciation of these incredible animals… this will be a truly unforgettable experience!
