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

After living where we do, for 4 years now, and being in Newton atleast once a week, my husband and I had never taken the time to check out the Maytag Dairy! Finally, on Friday, August 1, we decided "we were going" - and what a great visit we had in the visitor center/showroom! We were met by a very... More

It was a beautiful day. The corn looked spectacular and the blue cheese was delicious. While they distribute other cheeses, the only product they make is the Maytag Bleu Cheese, and it was nice the see the original farm just down the road We bought a 2# Wheel

If you love blue cheese, traveling to Newton, Iowa and out to the Maytag Dairy is a must. Maytag Dairy is the home of the world famous Maytag blue cheese. This is the best cheese and the tour is very interesting. Getting to taste a variety of products is wonderful and of course, purchasing some of the blue cheese. It... More

But this really isn't a great attraction. It's not worth the drive off 80. The people are nice but there's not much to see.
