Tipped off by a colleague that lives around the corner from Point Reyes Station, I headed to lunch here on a Saturday to find fuel for a big hike in Tomales Bay. I take the phrase I'm about to write quite seriously, but the beef burger I had here is among the best on the face of the Earth. Ever.
Marin Sun Farms takes great care in honoring their surroundings and their animals and the local butcher shop is a lesson in sustainable farming. Their outdoor picnic space is inviting and their intimate cafe is the perfect place to tuck in and warm up with some delicious fare.
David Evans is the founder and CEO that oversees operations of two ranch leases just north of Inverness, Marin County, California. They focus on beef, poultry and egg production. In their own words, their goal is 'to participate in creating a more sustainable food model and inspire an agrarian culture that conserves our landscapes, supports the health of its inhabitants and restores the vitality of a region that has thrived for hundreds of years.'

From Pasture to Fork
Before heading back to San Jose from Point Reyes Station, we always stop by Marin Sun Farms. We go there to buy grass-fed beef, but this combination butcher shop/restaurant also sells pasture-raised pork, poultry, lamb and goat. You might have sticker shock if you're not used to buying grass-fed meats, but you can't beat the quality. And it's nice that they fill your cooler with ice to keep your purchases fresh.
