About the Program

Did you know it roughly costs $3-4/day per goat just for feed such as hay, grain, and herbal cookies? This doesn't include staff labor cost, equipment, chemicals for cleaning, or those “what if” moments that occasionally happen on a farm in the middle of the hills. And we have a herd of over 50...

The Sponsor a Goat program is a way for people to directly support our herd of goats and help offset some of the expenses with having so many animals on the property. Watch this video with Stepladder Creamery co-owner, Michelle, as she talks more about the newly revamped Sponsor a Goat program and what it means to be a Sponsor.

A Few Things to know

*DISCLOSURE: By sponsoring a goat, please be aware that there are circumstances out of our control which could result in injury, illness, rehoming or death of an animal. If this occurs, we will communicate with you openly and reassign you a healthy, producing goat from our herd. We've done our best to select a handful of does that we think will be with us for years to come.

These are symbolic sponsorships and do not require any physical or in-person requirements of the purchaser. 

Although you will be sponsoring your specific doe, a portion of the purchase goes toward supporting the entire herd of 50+ goats plus our bucks.

Have more questions? Email us and we'll be happy to tell you more about the program and any other questions you have!
