Oyster farm visits
The Drakes Bay Oyster Farm is our main attraction. Everyone is welcome at our Oyster Farm during business hours. Our on-farm retail store features our freshly harvested shellfish, grass-fed beef, artichokes, as well as other locally produced farm products. If you would like to arrange for a group tour, please call ahead of time to schedule.
Stay and enjoy oysters right on the farm for an authentic experience, or bring a cooler to take some home with you. To help ensure that oysters are available when you visit, please call ahead of time. If you are placing a large order, a phone call a day or two before pickup is reccommended. The farm can be reached by calling (415) 669-1149.
Beef ranch and artichoke farm visits
At this time, we are not offering regular visits to the beef ranch or to the artichoke farm. Our decision to limit access to these areas has to do with our commitment to lowering the environmental impact of our farming practices.
Make a day of your trip to Point Reyes. Hiking is a great way to experience our surroundings.
Come for the food, stay for the natural beauty.
Drakes Bay Family Farms is surrounded by beauty, and we plan to keep it that way! Come up to hike, kayak, or visit some nearby national and state landmarks. Reserve your oysters ahead of time, and you can take them out to picnic in the beautiful Point Reyes National Seashore or Tomales Bay State Park.
Point Reyes National Seashore offers a variety of recreational and educational opportunities, depending upon your interests and the planned length of your stay in the park. Visitors can easily spend a day, a weekend, or even longer exploring what Point Reyes has to offer. The park maintains more than 140 miles of trails, four backcountry campgrounds, several historical structures, three visitor centers, numerous beaches accessible by car and/or foot, and much, much more. Use the links in the right-hand column for more information.
No trip to the Point Reyes National Seashore is complete without a trip to the Lighthouse. Located on the rocky promontory of the Point Reyes Headlands, the historic light (first operated in 1870) contains the original first-order lens and still operational clockworks. The 300 steps that lead down to the Lighthouse are a short 0.4 miles from the parking area. The lighthouse observation platform is the best place to see gray whales on their southward and northward migrations (January-April). Visit the NPS Point Reyes Lighthouse Page for more information
