Historic Sale for Black Mountain

April 15, 2021

Mr. Houtzager is not a rancher, so he plans to lean on experts at the Marin Agricultural Land Trust, which purchased the property’s development rights in 1993. Mr. Houtzager is a donor to MALT, and he views the land trust as a co-owner. He is bringing in new tenants and expanding the operations of existing producers—all in the name of sustainable, organic and local agriculture, fulfilling Mr. Osborn’s dream that he did not have the money to carry out.
