We have decided to end our Shuck-Your-Own picnic program at our farm.
It’s the end of an era, and we’re sad to see it come to a close! We know how special these picnic tables have been for so many of you, and we hope you understand this decision has not been an easy one for us.
One of the contributing factors to ending this program, and most important to our core values, was the impact on our coastal environment and our local community. With no limitations on what visitors could bring into our picnic area, we could not control the amount of non-recyclable and non-compostable waste generated each day. Our goal at our farm has always been to provide an exceptional farm-to-plate experience while taking care of our environment and preserving our pristine coastline. And a year without shuck-your-own picnic tables has shown us just how much of an impact they have had on our surroundings.
The good news is, The Boat Oyster Bar, our outdoor cafe, will remain open so you can continue to enjoy this beautiful space on Tomales Bay every weekend. Our Hog Shack will continue to offer oysters, local seafood, and picnic essentials to-go daily. We invite you to stop by, grab some oysters and explore the wonderful parks and beaches West Marin has to offer! Head to Dillon Beach for a seaside picnic, or explore the exquisite parks along the Point Reyes Seashore. All we ask is that you pick up after yourselves and leave the place better than you found it (that includes oyster shells, too!).
We are excited about what’s to come, and we hope you will be too. Until then, thank you for your continued patronage and support!
