Giacomini Dairy Farm tour, Thursday, October 24, 2019
The Giacomini Dairy Farm is an iconic, and picturesque, West Marin Dairy Farm on the East side overlooking Tomales Bay just North of Pt Reyes Station. It is a 1000-head dairy farm which makes some of its cheeses from milk produced on its farm, so can be called a" Farmstead “cheese company.
The tour is of the dairy farm first, followed by a cheese tasting on the lovely patio next to its visitor center. The farm is an exemplar of sustainable, organic dairy farming with a technologically sophisticated methane recapture system powering 65% of the farm’s energy needs and is an example of land being protected in West Marin to sustain the agricultural heritage of the area close to the Pt. Reyes National Seashore.
