Peterson's Farm

Peterson's Farm is now concentrating on beekeeping, raising a variety of chickens for eggs and giving school tours to educate children about small family farms, honey bees and earth worms..

All farm products are raised pesticide and herbicide free and
the chickens have free run in the poultry yard.
We are a certified Bee Friendly Farm!

School Tours with Educational talks about
Honey Bees in the Spring and Summer by appointment.

School tours can be booked now.

We can make reservations for school Spring tours. The spring tours will teach the children about bees, earth worms and farm animals.

We are retiring from pumpkin farming this year! It was lots of fun and we thank all of you who came year after year. We will spend more time with the bees and planting for them and educating people about them.

Located just north of Petaluma, California, this farm is in
the scenic historic countryside of Sonoma County. It was once one of the many chicken ranches that made Petaluma "the egg basket of the world".

Directions from Highway 101: Leave Highway 101 at the north end of town and go South on Petaluma Blvd. North. That will take you to Gossage Ave. Gossage Ave. is the next street after the Cinnabar Theater. Make a right turn.
Go up the hill to 636 Gossage Ave.
