Full Answer

Goat farms in California are located throughout the state with no central location. A few are located centrally in California on the coast, while some lie in the interior of the state. North Valley Farms Chevre Inc. is in north central California at Cottonwood in the North Valley just south of Shasta Lake. The furthest south is Drake Family Farms, just miles from the coast and directly east of Los Angeles.

Harley Farms and Redwood Hill Farm are in Pescadero and Sebastopol respectively, towns located in central California on the coast, just to the north and south of San Francisco. Nicolau Farms is in Modesto, the heart of California in the central valley. This farm produces up to 4,000 pounds of cheese per month, ranging from the classic Stanislaus capream to goat milk feta and quatro pepe capream, the latter of which is studded with peppercorns. Redwood Hill Farm produces artisan and certified organic cheeses made entirely from goat's milk. Drake Family Farm offers cheese, goat's milk and goat milk soap.
