This is a nice little drive off the interstate through farmland and cornfields. You will enter the visitors center which is also the corporate office. The front has a nice little selection of their cheeses for sale as well as a nice collection of recipes. We saw a short video about he Maytag family and the progression of the business... More

My fiancée and I stopped here in the hope of a tour on a Saturday afternoon. We got inside and was offered samples as the video wasn't available. We got to try Edam, smoked Swiss, havarti, 7 year aged cheddar which was amazing. We headed to watch to 10 minute video which was interesting but definitely needs an update. After... More

We enjoyed watching the video that gave the history of the farm. But the tour was a big advertisement for blue cheese and I wish we could have seen more of the process.

This is a nice place to visit with kids, they learn how the cheese is made. Their cheese is great, blue cheese is the best! Highly recommend checking this out!

Love Maytag blue cheese and the other cheeses available. Worth the trip to the farm and show room, right off interstate 80 north of Newton, Iowa..

If you like Blue cheese this is definitely the place. Great cows, Great people that work very hard to make this a quality product. If you can't visit order some by mail. I have mailed some as gifts all over the USA. The Havarti Cheese is smooth and creamy if you are not a Blue Cheese fan.

Had read a review on this cheese-making factory so we made a stop. Like other places we visited in Iowa we were warmly welcomed even though it was late in the day when we stopped. They have a video that introduces you to their processes and then a cheese tasting that was wonderful. Well worth visiting.

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
