Our Location

The Creamery’s location, in the southwestern Sonoma; northwestern Marin county area, offers world-class opportunities for outdoor activities such as cycling, kayaking, and walking. The historic town of Valley Ford, located on Hwy 1, is an easy .4/mile walk from the studios. Valley Ford has a post office, bank, market, diner, restaurants, antique store, and a small hotel. The picturesque towns of Bodega, Freestone, and Occidental, Bodega Bay, Sebastopol, and Tomales are all about ten miles away. The larger cities of Santa Rosa and Petaluma are still only a half-hour’s drive away, and the Golden Gate Bridge to San Francisco can be reached with-in an hour.

The Valley Ford Creamery studio project offers a rare chance to participate in a working artist/professional community nestled in a gorgeous rural environment that is within easy reach of life’s more urban pleasures and practical necessities. This unspoiled pocket of Sonoma county is a paradise for a diverse mix of wildlife: deer, fox, marsh and migratory birds, butterflies, crickets, turtles, frogs and fish– just to name a few - as well as the resident sheep and cows grazing on the pastures of the surrounding ranches.
