Epicenter: West Marin Ranching (2014-02-12) posted Feb 12 at 2PM

In 1904, Tobias Giacomini left Northern Italy and landed in Northern California with a dream of raising chickens and cows. Thirty-four years later his son Waldo moved his family to Point Reyes, where Waldo's son Bob was raised. In 1959, Bob purchased a dairy farm three miles north of his parent's farm with a dream of making cheese. Now, he and his four daughters have done just that.

Join host Marc Matheson in conversation with Bob Giacomini and daughter Jill Giacomini about growing up on, and operating, West Marin dairy ranches, cheese-making and Point Reyes culture.
