What a wonderful little farm with goats and goats and goats. The cheeses with a variety of differnt mixes, i.e., rasberries, walnuts, raisins, etc. and are fantastic. But the cheesecake is out of this world! It's a colorful drive up to Kula and great little outing to get away from the hustle and bustle of tourist.

We shared a mixed cheese plate. Delicious! The mango chevre was the best. And the truffles... mmm. We did not do the tour, but we did see adorable goat kids. The bathroom was clean and had farmmade goat's milk soap in it. Overall, adorable!

There are so many lovely places to tour and eat on Maui and this is not one of them. The cheese was nasty, dirty facility and the tour was not worth $12. If you care about animal rights as I do-you will be offended by the way they take the baby goats way from their mothers at birth. I would... More

As I see that you deleted your previous review after our response was posted, I will reiterate was our original response to your claims that we did not treat our animals appropriately: 1. We have a vet who comes once a month to check on the wellbeing and health of all the animals. 2. Goats, as are humans, born with... More

At $12 per adult, $8 per child ($40 for this family of 4), we expected a little more interaction with the goats from the tour. The goat cheese and chocolates were good, but not extraordinary. The lunch items appear well priced, so may be a good lunch place if you are in the area. We may be a little biased... More

A nicely run place where your kids can feed and pet some goats in a very relaxed atmosphere. Enjoyable for all. They also make a variety of cheeses you can sample as part of the tour. People offended by the whole concept of breeding livestock should probably stay away; others will see that they have made an effort to treat... More

Its off the beaten track and pleasantly tucked away in some Maui canyon, but what a GREAT attraction. It was/is a working farm and staff was very friendly. My family got a huge kick out of all the baby-goats. Take the tour,its worth it. :)

We went on the "Grand Dairy Tour" it was two hours long and we got to see the farm, goats, meet lots of the workers/volunteers, feed the goats, heard the goats, hear about the milk and cheese process, and walk around outdoors with the goats. At the end we had a cheese feast! Seriously go hungry if you like goat... More

This is another one I can't wait to read reviews that rate this as Terrible. What's not to like? Adorable goats on a certified humane farm and you get to sample goat cheese that is sought after by high-end Maui restaurants. Bonus - the tour is informative and made fun by the guide.

Whether you are a goat lover, a lover of goat products, or a parent with children I would love to pet small goats this is great place to go. Try the varied flavored truffles in the goat cheese in any favor and you will be delighted. It is very pricey but the quality is very good.

This place is out of the way, no signage.. and must have too much business. We made a dash there close to 5 pm and had someone run to the car to tell us they were closed or pretty much "Go Away"...
