Since 1856, the Jensen family has run sheep in coastal, beautiful Tomales, CA.  Begun by Joseph Irvin, the ranch tradition of sheep is continued with Bill and Jim Jensen, 5th and 6th generation ranchers.  Jim Jensen also works for Marin Agricultural Land Trust, and has begun implementing carbon farming plans on the land.  Their Dorset wool, crossed with Suffolk and Columbia, is part of the Climate Beneficial Wool Pipeline, and is used by Coyuchi and Full Circle Wool.
