We stopped on our way to Oceon Vodka, but the goat farm would be great for younger kids. You can buy a goat cheese sampler, which we all enjoyed.

We took the casual tour and thought it was fun & interesting. The goats are so stinking cute! None of us like goat cheese, but it was neat to try the flavors. I ended up liking their "quark", which is more like greek yogurt. I appreciated their eco-conciousness as well.

Truth: my oldest daughter had this on HER list of "must do's" so we "did it." I felt it was unique, overpriced, kind of a "gotcha" place and we didn't do the tour because it was too pricey. I do wish they would have had more to do other than an hour long tour. The cheese samples were kind of... More

I am sure that this can be a wonderful experience if you arrive at the proper time. We didn't. Tours happen throughout the day at appointed times and prices vary. We arrived between tours and only the final, most expensive, tour remained. But, it wasn't for another 45 minutes and there was nothing to do. It was hot!

If you are visiting Kula, or passing thru, stop by at Surfing Goat Dairy. Not only do they have great cheese, it's a nice way to sample it in Hawaii. A great place to buy cheese and take it with you for a picnic.

Located in the upcountry area of Maui, this Goat farm is a unique location but priced high for a family looking for an afternoon activity. The short tour is somewhat expensive considering what is included, a brief review of the goat feeding area and milking facilities. It was interesting to stop in and see on our way to Makawao or...

Surfing Goat Dairy is a lot of fun. They have all diffent kinds of cheeses and spreads that they make from goats milk. The best is their goats milk ice cream. They have a petting area for the kids, and a lot of shaded areas to sit and sample their cheeses. They have a farm tour that lasts about an... More

I did not participate in the tour but did purchase a sampler of cheese. The cheese was delicious. The old farm dog and cat were so sweet. The baby goats were available to pet. They were adorable and very sociable. On our way out we purchased some goat truffles. They were so amazing! The soap we purchased was lovely as... More

Found this place listed in a travel book and was excited to go as we are both big fans of goat cheese. The most exciting thing was playing with a stray cat that was on the property. There was nothing interesting about the location and the goat cheese was very average. They tried mixing in different things to the goat... More
