Thank you for the kind review! We'd love to have you back in the Spring once we have babies to bottle feed! Glad you made it out- and grateful for your feedback:)

Coming here is a life altering experience. Being able to hang with the goats in this amazing place while eating cheese is perfection. I would definitely recommend for anyone who enjoys animals, cheese and beauty on the Central Coast.

Terrific tour of goat farm and cheese processing facility. Our tour guide ,Taylor, was extremely knowledgeable. We finished with a cheese tasting of the Stepladder products which are yummy and available for purchase. Would not advise for small children.
