This is a great place to stop of the road from Highway 101 to the coast and it's not just for the cheese. The deli has a wide selection and there are picnic tables near their lake. You can even bring along some wine which goes well with the sandwiches and cheese.

Have been back to this place multiple times- love sitting out on park benches outside by the pond, enjoying the countryside in good weather. The cheese sampling is fun and the deli sandwiches are delicious. A good place to bring children. Warning: wear suitable shoes for the grassy areas as geese congregate there and you might find yourself stepping on... More

We visited the Marin County artisan cheese area and Marin French Cheese was one of the highlights. Just outside of Petaluma, situated next to a beautiful pond with a large picnic area. The busy, beautifully appointed store has a full selection of their cheeses in all sizes - primarily Brie, Camembert and other triple cream, soft ripening cheeses. All cheeses... More

You can get a tour of the factory which is very interesting. There is a shop where you can purchase cheese, bread and wine for a lakeside picnic. The lake has duck and geese. The kids love that.

As many others have said this is a great place for a picnic. The location is nicely rural, while being easy to access. This is not a place for fancy, boutique cheese, however. They have four main kinds of brie-type cheese then some variations on those. They also have lots of other food items to buy to round out a... More

Nothing fancy, but a nice location in an area of no other stopping points. I was looking for more american cheese like cheese curds. I enjoyed the drive from Petaluma to the coast.
