MALT Producer Spotlight: Jim Jensen

May 1, 2020

Each morning, Jim Jensen rises early to steward MALT-protected farmland. A fifth generation West Marin rancher, Jim grazes sheep and cattle on several ranches near the town of Tomales, ranches that are protected in perpetuity with MALT agricultural conservation easements. The Jensen family has ranched the grassy, windswept hillsides of the region since the mid-1800s, first partnering with MALT in the early 1990s. Jim’s passion for Marin’s agricultural heritage and community, and dedication to rangeland management and conservation ultimately brought him to MALT where he now leads MALT’s stewardship team in the role of Stewardship Manager.

Join Jim virtually in the video below as he makes his morning rounds on Mitchell Ranch, MALT protected since 1992.
