Bay Area Green Tours renews its commitment to promoting sustainability by showcasing Bay Area green design, products, projects and businesses with a brand new series of public tours that allows guests to experience the many “fruits” of local sustainable agriculture.
The series kicks off this Saturday September 28, 2013 with a full-day tour of the San Mateo Coast’s eco-friendly farms.
Guests will experience a century-old dairy farm that, following a green makeover now churns out awardwinning goat cheese. They will enjoy a chef-prepared lunch on a working farm with a revived focus on biodiversity, followed by a journey through time at an historic lighthouse:
• The 200 alpine goats that now call Harley's Goat Farm, a restored dairy farm, “home” produce some of California’s best cheese
• Non-profit Pie Ranch supports the Bay Area’s slow food movement with its wide range of homestead-raised offerings, including the wheat used to prepare its celebrated pies
• Pigeon Point Lighthouse, built in 1871, is the West Coast’s tallest lighthouse, and one of tallest in the country
