Marin Sun Farms is a meat company committed to creating a more sustainable food system by empowering farmers, conserving our landscapes and restoring the vitality of the foodshed and its inhabitants. We proudly operate the last remaining USDA inspected slaughterhouse in the San Francisco Bay Area, a certified organic and Animal Welfare Approved facility, and provide the highest quality meats available in California.
Over the last one hundred years the majority of food production, processing and distribution became consolidated into a handful of large corporations. So began the fast decline of our country’s small farms and farmers. The process of building resiliency in our local food system starts with diversifying supply back into the hands of many small farms and ensuring their continued operations and growth. Understanding this, in 1999 David Evans founded Marin Sun Farms as an extension of his upbringing on his family’s cattle ranch in the Point Reyes National Seashore and has grown the company to be a gateway to market for many small farms raising livestock under the stringent protocol and values the company was founded on.
Today, Marin Sun Farms has grown to be fully vertically integrated from pasture to processing to plate. We employ and empower local folks in Petaluma, Point Reyes Station and Oakland with good jobs including ranch hands, livestock handlers, butchers, packers, drivers, sales people, administrators and dreamers.
