Over the weekend we took a trip to Harley's Goat farm and dairy in Pescadero California. A working dairy where they make the most amazing goat cheese.
First we assembled with the rest of the tour group and were given a history of the farm and what we would be seeing. Then we were turned out into the pasture with the female goats. They are all friendly and curious and adorable. There was one goat that still had her baby with her. After spending time with the goats we were taken into the barn where the goats are fed then into the milking room.
We were then led into the cheese making room where they explained the process of making the goat cheese and the kids were able to make cheese. At the end we went into the gift shop where there were two tables of all the different types of goat cheese they produce that we were able to taste. Delicious!
