We were very disappointed in the tour. I'm not sure what they are charging for. I realize many people have not had experiences with farming and probably goats but I felt we were talked down to during the tour and when we asked pertinent questions about the operation the guide could not bring herself to tell us that some of...

We had a great time at Surfing Goats Dairy Farm. Their menu items are reasonably priced and pretty good. We had some sandwiches as we waited for our tour to start. The lemonade is delicious! We did the milking tour and enjoyed it a lot. The staff seems to enjoy what they do so they were very friendly and willing... More

Really not worth the price for the tour. The cheese itself is good. Purchased a flight of cheese and really enjoyed it. The staff is there anyway so it isn't like they have to pay extra for docents and the like. What would be great is if the price of the tour was then credited towards purchases of cheese. I... More

This was a really neat stop. Not much of a tour but it was still cute. Goat cheese to sample and tasty. Cute gift shop. Worth the stop even with a $12 pp fee for a very short tour. Family owned business that was interesting to hear about

Don't visit this goat dairy even if your life depended upon it. We called the dairy to ask if they were open and they promised us that they would be open to come and visit. However, when we reached (after a 1 and half hour drive) the dairy staff turned us away, closing the gate and saying the weather was... More

Surfing Goat is a very low-key but charming place, and worth a short stop. We enjoyed seeing the goats (including newborns), and seeing the informal exhibits. I can't see the merit in taking the offered longer tour, as most of what you're likely to enjoy seeing is readily seeable anyway. But a short stop is just fine. There is a... More

If your schedule allows, I heartily recommend the 3:30 p.m. Evening Chores and Milking Tour! We fed young goats, hand milked others and learned about how they are cared for. We finished the tour with a tasting of the fabulous cheeses they make on site. We went home with Lilikoi Quark, their "Udderly Delicious" plain chevre and a beautiful vanilla... More

Our tour was given by a gal who couldn't of cared less if we were there or not. It was scripted, and jokes in the script weren't delivered well by the guide. This is the tour: fed some baby goats, wander over the milking station, look at said milking station, then try some cheeses. Unimpressive. Save your mulla and do... More

We were driving back to our condo from the winery as we came across the Surfing Goat Dairy so we decided to check it out. Considering the entrance into the place we thought it was really going to be something but we were very disappointed. We had read that they sample various goat cheeses and in fact they do but...
