Set out your happy hour spread and pull up a chair for a chat with San Luis Obispo County cheesemaker Jack Rudolph of Stepladder Creamery. It’s part of Meet the Maker, the California Artisan Cheese Guild’s educational series, where cheese enthusiasts, industry members, and food lovers get to meet the artisan producers who make our California cheese community so special.

Founded in 1870 as a cattle ranch, Stepladder became part of the Harmony Valley Creamery Association, and to this day, most of their 750-acre property is still free range grazing land.
