  • Beautiful grounds and location. While interesting, the tour provides limited information and really isn't that informative. 
  • no cheese but they gave us some t shirts for our efforts in driving there. we will come back in august when cheese will be back on shelves. 
  • Was in the area visiting the Iowa Speedway and decided to visit the dairy as it is close by. This is in a office setting with a small retail outlet to sell their Blue cheese and several other varietie...  read more »
  • Will be so glad when they can start shipping cheese again!! You must visit the farm/shop and sample the different cheeses. Their popcorn is great and you must purchase the popcorn bowl. Pickup their recipes using their cheeses and enjoy! The Newton museum off of the interstate has a lot about Maytag and it is very interesting. Becky
  • Don't go there is no cheese to purchase. Something about regulations with state. Not making. Lady there saying sorry and handing out knife. Way off highway.
  • I was vacillating between 4 and 5 stars only because tourists can no longer go into the barn or caves where the blue cheese ages, but this is not the dairy's fault. It was mandated by the FDA after 9-11. You can take pics of the barn and surrounding landscapes but it must be from the road or from the sidewalks surrounding the office building. What to expect....a clean office, a little video about the cheese making process (be aware and they will warn you, it is dated....the farm no longer has its own herd of Holsteins, rather milk is shipped in from surrounding dairy farms), a peek inside the wrapping area from windows along the wall, then on to the small retail cheese shop where you will be invited to sample all of the offerings. The catalog does not list all of the different types of cheeses this company produces. In addition to blue, white cheddar, and Swiss, there is an aged cheddar, Havarti, brick, Muenster and Edam along with a smoked baby Swiss, crocks of cheddar spread, etc. Prices average around $4.50/lb, well worth it as the cheese is superb. Employees are very friendly.
