About Stepladder Ranch & Creamery
Stepladder Creamery is a small farmstead goat dairy and creamery just north of Cambria, California. We create small-scale, handmade cheeses with milk from our pasture-raised herd of LaMancha goats. We also make artisan cow's milk cheeses using milk exclusively from the Cal Poly dairy program. Join us for a tour and cheese tasting on our private ranch- it's a lovely escape! You'll get to play with goats, learn about our cheesemaking and taste our cheeses. We even have a Cheese Club you can join! See you on the farm:) All visits must be booked online in advance. We are not open to the public without tour reservations and we do not allow dogs. Thanks for your understanding!

The tour of Stepladder Ranch & Creamery was the highlight of our three day visit to the Cambria area. Of course getting a chance to play with the baby goats was fabulous but the cheese tasting was equally as fun. Thanks to our tour guide...More

The ranch is beautiful and the goats are too adorable my kids loved holding and petting the goats. I only give it four stars as I think the cheese choices are poor and mostly cow milk.
