History

Marin French all started on a dairy farm.

In1865, the Civil War was drawing to an end, railroads connected east and west, European immigrants were settling in Marin County to farm the lush coastal land.

And, at his West Marin dairy farm, Jefferson Thompson made deliciously fresh cheese using the milk from his dairy cows. Thompson would then ship it by schooner to the hungry dockworkers in San Francisco. He soon gained renown for his European style cheeses – soft-ripened Brie, Camembert and a simple treat called Breakfast Cheese – and founded a creamery that would eventually be known as Marin French Cheese.

Today, nearly 150 years later, Marin French Cheese operates in the same location, making them the longest continually operating cheese company in America. They still create the same classic styles of Brie and Camembert using only the freshest milk from neighboring family dairies. They continue to craft cheese in small batches using traditional cultures coaxing the distinctly coastal California character and flavor into every cheese.
