Whether you need skin softening goats’ milk soaps and lotions, fresh goat cheese or you want to learn about the cheese-making process, make sure to stop by.

For dessert, or because you love pie, drive up to Pie Ranch, where this farm produces all of its own ingredients to make their famous pies. Their farm stand offers jams, pancake mix and an assortment of their fresh grown fruits and veggies.
