Great cheese but it used to be more fun

We have been here 3 times over the years and the cheese is incredible. It just seemed in the past there was more interaction with the goats such as feeding them. Yes you get to do... read more

This is such a great time with the kids. Everyone is so nice and the goats are just beautiful. The tours are very nice, we've done the general tour as well as the night chores and both are great. The goat cheese is seriously the best I've ever had. Just a wonderful experience.

We have been here 3 times over the years and the cheese is incredible. It just seemed in the past there was more interaction with the goats such as feeding them. Yes you get to do that on the tour but it was blaring sun and over 90 degrees. The last thing we wanted to do was walk around. There... More

Mmmhh, it was OK. We stopped here on our way to Hana. Nothing to write home about. More for kids than adults.

My son loves goats, so naturally he really loved the tour. I think any child would enjoy feeding the goats, and seeing the baby goats. For an extra fee you can even learn to milk the goats. If you have kids, and you are looking for something to do that is not beach related, enjoy the drive to upcountry and... More

Skipped the tour and just tried a cheese plate. Really good stuff. 15-20 min drive from the airport. My suggestion - bring some vino to go w/ that cheese! Oh - and try the soap! it is good stuff

The kids loved feeding the goats. Our tour guide was nice and entertaining. It would have been nice to walk around the farm a bit more, see a goat get milked, see how they actually make the cheese, and had a little more of a cheese tasting including some crackers and drinks.

We really enjoyed our stop here. We took an informative tour, fed the goats, tasted a variety of cheeses, watched the goats get milked, and had some sandwiches and truffles to eat. Fun place!

While up in Kula we came here! It is a true goat farm with cute little goats to pet and a sandbox for little ones to play in. The grounds could be kept up better, not too much pretty landscape after coming from the lavender farm. Let's cut to the cheese! We tried the assorted flavor sand goat cheese with... More

We really enjoyed this tour! It doesn't take long and the guides are friendly and knowledgable. We had vegetarians with us and they really loved samplling all of the various goat cheeses. They have very cool t-shirts but the womens all run very small! Ask about the story of the Surfing Goat Name!

This was a fun place. We took a tour, taste delicious truffles and pet a few sweet goats. The staff was very knowledgeable and answered every question we asked!
