Thistlepicker Farm


Catherine Tullner


Thistlepicker is a no-till, organic, hand-labor farm & garden operation run by Catherine Tullner and Caleb Vognsen. We were both trained as lawyers, and built careers in San Francisco (Catherine developed her own private practice, and Caleb became a carpenter), but since we met two years ago we realized we love growing together on gorgeous land more than anything else. That, and we enjoy giving our ancient rescue dog a chance to hunt gophers.

Currently working a rented acre along Middle Two Rock Road in Petaluma, we sell vegetables, herbs, flowers, and eggs. We have sold and grown-on-demand for local markets and restaurants, including Bi-Rite Market, Delfina Pizzeria, and Secret Kitchen.
