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

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
