World renowned Blue Cheese and now they are making white Cheddar. I had never thought I would like or try please cheese until I stopped in because I got lost and they gave me a sample-I was Sold!

Been wanting to visit for years and never hit the right time, this time I finally got here. Did not take a tour but sampled a variety of cheeses. The saleslady was extremely helpful. This really is the best blue cheese I ever tasted. So glad I stopped.

I love Maytag Dairy's American made blue cheese. I buy the two pound wheel several times a year and never tire of it. Just the right bite, a creamy texture to die for, and it also crumbles. Reasonably priced, ships to the door, also reasonably priced. Forgo the Roqueforts and Danish blues, etc. etc. and buy American -Maytag is the... More

This had been on our bucket list for Iowa and we were happy to finally get it checked off our list. Being huge Maytag Blue Cheese fans it was great to taste other cheeses made at the farm. We liked them all but really enjoyed the 7 year Aged Cheddar Cheese and left with that as well as a wheel... More

Take time out of your day to stop by and visit. Well worth it. Also has a great variety of cheeses that are made right there. They will not disappoint.

A Quick stop turned into a social event with like minded cheeselovers, 2 hours later we were loaded down. Crumbles at the factory are a bargin, but the minute you say ship please they become regular price.

Stopped here and really enjoyed our tour and the samples. We are cheese lovers and especially love the Blue. The stop is worth it for the history lesson, but the samples are so good. The facility is immaculately clean. It is a short tour so you won't have to spend your whole day. A good place to stop and learn... More

Very cool way to spend an hour or so. This place knows how to treat guests. Upon arrival, we were greated kindly and watched a 10-15 minute video on the history of Maytag Dairy Farm. We then were escorted around the packing and shipping operation. Maytag's care and craftsmanship is exemplified even in the wrapping and packaging of each morsel... More

I met a woman on the airplane from ORD to PNS whose husband was a bleu cheese aficionado and she turned me on to Maytag. I ordered presents for our son and son-in-law and they received very good reviews. I like the service-and the presentation. The bleu cheese was EXCELLENT!

What a great place ! This is where the famous bleu cheese is made ! They have a greeting area with products that you can purchase. Take the time to view the movie that chronicles the history of the Maytag family (15 minutes). Then they will show you where they package the cheese. The cheese is aged down the road... More
