Peterson's Farm

 

Peterson's Farm welcomes you. We sell eggs, honey and produce from our garden when it is in season.


All farm products are raised pesticide and herbicide free and
the chickens have free run in the poultry yard and our orchard through a special door that opens at sun-up and closes after
they come home to roost at sun-down.
We are a certified Bee Friendly Farm!

Honey -Eggs- tomatoes-seasonal fruits:apples, pears, peaches, plums, and persimmons
- Farm Animals to look at are our two ponies, cows, calves,
chickens, rabbits and our goose-



We planted an orchard of peaches, pears, apples and plums. We also have two varieties of persimmons, hychiya and giant fuyu. These fruits are
pollinated by our own honey bees and any bees that
live within a three-mile radius of our farm.

 


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 Washington and go West to Payran. Turn right and then right on Petaluma Bvld. That will take you to Gossage Ave. It is the first left turn after the Outlet Mall. Make a left turn.
Go up the hill to 636 Gossage Ave.

Ask one of us to show you the bees in the observation bee hive that is in the barn. They fly in and out a tube through the barn wall.


Whatever is available to purchase is on display either in front of the barn, just inside the barn or in the refrigerator where we keep the eggs cool. We leave containers for money and encourage you to make your own change if you do not see us around.
