Picked up blue cheese and other cheeses for dinner party.

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.

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

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
