We welcome visitors daily to picnic by our pond. We hear stories of couples who got engaged over a cheese-picnic, learned to drive in our parking lot, met the school bus under our big Cheese Factory sign, or worked in the packing room during school breaks. Come share our cheese, your memories and most of all, our appreciation for so many wonderful years making cheese in beautiful Marin County. Open Monday - Sunday 10 am to 6 pm.

We are in compliance with Covid19 Marin County regulations and ask our visitors to follow the same safety measures.


Our store is open Monday - Sunday from 10 am – 6 pm, except for major holidays.

We love our customers and want everyone to share in the enjoyment of our beautiful property. We ask that all of our customers be respectful of our grounds. Marin French Cheese is owned and operated on private property, we ask that you do not bring your dogs, respect the signs for when the grounds are closed, and please know that picnic tables are for paying customers only.
