1400 Bay Hill Rd.
Salmon Creek Ranch is situated between the villages of Bodega and Bodega Bay on the glorious Sonoma coast, about 80 minutes north of San Francisco. It is bordered on the south by Bay Hill Rd. and by Salmon Creek Rd. on the north, and has almost 400 acres of rolling hills, natural pasture, steeper ravines, redwood groves and forest. Over a mile and a half of Salmon Creek itself, a designated riparian habitat, meanders within its northern end. Tucked among similar sized parcels on an isolated stretch of the coast, it was originally part of the 580 acre Boreta ranch, a thriving dairy operation until the 1980′s. Subsequent owners leased its pastures to local ranchers and it was used for non-intensive grazing up until the time we purchased the land in August of 2007. Since then, we have obtained organic certification for its pastures through the California Certified Organic Farmers and are raising Muscovy ducklings for meat and eggs, Kiko goats for meat and breeding stock, and local bees who provide us with honey.
