We decided to visit the farm because it was listed as a good place to take young kids in the Maui Revealed book. However, if you aren't planning to take the tour (which we didn't since we knew our 3 yr old wouldn't tolerate it) there isn't much to see and do. Aside from the tour you can see (for... More

Surfing Goat Dairy is a nice stop to make, especially if you are also visiting Ocean Vodka Distillery just down the road. You can do a complimentary cheese tasting and see the main area for free--the tour isn't really worth $10 as you don't see much more than you already do from the Visitor area. They sell charcuterie and cheese... More

We did the $25 Grand Tour. Compared to other dairy farm tours or even farm tours we have done, this one was the best. It was so well organized and the people really seemed to know their areas of expertise. I loved how everybody actually got to milk the goats by hand, that was outstanding. And the farm itself is...

My daughter and I went to Surfing Goad Dairy Farm this summer. It was a very fun adventure. The staff are extremely friendly and informative. The tour is very interactive. We milked goats, learned about the farm, how cheese is made, and we tasted a large variety of cheeses (all of the cheese that they make in fact). It is... More

A must stop either on the way to the Volcano or returning. Goats are really fun, staff friendly and very imfornative, and samples of excellent Goat Cheese! No need to worry about carrying items back, as they will ship direct for you. Shipments arrive as promised and packed with extreme care. Truffles are to die for....If you love chocolate, you... More

Stopped by and took the "casual" tour. Got to feed alfalfa to the goats and take a cursory look at how they are milked and where the cheese is made. Tried a sample plate of six cheeses from soft to aged This really is the freshest, yummiest goat cheese you will every try. Because they pasteurize the milk immediately after... More

I recommend visiting the goat farm if you like goat cheese and would like a snack on your way up or down from Upcountry. We combined a stop here with a visit to the Ocean Vodka tour (next door) and visiting the farmers market up in Kula. I would try to combine the visit with a few other things. The... More

We (3 of us) did the Saturday grand dairy tour. Started off with a tour of the grounds, some history, and we feed and pet the younger goats. From there we were giving more information about the goats and were allowed to milk a goat. After milking we herded the goats with the assistance of their dog, Tortell, to their... More

Stopped by this place on our way to Haleakka and quickly wished we hadn't. My wife loves goats and I love goat cheese so it seemed like the perfect combo except...you had to pay to see their goats (even if you purchased and ate there - rip off much). Also, the counter staff was going on about the great deal... More
