Organic Cheese Tour

Tickets are almost sold out. If you can't buy multiple tickets, additional spaces are likely to become available on Thursday or Friday.

Learn about the craft of local organic cheese making while touring in a comfortable bio-diesel bus through the countryside of Marin and Sonoma counties. Visit goat, cow and sheep dairies and explore barns, milking parlors and cheese-making facilities, while engaging in dialogue with farmers and cheese makers. There are opportunities to taste and purchase cheese, of course! We'll visit Achadinha Cheese, Spring Hill Cheese Company and Nicasio Valley Cheese. Sit back, relax and let us do the driving as you enjoy the scenery and gain a new appreciation for places in our own backyard. A healthy organic picnic lunch is included.
