California Cheese Trail Collections
Originally known as The Sonoma Marin Cheese Trail, and updated to the California Cheese Trail. Created by Vivien Straus and run with brother Michael Straus and a project of the Marin Economic Forum, this is a map to meet the cheesemakers, go on farm tours, taste cheese, and tell you where artisan cheese can be found if you cannot visit the farm. In addition, cheese collections are available and shipped seasonally (December and Valentine’s Day).
Highly curated collections of farmstead cheeses and local delicacies, supporting California’s cheesemakers, farmers, and artisan producers, many who have struggled during the Covid-era economic downturn are available for purchase here.
Cheese Trail maps can be found at all the open-to-the-public cheese retail locations, including Cowgirl Creamery, Nicasio Valley Cheese Company and Marin French Cheese Company in Marin. The Cheese Trail Map is also available to be picked up at the Marin CVB's main office; please be sure to call and arrange a pickup before stopping by the office: 415-925-2060
