Was in the area visiting the Iowa Speedway and decided to visit the dairy as it is close by. This is in a office setting with a small retail outlet to sell their Blue cheese and several other varieties. They were very friendly and helpful sampling the different cheeses. Even provided ice packs to place with our cheese as we... More

This is really a retail outlet. The store opens into the company office and people are at their desks as you shop the small coolers of cheese. Make no mistake though, the cheese is fantastic. This is just not much of a destination. The tour is a short video and wrapping of cheese. A missed opportunity. With more effort, this... More

We stop at the Maytag Dairy Farm anytime we are anywhere near Newton. Love their blue cheese..............better than any I've ever tasted. Blue cheese is made right there.

No cows, 2 people wrapping cheese, and a 1970's Maytag video was the gist of our "tour." We did however get to taste many samples of cheese and pick pop corn for free!

Whenever traveling on I-80 in Iowa, this is a must stop for the best blue cheese in America. We also enjoy their smoked Swiss and their spreadable crock Cheddar.

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!
