We wanted to Congratulate Gerard’s Restaurant for their recent rating in the Zagats guide. They were rate Maui’s Best Retaurant in the 2009 Hawaii Edition of the Zagat’s guide. Their fabulous French food eaned a 28 out of 30 points, the only one on Maui.
Yes, believe it or not you can actually adopt a goat on our farm. You can pick one of them out and give it a name and we do all the work to take care of it. Here are pictures of the 2 adopted goats we have on the farm right now. The larger one […]
Surfing Goat Dairy Why: Because who knew goats could surf? Just kidding. The cute Ping Pong Ball cheeses from this small, family-owned dairy on the slopes of Maui’s Haleakala crater had the creamiest texture of any goat cheese we tasted, with a balanced, mild hint of garlic.
Surfing Goat Dairy was a delightful surprise. At first we thought we just driving through a neighborhood when a long drive of palm trees appeared with a well-manicured entrance. We walked around the to the outdoor café with its funky surf architecture. The place just had a cool vibe. Tours are available and visitors can […]
The Surfing Goat Dairy is a fun little diversion. It was founded by two German expatriates (seriously, what is it about Maui that attracts the Europeans?), but we were toured around by a kindly, portly, limping Polynesian lady wearing a muumuu.

Once upon a lazy Saturday afternoon, two girls and their mothers decided to go on a drive upcountry. their paths converged at the surfing goat dairy on Omaopio road. One mother-daughter pair decided to get silly: while the other pair was more interested in sampling the award-winning cheeses and getting to know the farm animals, […]
