Carbon Farmers

Straus Dairy

The historic 493-acre Straus Blake’s Landing Dairy is located along the East shore of Tomales Bay in Marin County. The dairy was one of three ranches to participate in the Marin Carbon Project’s compost trials in 2013 and was one of the first dairies in the region to install a methane digester in 2004 to reduce its methane emissions. The dairy has a stated goal of achieving carbon neutrality and is working to make that goal a reality for itself and other small coastal dairies. Check out the Straus Family Twitter page, and featured articles in Hoard’s Dairyman and BMW Movement.

Stemple Creek Ranch

Fibershed Producer, Climate Beneficial


The 440-acre Stemple Creek Ranch raises certified organic grass fed and finished beef and lamb in Marin County. The ranch was one of three ranches to participate in the Marin Carbon Project’s compost trials starting in 2013, and was one of the first to have a carbon farm plan developed. Through a combination of pasture improvement with diverse and deep-rooted forage species, careful rotational grazing, and application of compost and other soil amendments, the ranch aims to build healthy soils, resilient pastures, and a thriving ecosystem for future generations. Read more about Stemple Creek’s story, how they redefined small-scale ranching, made the push to carbon farming, and listen to how Loren and Lisa Poncia built resilience.
