This is a small goat farm in the up country. Not a lot to see after navigating a long winding road. Would not recommend.

This is an adorable goat farm and decorated with recycled surf boards. Beautiful scenery. Wear tennis shoes as you will walk thru paths.

The tour isn't ideal for kids, but to the staff's credit, they saw my 3 year old son and immediately offered to get a few bushels of hay to feed the goats. My son had a blast! The goats were super friendly and accessible. The...More

Another new Maui discovery I usually am NOT a fan of goat cheese but here... can’t deny how great many unusual flavors taste. And they do online shipping and you can freeze and refreeze for up to 6 months. The variety of flavors will provide...More

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 of the 10 minute tour were tiny also. It...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 milk cheeses....More

I am a huge animal lover and thoroughly enjoyed feeding the goats. They have excellent goat cheese. It was an easy walking tour.

No, I don't believe there is goat milking available. They have a highly mechanized method to milking goats, and I don't believe any milking is done by hand. Also, they have a set recipe for the goat cheese, so, I doubt they... More

Yes there is a a fee for the tours. You do not have to take the tour(s). You see the goats as you drive up to the main building. You can also feed and pet the baby goats. Hope this helps.

It is an easy drive but a long way to go to just see the Goat Farm, try to stop at some other places along the way or further out. I believe Ocean Vodka is nearby too.
