Who would have guessed touring a goat farm would be such a great thing to do in Hawaii!! I was with my girlfriend and twin 9-year old boys and we decided to go to Surfing Goat on a whim. There's a very short, but fun tour of the goat farm...for a reasonable price. The boys got to feed the goats... More

My family was excited to pay a visit to Surfing Goat Dairy. When we arrived, we asked if the kids were going to have an opportunity to interact and milk the goats like the magazine ads said. They said no because it's a dry season but that they do something special for the kids instead. We have no idea what... More

Excellent hand-crafted cheese selection, with sampling and cheese plates to enjoy in the patio. Very good for families, too, with goats in pens all around the farm.

We visited the Surfing Goat Dairy during our last visit to Maui and we all had a wonderful time, my daughter was the one that enjoyed it the most. There is a tour of the facilities (for a fee) that allows you to get up and close to goats and you get to walk through the facilities, however there are... More

I have to say this was a let down for our family. We had read that we would be able to milk the goats, see how cheese is made and sample over 30 cheeses. When we got there we were told that it was the dry season so no milking of the goats, which was a let down but the... More

I may be biased considering I grew up around goats, but this was a real treat! We had so much fun feeding the kids some hay and watching their crazy personalities! Our tour guide was so friendly and willing to answer any questions we may have had. Cheese was phenomenal! We will be placing an order online here closer to... More

My husband and I went here while we were in Maui on vacation on our Upcountry day. It was awesome! We got to feed/pet goats, and learned a lot about how they make goat cheese. Our tour guide was really nice/fun and informative. We had a great time and bought some amazing goat cheese and chocolate goat cheese truffles that... More

In reality I haven't always enjoyed goat cheese, because I could smell it before it even got to my palette I learned this is probably because of what the goat is eating...this dairy is top notch Green Eco friendly and the goats eat very well...with this being said excellent quality cheese that I loved, I would go because it is...
