This is a nice place to stop and learn about goats and cheese. We enjoyed the flight of cheese with enough crackers to sample the varieties several times to discuss their pros and cons. Actually, we liked them all and purchases several for later snacking.

We have been here before so we skipped the tour and did a cheese flight instead. I love all of the cheeses we tasted, especially the ping pong balls. We bought cheese to enjoy at the condo during our stay.

Touring Maui's Upcountry gave us the opportunity to visit the Surfing Goat Dairy. The 20 minute tour for two persons was $25, including an extra charge to use a credit card. Our tour guide, while knowledgable, recited a memorized script without deviation. The chance to hand feed young goats was nothing special. The highlight was sampling four of the flavored... More

This was a nice stop for a snack and some play time for the kids. We skipped the tour based on the high price of about $15/pp. The flight of cheese seemed high as well, but it was quite good. Cheese this good should be served with something better than Townhouse crackers though.

We did a tour of the farm, and it was great! The tour was very informative and feeding the goats was adorable! We were also able to milk them, which was quite an experience! Definitely recommend!

On our frequent visits to Maui we usually make a trip to the Surfing Goat Dairy to stock up on our favorite cheese during our stay. This year we learned that the dairy has new owners and did not experience the same positive experience as in the past. In the past many different cheese flavored were offered from which to... More

We paid for the goat tour and realistically we could have just done that without paying. The $17 tour was to walk maybe 50 feet, feed the goats some hay (which there were a few little kids there so we really didn't get to do it), and barely milk one teet of a goat. The cheese itself is great and... More

It was quite pricey to walk over and feed the goats. (I'm sure the experience would be different for someone who has never done this before, but growing up in a farm-country, it was nothing new to me.) I was hoping we would get to see more of the milking/production; instead we swiftly passed by the machinery and were able... More

So, I opted to not go on the paid tour, but I still was able to see the baby goats and visit the gift shop! The staff is very knowledgeable about the goats and all the products ou can make with goats milk. I ended up buying 3 bars of soap and some truffles while my sister in law bought... More
