A Visit to and Tour of Stepladder Creamery

A Visit and Tour of Stepladder Creamery. One of our most popular events last year. Drive up San Simeon Creek Road and eventually you arrive at a small farmstead artisan goat dairy called Stepladder Creamery, which specializes in traditionally crafted small-scale handmade cheeses. You will tour the goat farm, meet up with some of the goats, see barn and creamery and taste the cheeses.

Details on location will be sent to guests in advance and after ticket purchase. Guests will meet outside the Creamery on San Simeon-Monterey Creek Rd north of Cambria ten minutes in advance of the 11 a.m. tour. A representative of the Creamery will then guide the guests onto the property for the tour. This is a walking tour of a working goat farm. Guests should dress accordingly.
