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 9 am to 5 pm.

The safety and comfort of staff and visitors remain our top priority. Masks are still required inside the shop. Outside will follow the new California mask guidelines. Any groups over 15 guests must call first. Thank you for understanding, and we will be reassessing on a weekly basis.


Our store is open Monday - Sunday from 9 am – 5 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 visitors be respectful of our grounds. Marin French Cheese Co. is owned and operated on private property, dogs are not permitted inside the shop and must always remain leashed. Please respect the signs for when the grounds are closed and be understanding that picnic tables are for paying customers.
