“Farming is not for wimps or the faint of heart. Bolinas is pretty unique in that it has a greenbelt of working farmland from the seashore land and R.C.A. all the way around almost to Dogtown, and we want to preserve that greenbelt—and encourage other properties to take these kinds of steps to do so. Preservation is for the long-haul.” - Peter Martinelli
Fresh Run Farm
Located near Bolinas, CA, Fresh Run Farm is operated by third-generation farmer Peter Martinelli and was one of the earliest certified organic farms on the West Coast.
Fresh Run Farm grows over 40 varieties of carefully selected heirloom fruits, vegetables and flowers of exceptional quality exclusively for Chef Michael and Lindsay Tusk's restaurants, Quince, Cotogna and Verjus. The seasonally-changing menu at Quince stems from this close collaboration and partnership between Peter, Chef Michael Tusk and the Quince culinary team.
Peter remains dedicated to maintaining the integrity of organic food production. He is a strong advocate for the preservation of local, family-scale farming in Marin County. He sits on the board of the Marin Agricultural Land Trust, The Marin County Farm Bureau, and was a founding member of Marin Organic. He is also a board member of The Wild Farm Alliance, a non-profit dedicated to the creation and maintenance of wildlife habitats on farms and ranches.
Fresh Run Farm grows conscientiously and organically to safeguard this agricultural resource for future generations to come.
