  1. Hello Wayne,
    Thanks so much for covering the Marin French 150th Anniversary story. I’d like to mention 2 items that didn’t print correctly: 1) Jim Boyce was not related to the Thompson family but purchased Marin French Cheese from the family in 1998. 2) Rians, the present owner is a family of French cheesemakers, not German.

    Thanks again,

    1. Lynne, many of our followers, in particular on Facebook, are wondering if tours are or will be available anytime in the near future. You will note that for many of us who grew up in the area have fond childhood memories of the tours.

      1. Hi Wayne,
        In the interest of food safety and to comply with new FDA rules, we’ve had end the public tours of the plant. To help our guests see and understand the cheesemaking process, we’ve made a video that is on display in the retail shop for everyone to enjoy at their leisure. The shop is open 7 days a week from 8:30-5:00 and we invite all our longtime friends and new visitors to take a peek behind the scenes through this new video.
