About

Mariposa Creamery is a micro-dairy at the historic Zane Grey Estate in the suburban neighborhood of Altadena, in the foothills north east of Los Angeles. We keep a small herd of mostly Nubian goats, milk them by hand, and make a variety of cultured milk products including cheeses.

Our cheeses are not for sale, but we’d love to teach you how to make your own dairy products from high-quality & cruelty-free milk you can buy at the store.¬†We would love to invite you to the farm for a private class.

We are also in the process of expanding our farm onto private land we purchased in the new San Gabriel Mountains National Monument. To learn more about this project, visit Angeles Crest Creamery.

The Zane Grey Estate is a private residence, so the Creamery is not open to the public. We do give tours both as part of our classes and for organized groups like local schools.

We have day jobs, own a restaurant in Claremont called The Press. One of us is an LA County Master Food Preserver. The other is a physicist.
