Goats don't really surf

The staff are incredible, pleasant, helpful and informative. The whole experience was not rushed and if you wanted to take a second try at milking the goat, no problem. The goat cheese tasting was amazing. A lot of samples and a generous amount, seconds, no problem. The only thing that I felt they could do better was the gift store.... More

I picked this spot because I love baby goats and then my husband picked the Ocean Vodka distillery which was about a mile down the main road. We saw goats that... More

Wonderful delicious cheese and very nice people. You get to see all the goats and the cheese making process as well as tasting the cheeses. The shop has lots of stuff you will want to pick up while there.

everyone complained about this place in their reviews saying that you had to pay for "everything". well i felt that their website was very clear on what was free and what was not, so i think our expectations were met and we were not disappointed. we paid for the goat tour and we all (three adults) enjoyed it. it was...

Great goat dairy farm and far from Ocean Vodka! Tour the farm where you get to feed the goats, overview of the process and Goat cheese tasting. My favorite.....were the baby goats! They were adorable and plenty to see on the day we visited. Fun place for kids and adults. They sell some food and have picnic tables.

Gotta say their products are good - some great. No question. But it looked like - how to say politely because I know they're trying - attention to tourists just isn't their top priority. And it shouldn't be, honestly, but if you're going to invite the public to traipse around, then perhaps a little more thought should go into it?... More

Did you know that a billy goat services as many as 80 females a day! Wow! That's quite a libido! Also learned where the term "goatee" comes from for a certain type of beard. Interesting place and worth a visit. Very good half hour tour during which we learned a lot, saw hours old kids, and tasted a variety of... More

I pet and hugged as many goats as I could! What a great experience! The tour was fantastic. We got to feed them and interact with them. So much fun! And the cheese samples will leave you wanting to buy every flavor!

We didn't sign up for a tour - instead we wanted to taste the various goat cheeses and enjoy an outdoor picnic. We enjoyed our selection of goat cheese and crackers, saw the baby kids (still being bottle fed) and learned a lot about the family that started this business. Definitely a good stop before heading to the nearby Ocean... More
