David Evans, founder and owner, oversees operations of his ranch properties in Marin County and also co-produces livestock with ranches within the Bay Area Food-Shed who are critical in filling in his own seasonal gaps and limitations in production. Marin Sun Farms (MSF) is an extension of his families’ farming heritage, nestled in the rolling grasslands of the Point Reyes National Seashore in Northern California.
MSF Mission: To actively participate in the creation of a more sustainable food model and an agrarian culture that restores, conserves, and maintains the productivity of our landscapes and the health of its inhabitants. To accomplish this we focus on the production of local, pasture based food to feed our Bay Area communities.
We align our production by mimicking natural processes on the landscape that are holistic, connected, and understanding of key resource principles. We contend that fostering a stable and fully functioning ecosystem will lead to long term viability and a more sustainable future for all life. With that goal in mind, we raise 100% grass fed beef, lamb, goat, pasture raised chickens, pork and some of the best eggs available.
