Meet The Creamery Owners

Michelle & Jack Rudolph

Jack first discovered his love for goats after visiting a goat dairy in Northern California with his sister in high school. Shortly thereafter, he began procuring fresh goat milk and making his own cheeses at home while working at a startup in Palo Alto. Quickly finding himself drawn to cheesemaking more than anything else, Jack decided to purchase his own goats and move to Stepladder Ranch to take over his grandfather’s ranch operations and build a creamery. Michelle's background is in event planning and wineries. She moved to the Central Coast to attend Cal Poly and never left. Jack and Michelle met during the inception phase of the creamery and have been managing the ranch together ever since.
