Jumpin' Good Goat Dairy is a small family goat dairy and creamery that proudly produces pure, all-natural small-batch artisan goat cheese. Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains we do our very best to make sure our goats are happy and healthy, because the happier the goat, the tastier our cheese. Besides the dairy and creamery our farm houses our country store, here we invite visitors to sample not only our seasonal offerings of cheese but also other yummy goods produce right here in Chaffee County! Guests may also visit the store to sign up for one of our guided Farm and Milking tours. Offered year round our Farm tour is at 11:30am on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Our herd is seasonal so that means we only milk from early spring to late summer, therefore our Milking tours are only available from late March to late September at 3:00pm Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Because we live in the unpredictable Rockies we will occasionally cancel tours due to inclement weather.

What Fun!

We arrived while there were not many customers there. Having the staff to ourselves was great. We learned a lot and enjoyed the sample. Of course, we bought the cheese.

Love this place. My son is a white water rafting guide near here and we visit every time we are in town. The people are very friendly and happy to show us around. The cheese and local goods are exceptional.

Stopped by one Saturday. Got lots of free samples plus a really interesting tour. Cheese here is delicious. Always try to visit the store when we're in the area. Love the goats!

Came down for my birthday weekend (my wife and I are both animal lovers and cheese fans), and we couldn't have imagined a better time. We did the tour - our guide, Pat, was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful - and we got to see the goats (a lot of goats!), the cellar, and the cheese-making operations. The goats are very... More

We missed the tour, but were greeted by a friendly employee as soon as we pulled up in front of the little store. She pointed us to all the samples of their fresh goat cheese. We tasted a half dozen or so, picked our favorites and purchased a little cheese and a sleeve of crackers. The employee was very kind,... More

Neat little place in Buena Vista where farm to table is happening every day. Took a campy tour of the goat cheese making process, got to feed and pet the baby goats with my daughter, and then you can taste all of the cheese! Fun, free stop on our mountain vacation.

Great little shop selling really good cheese. Petted the goats. A nice stop on our trip. We had a chance to try lots of different cheeses and choose a few to take back to the condo. The goat Blue Cheese went great with our grilled steaks.

If your kids love petting zoos, then this is the family excursion for you. My teenagers loved pettting the goats and sheep. They would have gladly fed hay to the goats for hours and they loved being in the enclosed area where the baby goats jumped on them and they were able to see them being fed with a "surrogate...
