Homage provides a menu reflecting and honoring our bounty of farms within the Bay Area. Our team travels to the market every week, building farm relationships and gathering what we decide is in perfect ripeness, ultimately preparing an ever changing and concise menu.

THis Month, We Pay HOMAGE TO…
Sandi McGinnis-Garcia, and Sara Evett,
mentored by Howard McGinnis
17.5 acres in Watsonville, CA
about 99 miles from Homage
Started Working the Land:
In the 60's , and went full-time in 1972
More on the Institution:
McGinnis Ranch is steep: it sits on a 12% grade. The harder it rains, the less fun it is for Howard, who sometimes spends days replacing soil that has washed down the hill. But the grade allows maximum sun exposure and extends the farm's season significantly.
McGinnis Ranch lies in the Elkhorn Slough Watershed. The Elkhorn Slough is the largest tidal estuary outside of San Francisco Bay and home to many plant, animal, and bird species.
Sara states, " I think a lot of people think that it would be a thankless job, but it is not at all.
I couldn't ask for more."
