'Friends & Family' Tour

This tour is less structured and focuses on goat play time, farm happenings, and of course, a seasonal cheese and fruit tasting.

Each tour will be slightly different focusing on the varied daily happenings on the farm, and will be more catered to the seasonality of our daily farm life. All tours will be given by co-owner Michelle. 

Tour days are weekdays on Mondays and Tuesdays at 10:30am and we will open up a 1:30pm tour as the first one fills up. We're able to accommodate groups up to 20 guests.

Although our regular tour days are weekdays on Mondays and Tuesdays, we will occasionally open up additional days as our availability allows for groups of 12+. Don't see a date that works? Send us an email and we'll do our best to accommodate!

Interested in a Friends and Family tour? Please email Michelle@stepladdercreamery.com for more information.

Creamery Tours FAQs

How do you book a tour?

Tours can be purchased on our website using a valid credit card. If tours are sold out, you can be added to a waitlist via Tock and be notified about openings and future releases.

Tours are NOT open to the public without a reservation. We do not accept walk-ins.  

What’s included in the tour?

Ticket price includes access to the Stepladder Ranch and Creamery property; interactions with the goats/viewing of the goat herd’s various pastures; Q&A/history to learn more about how we make the cheese; tasting of 3-4 goat’s and cow’s milk cheeses and endless selfie and photo opps.

Please note that tours do not include physical access inside the creamery. This is a clean space in which our team is required to wear specific clothing and attire for cheesemaking. We have several viewing points along the tour for viewing inside the creamery. Our tour guides also provide a detailed overview of our cheesemaking process and can answer any questions.

How early should I arrive for my tour?

We will come to the front gate to greet guests prior to each tour. Please wait in your car and follow us through the gate, up the narrow driveway to the designated parking area. Tours last about 1.5-2 hours and we require some break time and additional set up time between the two sessions.

What do I bring on the tour?

This is a working farm/ranch - clothes and shoes have the possibility of getting dirty. We require wearing closed toe shoes for lots of walking. Depending on the time of year it can be really hot in the summer (70-80+ degrees) and cold in the winter (45-65 degrees). Wear/bring layers including jackets, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, water bottles, etc. 

How are your tours for people with limited mobility?

Our farm is mostly on uneven terrain, so it can be a bit challenging to accommodate guests with limited mobility, though we will do our best to create a special experience for all guests on our farm.  Please get in touch for more details on navigating the tour with any special needs or accommodations.

Are animals, including service animals, allowed?

NO DOGS ALLOWED - NO EXCEPTIONS. Pets of any kind are not permitted on property. Lily and Gus, our herd protector dogs are trained to ward off intruding critters, which includes unfamiliar domesticated pets. If you bring a pet with you we will ask you to leave.

Refunds & cancellations

No refunds or cancellations. Reservations can be transferred, but we need at least 24 hours notice.

Tour start times are at exactly 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Guests can come and leave within your 2-hour tour window. If you show up late for your tour, we will not extend your time. 

All questions/changes to your tour must be handled at least 24 hours prior to your tour. Our property doesn’t have great cell service from Cambria to the farm, so everything must be handled in advance. 

Costs for children

Kids pay full price if they can walk or eat cheese. 

Do you offer private or group tours?

Yes, we are open to private group tours for groups of 12+ people. Email us if you are interested in booking a private group tour and we will make sure it's a good fit for our team and schedule.
