Our goats are some of the happiest on the Central Coast

As a farmstead creamery, we raise our goats on the farm and make cheese from their milk, which allows us to manage every aspect of our cheese production.

Our herd of 40 goats graze on three acres of open pasture and oak woodlands and are protected by our dedicated Anatolian Shepherds, Lily and Gus.

Our herd consists of all registered LaManchas, the only breed of goats developed in the United States, notable for their tiny ears. We begin breeding in the fall and the kids (babies!) arrive between February and April.

Goats for Sale

Occasionally we have does and kids available for sale. We wish we could keep everyone, but for various reasons including cost, room, staffing, etc., we just can't. Our goats come from strong milking families and are some of the sweetest, most gentle and affectionate we've ever met. They make great pets, milkers and grass trimmers. Interested in adding a goat to your family? Email our herd manager, Sophie, for details.

Meet the Stepladder Bucks

The bucks play an important role when it comes to breeding season on the Stepladder farm. We typically keep 1-2 bucks on the property full-time, and bring a few others on site during breeding season to keep the lineages fresh. See below for our most up to date roster of testosterone-fulled bucks!
