Tour/Visit Info:
Marin French Cheese Company, producer of Brie, Camembert and original French-style cheeses, will celebrate 150 years of artisan cheese production in the same Marin County location in 2015. Marin French Cheese Company was founded by Jefferson Thompson as Thompson Brothers Creamery back in 1865.

The company remained owned and managed by Thompson family descendants under the brand name of “Rouge et Noir” through more than 13 decades of tumultuous California history, including prohibition, the Great Depression, World War II and the 1970s arrival of California fine wines and foods on the global scene.

At its idyllic Hicks Valley Ranch location in Northern California, Marin French hosts visitors from around the world to sample its distinctive cheese offerings, enjoy a picnic on the premises and visit its creamery retail shop open to the public year-round.

Store hours: open from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm seven days per week. Closed on these Holidays: New Years day, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas day
