Rinconada Dairy: Founded in 1999 with eight East Friesian ewes, one ram sired by a national champion and the dream of creating handcrafted sheep milk cheese. Over the years of careful tending, the flock has grown to 150 ewes and a herd of Nubian goats. “Because we care about nurturing the soil, the animals and our family, no herbicides, pesticides or artificial fertilizers are used on our pastures, and no hormones are given to our animals.” Every step in the process of breeding, lambing, feeding, milking, cheese making and affinage is hands on by Rinconada Dairy owners, Christine and Jim Maguire.

Central Coast Creamery: At Central Coast Creamery they are committed to using local California milk from animals not treated with hormones. All of their cheeses are made in small batches with an uncompromising attention to detail so that their cheeses consistently deliver an unparalleled tasting experience. Their mission is to deliver great cheese, to help with the movement to redefine the American palate, and to do this responsibly. The produce mixed milk, cow milk, goat milk and sheep milk cheeses.

Stepladder Creamery: Is a small farmstead creamery owned by cheese maker Jack Rudolph who also runs his 3rd generation family farm, Stepladder Ranch. This private tour is a wonderful way to get to know their friendly herd of LaMancha goats and tour their brand new creamery facility and milking parlor that were both built inside of the ranch's historic 100-year old barn.

FARMstead ED: Bringing folks together with locally grown & made via Ag Ed experiences, events and gatherings. FARMstead ED’s goal is to promote San Luis Obispo County FARMsteading skills and practices through educational experiences, events and gatherings at pop-up FARMsteading classrooms held at local farms, ranches and other agricultural related venues. The charm and intrigue comes from the opportunity for people to truly experience locally grown and made through a variety of different hands-on classes and events all over the county.
