Goat Farm on the Way to Sunset
Oct 2021 • Couples
This activity was part of a perfect day in Maui. We stopped here on our way to see sunset on Haleakala. We took the 3 o’clock tour. We were given a short introduction, fed the goats, and then sampled the cheeses and lilikoi cheesecake (these cost extra). Everything was delicious. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and clearly loved goats.

GOOD TIME
Sep 2021
We had booked a tour but then had it rained out that morning. Ironically, we went that afternoon and the sun came out and we still got to go on our tour. I don't think the visit would have been that much fun without the guided tour but we had fun feeding and meeting the goats and even milking the goats. It's also great to see upcountry Maui and make this one of your activities while up there. It seems like the goat cheese is priced at a real premium, even by Maui standards.

Goats and Cheese
Sep 2021
We really enjoyed meeting the goats! They are so gentle when you hand feed them snacks. Do not skip the cheese sampling. It's great cheese, so tasty!

A Great Time - No Kidding
Oct 2021 • Couples
I had to make a goat pun, hence the title of this review.

Heard about Surfing Goat Dairy from another couple on our Haleakala Sunrise tour. Glad we decided to check it out. Booked the Casual Tour and a cheese flight online.

We got to feed the goats, see where they are milked, and hear about how they are raised and how the cheese is made.

The flight was a sample of 6 kinds of chèvre (spreadable) with crackers. We also added on a piece of goat cheese cheesecake which was surprisingly delicious.

We ended up buying some chèvre, a jar of feta, and a half dozen goat cheese chocolates.

It was a nice way to spend part of the afternoon!

Even better than expected
Sep 2021 • Couples
It was a perfect short tour that provided a great overview of their dairy and its philosophy. Great owners and tour guides that do a wonderful job in farming with compassion. Animals are well cared for and the cheese is AMAZING! I didn't know I liked goat cheese until this tour. Highly recommend this fun and informative tour and definitely do the tasting afterwards. Nice to do something completely different and off the grid.

Great Cheese in a Relaxing Setting
Sep 2021
This is a fun place to visit, with surfboards an integral part of the farm's decor. We loved our short walking tour of the farm and dairy, finding it a nice way to learn more about goats and the production of goat cheese. After the tour, we enjoyed a flight of their cheeses, all of which were absolutely delicious. We took home frozen jars of two of the goat cheese spreads we'd tried and regretted we didn't have room in our luggage to take more. If you have the time, swing by for a tour, sample the cheese and enjoy a nice, relaxing bit of the countryside. We look forward to visiting again on our next vacation in Maui!

Get the cheesecake!
Sep 2021 • Couples
After spending many days swimming and snorkeling at the beautiful beaches, we decided to take in some of the sights up the mountains in Kula. Surfing Goats was one of our favorite destinations. We did the 1/2 hour tour which included petting and feeding the adorable goats, learning about the humane farming practices, and how the cheese is made. For $15 we shared a flight of various cheeses, which were excellent and for another $6 we split a piece of the most scrumptious cheesecake I’ve ever tasted in my life. Book online ahead of time as tours fill up fast and if you’re interested in a tasting of vodka and rum at the Ocean Vodka farm next door, book that for right after.

Unexpected Fun!

Surfing Goat Dairy was a highlight of our upcountry drive! We took the casual tour and got up close with the goats. The kids on the tour especially loved the experience! We enjoyed a tasting of delicious award winning cheeses. Check it out!

trip upcountry
Sep 2021
we were planning a visit to upcountry (Makawao) and decided to do this and the Vodka distillery for a couple of extras (since Makawao is small, and it is a drive!). This was fun and informative, the goats are cute and friendly (well, we had food LOL!). I recommend adding the "cheese flight", the cheese was yummy!

Such a Pleasant Visit!
Sep 2021
I've wanted to go here during previous trips to Maui, but this time, I made it there! It was totally worth it. Because of the pandemic, we booked a Daily Casual Tour and ended up with a private tour by Amber. She was awesome! She reminded me of teachers who love teaching, so they're never bored and are willing to share their considerable knowledge with you. We learned so much about goats--from mating rituals to social hierarchy. It was all fascinating to us! Oh, and yes, we got to feed a few of the goats!

I almost forgot! They have a small gift shop. I got two bars of lavender goat's milk soap--I collect lavender soap from all over the world--and chocolate lilikoi truffles. The former made my suitcase smell divine and the latter was delicious!
