The Surfing Goat Dairy in Kula, Maiu in Hawai

 

One of the fun things we did on our recent trip to Maui was visit the Surfing Goat Dairy on the slopes of Haleakala, the 10,000 foot dormant volcano on Maui. We weren’t staying on that part of the island so it was a bit of a drive but well worth it. More on Haleakala later.

 

The dairy is officially in lower Kula, a small town part way down (or up) the mountain. I had seen this goat cheese brand on a restaurant menu and we thought it’d be fun to check the place out since we were going to be fairly close by.

 

This male goat was fun to watch - he was playing with his food dish, carrying it around and dropping it on the ground - but that video didn't turn out. This one of him bleating is pretty funny.

 

 

We didn’t do an official tour, or spend time trying to milk a goat or to try our hand at goat herding, but did enjoy a few minutes touring their facility and sampled some of the blueberry lilikoi (yellow passion fruit) gelato which was amazing!!

And being the chocoholics we are we also had to…had to…buy a box of assorted goat milk truffles, and a jar of French Dream goat cheese with herbs de provence, one of their award winners. The dairy also serves lunch (goat cheese, Panini sandwiches and more), and you can buy goat milk soaps and other merchandize in their store.

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, despite being busy, and it was fun to see the goats. Right now there are about 140 of them, with the expectation of about 200 kids in the next 3 months we were told.

Thanks Ron and Alexandra Seigel 

I certainly thought of you when I was writing this. I love the name - it fits with the culture of where they are, it catches your attention and is memorable, they have no competition on Maui from what I could see, and the surfing theme was everywhere - surfboards for fencing as one example. I overheard someone asking if they had done any photo shoots with goats on surfboards. Afterall dogs can do it and goats are pretty nimble and smart...but perhaps water phobic.

The products were all memorable, too, so good all around!

Jeff

Jeff, that's a really well done story. Wish we had known about the Surfing Goat Dairy when we were there on Maui. Looks like fun.
