While we didn't have any children with us, this would be an excellent place to visit with kids. We tried their truffles and cheese and the cheeses had a "goat" flavor. No, the taste was not on our hands, as we did not pet the...More

My whole family enjoyed the visit to the Surfing Goat Dairy! Sweet goats and a fun tour! Plus, a sampling of goat cheese at the end. We did the shorter tour and it was a perfect amount of time. The gift shop had a great...More

This was our second time here and we really enjoy. Can never get enough of the adorable baby goats. So cute! We have done the grand dairy time both times because the tasting is so generous. You’ll want to make sure you don’t have lunch...More

Oh, Surfing Goat Dairy was cute enough, and kids might enjoy the goats. But at 12 bucks, the tour was a very poor value: short; not much information. The minuscule samples were OK...but minuscule. Wouldn’t return.

I was on a private tour with four other people. Our last stop was at Surfing Goat Dairy. There were no tour busses, and I think we were in between feedings, so we were able to meander around at our own pace. We got a...More

Thank you for your concern over our little goat. He didn't become anyone's dinner. We checked him out, put some rub on him and he was ready to return to play with his friends before the end of the day. As we are Certified Humane,...More

When we were there it was pouring rain so I don’t have an complete answer. I would choose daytime, all goats were awake and alert. Enjoy!

Yes there is a a fee for the tours. You do not have to take the tour(s). You see the goats as you drive up to the main building. You can also feed and pet the baby goats. Hope this helps.
