Stepladder Ranch & Creamery is home to our dairy and creamery just off Highway 1 on the Central Coast of California. We make traditional, small-batch cheeses with milk from our LaMancha goats. During the goat milk off-season (November-March/April), we also make cow's milk cheeses from milk we source locally from the Dairy Program at Cal Poly.

Our goals remain to create world class products and to provide a positive and meaningful workplace for our staff as well as a healthy, sustainable environment for our animals.

The Farm

Stepladder Ranch was founded in 1871 and has been family-owned and operated for three generations.

Our Goats

As a farmstead creamery, we raise our goats on the farm and make cheese from their milk – allowing us to manage every aspect of our cheese production.

Our Cheese

Our delicious, mild and creamy fresh Chèvre is the ultimate representation of spring cheesemaking.
