From Farm to Table: The Journey of Goat Cheese

From Farm to Table: The Journey of Goat Cheese

At Surfing Goat Dairy, our passion for crafting artisanal goat cheese begins right here on our picturesque farm nestled in the upcountry region of Maui. From the moment our goats are lovingly cared for to the final product gracing your table, every step of the journey is infused with dedication to quality and tradition.

It all starts with our beloved herd of goats, who roam freely on our lush pastures, grazing on the finest grasses and vegetation. Twice a day, our skilled team meticulously hand-milks each goat, ensuring the freshest and highest-quality milk for our cheeses. This milk is the heart and soul of our cheese-making process, prized for its rich flavor and creamy texture.

Once the milk is collected, our cheese-making artisans spring into action, using time-honored techniques to transform it into delectable goat cheese. From creamy chèvre to tangy feta and everything in between, each variety is crafted with precision and care. We take pride in using only the finest ingredients and traditional methods, resulting in cheeses that are bursting with flavor and character.

But our commitment to quality doesn't stop there. We carefully age and mature our cheeses to perfection, allowing them to develop their distinctive flavors and textures. Whether you prefer a fresh and tangy chèvre or a bold and robust aged cheese, you can trust that each bite will be a true delight for the senses.

Our dedication to excellence has not gone unnoticed, as our award-winning goat cheeses have earned a cherished place on the menus of renowned island restaurants. From beloved local eateries like Paia Flat Bread, Leilanis, Hula Grill, to the top hotels on the island including The Grand Wailea, the Fairmont Kea Lani, and The Four Seasons, our cheeses are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.

For those looking to bring a taste of Maui home, Surfing Goat Dairy makes it easy. Our artisanal cheeses can be found in select local grocery stores, including the popular Down to Earth in Kahului and the charming Okao Market in Up Country. Whether you're a cheese connoisseur or simply looking to elevate your next meal, our cheeses are sure to impress.
