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

nothing to dislike. John and Joyce are great. You just have to come to appreciate the ranch. I am super impressed by the ranch everytime I visit. They really care about giving people a great time and the ranch shows it!!!

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

While taking the back roads to Sedona we discovered this little place. Near the adorable little village of Strawberry, the goat farm is step back to a simpler life. We spent just a half hour looking at the goats and sampling the cheese. Pepper-Lavender goat cheese, who knew it could be so delicious. We bought some goat cheese (highly recommended)... More

We stopped in on the way from the Grand Canyon to Phoenix and spent an hour or so playing with the baby goats. They are so adorable. We got to go into their pen and feed them. The Farm shop allows you to sample their tasty cheese. Bought some pumpkin goat yogurt and after an initial new taste, it was... More

Scenic drive up to Rim Country and then into beautiful Strawberry-Pine. The Farm's quaint and clean, with a small shop full of dairy (cheeses, ice creams, etc) all made w/ farm fresh supplies. The boys (4 & 6) had fun petting/seeing the animals, and the staff was friendly.

We stopped in at Fossil Creek Creamery and spent a few hours petting the goats and llamas. The goats are adorable, and each of us seemed to have a "buddy" goat that followed us around the enclosure. After petting the goats, we sampled some soft goat cheese (the dill one is excellent) and also bought some strawberry goat frozen yogurt.... More

What a great quiet place to visit. There is not much of a parking lot, but other than that it was a nice place to visit. Try to fudge and cheese that is made at the Ranch. We went for the Llama's and we could see them in the distance. One of the owners came out to greet us. What... More

We were visiting the Pine/Strawberry area for the first time and were looking for a way to spend a couple of hours in the afternoon. We stumbled upon the Fossil Creek Llama Ranch and really enjoyed our time there. It is really more of a working goat creamery. We hung out with the little goats for a while. They were... More

Don't trust google maps to get you there. It shows the place half mile ahead of where it actually is. We had a nice time at this ranch. They have good yogurt and cheese and other goat milk products (soap, lotion etc.). The yogurt was a little icy (ice crystals) but flavors were very good. We bought them mainly to... More
