  • Unfortunately our guide seemed less than enthusiastic about taking us on a tour of the farm. Almost annoyed actually! It almost felt like she was reading a script from a card. The samples at the end o...  more »
  • I can't speak to the tour, but we got a cheese sample platter, and it was delicious. So at least stop in and do that. I have problems with cow's milk, so it was nice to be able to try all the goat's m...  more »

  • We are so glad we stopped in on our trip up Haleakala. The goats are adorable and the cheese tasting was so yummy. We couldn't resist buying cheese and chocolate truffles! They even have a great way to take cheese home on the plane. The tour is short but informative and easy for kids or older adults to navigate.
  • Such a cute place where you can pet the baby goats from the neck down. The food is good at affordable prices. I would definitely recommend trying a few different cheeses. The goat cheese is not that strong and they have great selection of flavors. The goat milk ice cream is also good.
  • We really enjoyed this farm. It is small and pretty low key but still a fun short stop. We did not do a tour. There is a pen of baby goats that you can pet. My son loved this! They also offer a few samples of free goat cheese which were all great! The soap they sell is amazing and we all ended up buying some!
  • Wondeful local business! Only one on Maui to be certified humane! They have tours every 30 minutes ($12.50 a person), you have a big red bucket filled with hay that you share with the entire group (it goes fast), then they take you over to where they milk the mama goats (730 am and 330pm). After all your questions on killing and cheese they take you to a gazebo where they give you samples of goat cheese (4 different cheeses a tiny spoon full per person). If you choose not to do the tour you can pay $2 for a small brown paper bag with hay (2 small hand worths). Goats are very sweet, will come up and let you pet them. It's cheaper just to pick weeds off the ground and feed it to them (they'll eat anything).
  • My suggestion: Bring your own crackers, wine, and cured meats along with you when you go. Sample the goat cheeses, and select your favorite six as a flight. Then, sit down at their lovely patio and enjoy your new delicious cheeses with all your favorite charcuterie standbys. Outside food and drink is welcome at their dairy. This place is a perfect way to meet some dairy goats and enjoy a peaceful and tasty lunch away from the heavy/touristy Maui traffic.
