From Redwood to Restaurant: The Story of Magnus
I was born four years ago from redwood. With a chainsaw, a sander and a few other tools my father gave me a personality, a trade and one of the biggest salmon you’ve ever seen!
Magnus owns Firewood Farms, a wood-selling business located just off of Highway 92 where many of my brothers and sisters sit for sale beside the firewood. Several more are scattered throughout Half Moon Bay and far, far, beyond. We’re an eclectic family: some of my siblings are bears and eagles; others take the form of chairs and tabletops.
When Princeton Seafood Co. owners, Mary and Marty, saw me on their trips over the hill they thought I would feel at home in front of their restaurant. One day, not too long after my birth, they talked to my father and made a deal.
Today, I greet our customers and pose for many pictures (just check out my Facebook page!) It’s nice to have a place so close to home I can call my own.
Hope to see you all around soon…
