Marin French Cheese Company is the single oldest continuously-operating cheese factory in the United States. Widely held to be the originator of California-made brie and camembert, Marin French got their start producing “Breakfast Cheese,” which was a fresh, rindless cheese sold to San Francisco saloons as an alternative to pickled eggs. They are known for their small batch, soft-ripened cheeses that are handmade with care using time-tested techniques that go back centuries. The addition of ingredients like mustard seeds, truffles, and jalapeños appeals to the adventurous tastes of the contemporary customer, but their foundation honors the work of those who came before us and will always remain rooted in tradition.
