Clothbound Goat Cheddar
We're excited to announce the limited release of Clothbound Goat Cheddar. Stepladder Creamery recently won gold for this cheese in the Farmstead Goat's Milk category at the 2022 American Cheese Society awards.
Clothbound Goat Cheddar is made in the traditional English cheddar style with 100% farmstead goat's milk. We mill and salt the curds before binding the cheese in muslin and aging it to perfection. This batch was only aged for half the time, about 6 months and is tasting beautifully!
We love the tart acidity and herbaceous notes of the goat's milk, and the sweet milk aroma. It pairs great with dry cider, hoppy beers, and acidic white wines.
Only available for a limited time, ~8oz size online.

Order Cancellation + Refund + Return Policy
Due to the perishable nature of our products, we do not accept returns.
If you received an expired or damaged product, please email our team with photos within 5 business days of the delivery date or date of purchase from a farmer's market/retailer.
Please note, the best-by date provided on our products is for unopened/sealed products. Products that have been opened will have a shorter shelf life than the best-by date. We highly recommend consuming our products within one week (especially soft cheeses and triple crèmes) upon opening for freshness and less likely for mold or products to spoil.
All online orders ship Mondays. Online orders can be cancelled for a full refund by Monday at 8am PST. We begin our shipping process at 9am PST and can’t process refunds after the shipping process has begun.
It is our customer's responsibility to double-check shipping and billing addresses added to online orders. Orders shipped with incorrect addresses are not eligible for reshipment or refunds. Please double check you input the correct shipping and billing addresses for orders.
Email addresses added to online orders will receive shipping/tracking emails from us when the label is created; when the shipment is out for delivery and finally when the shipment has been delivered. If the order is a gift, we highly recommend letting the intended know to expect a delivery on the delivery date. If someone isn’t home to receive the shipment/sitting outside for several hours, we are unable to send a new shipment.
If you believe you have received an incorrect order or have an issue with your order, email us at email@example.com.
Refrigerate Cheese Upon Arrival
As a friendly reminder, cheese is perishable. We do our best to pack each shipment with care and amble ice packs, but please try to refrigerate your cheese as soon as your shipment is delivered. Cheese should be stored in a standard refrigerator or alternative cool storage. Cheese can be served at room temperature for optimum flavor and texture, but then put back in the fridge for storage.
Heat Advisory (Summer Months)
During the summer months, extremely hot temperatures are causing delays in shipping and issues with our products, something we are unable to control. Here are recommendations for hot zone shipping when ordering our cheese online.
Option 1: Order your cheese online but ask us to hold shipping until these temps cool down a bit. Just remember that some cheeses like Chevre, Big Sur and Rocky Butte are seasonal and won't be available if put on hold past their season.
Option 2: Although we offer free ground shipping with UPS on orders over $65 in CA, AZ, NV, OR, WA, UT and ID, we suggest paying for overnight/air shipping to ensure the quality of your order. We understand it's expensive, but we are not able to fully guarantee your order won't arrive melty with the normal 2-3 day ground shipping in these high heats.
If you have other ideas or suggestions, please let us know. Thanks for your continued support!
