Worth a short stop to stretch your legs. Unfortunately, the male goats were in for breeding, and the smell....pretty awful! Spring and summer will be wonderful to see all the baby goats.

This is a great stop outside Strawberry on Fossil Creek Rd. The creamery makes fudge, cheese, soap, and lotion from the goats' milk. You can visit with and feed the goats. Very friendly staff.

Approximately 1hour and 35 minute hike up from the water fall to the strawberry dead end road or road closer sign at a very steady pace. The hike down is easy and takes approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes again at a very steady pace adding slight jog. The hike could be very discouraging and could be overwhelming at times... More

It was a quick 30 minute stop at this ranch. John was there to greet us. He is very knowledgeable and shared information about goat milk and the great Strawberry weather. We sampled some goat milk cheese and bought fudge, both were delicious. We missed the guided tour of the ranch and wish to visit the ranch again.

Fun place to watch the goats frolic, especially in the spring. The grand kids love the babies. Goat milk fudge is excellent!

after reading the reviews about John and Joyce the owners, I thought it would be fun to visit the ranch. Instead, a worker was there and I was disappointed to say the least. After paying the small fee, we just wandered about which we could have done on our own. Afterwards we left without buying any cheese because we had... More

John and Joyce are some of the most wonderful people I have met. They love their animals and they love what they do. It shows EVERYWHERE in this delightful place. Adults can sit on the porch while the kids enjoy the animals. The only place in the world I know of that has lavender black pepper goat cheese (my personal... More

My husband and I did an hour hike with the llamas (I am pregnant so I couldn't do the half day hike). It was so fun! It ended up being just us with Joyce (she's the owner) and our llamas. The hikes start in the morning and they take you through parts of Tonto National Forest. It is not a... More
