For our second stop, we will visit a family run dairy farm that produces organic milk in Crescent City, Smith River, and Ferndale, California.  The farm is pasture grass-based, grazing organic cows on organic pasture all year long.  They also have organic eggs from pastured poultry, grass-fed beef, and pastured pork. Come tour their Crescent City dairy operation and get a chance to see the maternity barn, baby calves, milking barn, baby chickens, and pasture poultry operation.

Our tour will conclude at Ocean Air’s Annual Fall Shin Digg, and will include a farm tour, hay ride, music, and food!
