Located in Bolinas, Fresh Run Farm is a partnership between Chef Michael Tusk and first-generation farmer Peter Martinelli.

Just 30 miles north of San Francisco, Fresh Run Farm produces over 40 varieties of organic fruit, vegetables, and flowers for exclusive use at Chef Tusk’s restaurants. Through this collaboration, each season’s crops and experimentations are decided together, in discovery of which species work best at the farm.

A pristine piece of land that stretches from the seashore to the Paradise Valley, Fresh Run Farm is Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT) protected and is one of the oldest certified-organic farms on the West Coast, a pioneer in creating sustainable, local agriculture in California.

In our partnership with Fresh Run Farm, we are afforded the rare opportunity to help shape those materials and are ever-grateful for Peter and his team for their impact and influence on the restaurants.

In 2020, Quince received one of the inaugural Michelin Green Stars, awarded to restaurants with a commitment to being at the forefront of sustainable practices. This award was a direct result of our work with Fresh Run Farm.
