Family Travel In Half Moon Bay: Activities

Our first day in Half Moon Bay, we had the pleasure of taking a drive down the iconic Pacific Coast Highway 1 a few miles to Pescadero to visit Harley Farms Goat Dairy.  

My son was on cloud nine running through the field full of goats, stopping to say hello and pet each and every one. 

We happened to visit when all of the goats were pregnant and about to have their kids (they have since started to have them and you can even check them out here!) so we were surrounded by swollen, very pregnant goats! We were then walked through the milking section,

onto the cheese making room where we watched our tour guide construct a small wheel of goat cheese covered with edible flowers to make what they call their “Monet Cheese”.

At the end of our tour, we had the chance to taste that cheese, as well as all of the cheeses they make there at Harley Farms.

We also stopped by Lemos Farm! taking us around the farm and through a little mini town of funny characters. Once we got off, we went straight for the Pony Ride.

My son was a little worried about it, but the two of us walked around with his pony, and he seemed to be happy about it by the end.

We loved the petting zoo, jump houses and the dig zone tractor, which lets your child actually operate a tractor to pick up rocks and move them! We loved every moment and the cowboys there on the farm were wonderful.
