The goats- adorable! Able to sample a variety of goat cheeses made on premises. Have a small menu. Believe there are "tours" which explain the milking process.

The spot was one of the highlights of our third Maui visit. We had the honour of meeting two, 15 minute old kids at the beginning of our tour that was really informative. The gift shop was super with a wide variety of prices to fit anyone's budget. You HAVE to try the hand-made truffles, lilikoi being my favourite. We... More

A must see when travelling to upcountry on Maui. You can feed the goats during a tour of the farm. You also can have a lunch of a variety of cheese samples in a pleasant setting while viewing goats and being visited by the local farm cats.

Although kids (I can't help the pun here) will love this place, it's also a great stop on any Upcountry trip. Several delicious varieties of goat cheese are available to sample. We selected three - which came in small souffle cups, and purchased a sleeve of crackers. We relaxed at the picnic table enjoying the flavors while watching a slew... More

The cheeses are great, the tour was short but informative. This stop can be a little pricy for what you get but if you can arrange to have a picnic here with a cheese plate it can be worth it.

Stopped here and a couple other places up county and were very impressed. The guide on the tour was very good and knowledgeable. Got to see baby goats up close, free cheese samples and cute gift shop. The truffles are amazing.

Terrible customer service. "Tour" lasted 5 minutes and a total rip off we asked ahead of time if kids got to interact with the goats and the only thing they were allowed to do was feed a small amount of hay to a few goats through a fence. For $10 a person definitely not worth it. The "guides" kind of... More

It was a nice drive out to this place, but when we got there, there wasn't a whole lot going on. They only do a couple of tours a day, where they show you how they milk the goats. The prices on their things was a bit on the high side, but then again, it's a tourist trap! Everyone was... More

Our family did this coming down from the volcano, and it was great! Their whole farm is interesting to look at. The tour was great, and an opportunity to milk a goat really crowned it. So many interesting goat cheese products, such as chocolate, ice cream, cheese, and even soap. Have never tried goat cheese? At the end of the... More
