California Cheese Experience Bundle

The California Cheese Bundle emerges as an exquisite collection, tailored for joyful gatherings or as an esteemed gift to a friend or a connoisseur with a robust appreciation for fine cheeses. What sets California cheese apart is its unparalleled connection to the local environment—the Pacific Ocean's cool breezes, the fertile soils of the wine country, and the distinctive terroir all contribute to the singular quality and flavor of the cheese.

Each Cheese is Uniquely Californian:  Handpicked by our master cheesemakers, this collection unites the best of both hard and soft cheeses, meticulously crafted from the purest cow's and goat's milk, or a unique blend of the two. This assortment is thoughtfully designed to offer a farm-to-table experience that is distinctly Californian, capturing the fresh, unparalleled flavors that only this region can provide, and is sure to captivate any palate.
Four Award-Winning Cheeses Included:  Within this distinguished selection lies four honored cheeses, each a recipient of accolades from the revered American Cheese Society and the California State Fair. This assortment is not just a bundle; it's a journey through the artistry and heritage of California’s cheese-making excellence.

This bundle comfortably serves 6-8+ people.

Stepladder Creamery isn't simply another cheese company—it represents the heartfelt journey of Jack and Michelle Rudolph, who took a huge risk to transition from careers in tech and event planning to pursue a love of cheesemaking that began in the confines of Jack’s apartment.

Sustainable from Start to End

STEPLADDER CREAMERY

Being a sustainable ranch and creamery is non-negotiable for us. We love where we live and work, and want to keep it just as beautiful as when we got here.

How do we stay sustainable?

Solar-Power

A 50KW solar array on the farm produces roughly 90 percent of the energy we use

Water Catchments

We rely on spring water and a large rain catchment refreshed by the annual rain as our main source

Circular Waste-Reduction

We utilize the manure from the goats to fertilize our orchards, and free-roaming Stepladder piggies receive the spent whey from the creamery and get to eat any unsellable harvested fruit and vegetable.

The Happiest Goats in the USA

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 the Stepladder cheese production.

With every passing season, our herd has grown, as has the variety of both goat and cow’s milk cheeses we now produce in our creamery.


Our herd of 40 goats consists of registered LaManchas (the only breed of goats developed in the United States), and they happily graze on three acres of open pasture!
