This past weekend, I took a drive down to Pescadero for an impromptu visit to Harley’s Farms Goat Dairy. If you haven’t been for a visit, you MUST go check it out. I’ve photographed a wedding in the hayloft a few years back, and have been wanting to go back ever since.
The owner, Dee Harley, is so welcoming and sweet! Born in Yorkshire, England, Dee Harley’s dream was to blend family, local farming and gourmet food. Dee started Harley Farms fourteen years ago with just six goats. She rebuilt a 1910 cow dairy farm that now houses the cheese making room and milking parlor – and scattered across her 9 acre farm roam 220 American Alpine goats who produce over 500 kids each Spring (definitely the time to visit!).
Harley Farms is open year-round for farm and dairy tours, cheese-making classes, and events in their fabulous restored hayloft. Visitors see a working farm, and watch the milk move from goat to dairy, from curd to cheese.
The Farm Shop, open daily from 11 to 5, features award-winning ricotta, feta, chevre and fromage blanc cheeses, a luxurious range of goat milk lotions and soaps, and many other delightful treasures. Check out my slide show of all the amazing cheeses and body products.
