Spring Tours for 2012 are scheduled!
Cost: $5.00 per person (Children under 5 are free)
Days: Sunday Afternoons
Come see where our cheese is made and meet the girls who provide your milk! You can pet the girls and their babies. You will receive a small bottle of milk to feed a baby goat. We encourage you to spend time walking with the big girls, and getting to know those who provide the milk for our cheeses and yogurts!
South Mountain Dairy is a working farm, and we only offer tours on a limited basis. We are a small operation, usually working from 5:00am to 9:00pm every day. Everyone is busy mucking barns, milking goats, and making cheese.
That is why we set aside a special time each spring to open the farm. That time will be during the month of April, Sunday afternoons, 1-4pm.
Use our Directions!
Every year we get calls from frustrated people who just KNEW their GPS would get them here.
Don't be tempted!! Use our directions! They are accurate, and they will get you here if you follow them.
The farm is located North of I40, between Sandia Park and Cedar Grove. For your convenience, the link on the right hand side of this page provides you with directions, and maps to the farm from both Albuquerque, and Santa Fe.
Donna, Marge and our employees will be on site to introduce you to the girls, explain how cheese is made, and show you the milking parlour. Cheese, Yogurt and Milk will be available to sample and purchase on the farm.
South Mountain Dairy is at an elevation of 7200 feet. The temperature is generally 10 degrees cooler than Albuquerque, and the wind is often blowing. We suggest you bring a jacket and wear sunscreen.
NO SANDALS or FLIP FLOPS!
Please keep in mind that this is a working farm and dress accordingly - wear clothes and tennis shoes that you can get a little dirty.
By the way, did we say do NOT wear sandals?
