We operate a small family farm in Nicasio, California, breeding mini Nubian goats from strong milking lines. We also produce a small number of Pygora goats and Babydoll Southdown sheep each year. Our Maremma sheepdogs protect the goats, sheep, chickens, and ducks on our farm.
More than 25 years ago, sitting on cold, stone steps in Washington, D.C., we started planning a small farm. We fled city life for the mountains of New Mexico, but raising our wonderful sons left little time for livestock. Finally, settled in California and with our strong sons to help, we started our small herd of dairy goats at Stone Steps Farm.
Known as the “Marin County town that time forgot,” Nicasio is a tranquil, rural community just one hour north of San Francisco. It comprises about 25,000 acres in the exact center of Marin County. Nicasio is anchored by a town square with a post office, general store, volunteer fire department, church, historical society, and restaurant/live music venue. Since the town’s beginnings in the mid 1800s, much of the land has been used for grazing and other agricultural purposes.
