Harley Farms is a great place to visit in Pescadero, Calif. Children and adults will enjoy the friendly alpine goats featured at the restored 1910 dairy. Harley Farms said it has 200 goats on nine acres of pasture in Pescadero.
"The farm grew from six pet goats to today's herd, with their delicious, critically acclaimed cheese," according to Harley Farms' Website. "In 2011 we bought neighboring fields, a historic barn, and a hidden orchard and overgrown garden which we are restoring gently."
The garden was lovely when my wife and I visited in 2010. If it's cheese you after, Harley Farms has many choices.
"The Harley Farms' chevre, fromage blanc, ricotta and feta cheeses have been consistent winners at the American Cheese Society awards, and hold two international World Cheese Show medals," according to Harley Farms.
"Harley Farms is open year-round for farm and dairy tours, retreats, and events in our atmospheric hayloft. Tour visitors see a working farm, and watch the milk move from goat to dairy, from curd to cheese.
"We are open Thursday through Monday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. most of the year. Our winter hours are Friday to Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., until kidding season begins in late February."
