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.

The people at Maytag Dairy Farm were so nice to talk to and they gave us samples of cheese to try. Of course, we had to purchase cheese to take home. I have to say that coming from Vermont, we are very fussy about cheese. I loved the cheddar spread and made sure that I got some to bring home... More

We have lived in Newton for nearly thirteen years, and the Dairy Farm is a regular stop for us. Part of that is because we know some of the people who work there, but most of it is because we keep showing guests this gem of the prairie. Don't confuse the Dairy Farm with the now defunct Maytag Corporation (appliances... More

We stopped on a Saturday morning and received a very pleasant welcome from one of the 3 or 4 people working there. After watching a short (~10 minute) video, we got a tour of their facility. Although the tour only consisted of watching a person INDIVIDUALLY wrap each small wedge of their famous Blue Cheese, we did get a great... More
