As a farmstead creamery, we raise our goats on the farm and make cheese from their milk, which allows us to manage every aspect of our cheese production.
Our herd of 70 goats graze on three acres of open pasture and oak woodlands and are protected by our dedicated Anatolian Shepherds, Lily and Gus.
Our herd consists of all registered LaManchas, the only breed of goats developed in the United States, notable for their tiny ears. We begin breeding in the fall and the kids (babies!) arrive between February and April.
Meet the Stepladder Bucks
The bucks play an important role when it comes to breeding season on the Stepladder farm. We typically keep 1-2 bucks on the property full-time, and bring a few others on site during breeding season to keep the lineages fresh. See below for our most up to date roster of testosterone-fulled bucks!
