We always like to make a trip "upcountry" and surfing goat cheese is a must. We have been doing this for quite a few years, and unfortunately (for us, not them) it has become pretty popular and is harder to relax and enjoy. The tours are fun if you haven't done that, especially with children and the many varieties of goat cheese are fun to try. don't expect too much - this is a rustic, quiant place which i love as a change to the west side of Maui. We usually go to the Lavender farm and then come here and then walk around the cowboy town (Makaweo??). We usually order several cheeses and then order a platter of luncheon meats and enjoy lunch and some time here. This time they had two huge bus groups that came just after us and it wasn't quite the quaint place I love. Also, they need to add restrooms if they are going to cater to large groups. Having said that, I highly recommend a visit and you can also order online (which I have done, but it gets expensive). do try their truffles - they are divine. i always get some to enjoy during our stay.

Had the tour of the dairy and found it very informative - there is a fee for that. Feeding the goats was really fun - they can get pretty aggressive!!! The cheese samples were great and the gelato was so delicious. The dogs and cats were all so very friendly. Definitely will need to repeat and make it for the goat milking.

We set aside a day to go around upcountry. Having done it now if I had to do it again I probably would have skipped the upcountry. We were on our honeymoon and from the description of Fromers and Froders guidebooks they highly recommended going. There isnt much there and while I'm sure the tour was informative we didnt think it was worth the cost. Everyone was very nice and like I said the cheese was good but quite expensive for the 3 tablespoons you get.

We stopped here on our way down the mountain from Kula. It was fun to see and feed the goats, but the price of the tour is high for what it consists of and the cheeses are very expensive.
Probably more fun for the kids but not for just an adult group.

This place is a real hoot! All the cheeses and desserts are available as samples and the taste is SUPREME! The name is crazy but the food is great and the location is convenient to everything!
