This guy. Check him out.
These are his friends:
They’re residents of the Surfing Goat Dairy in Maui, Hawaii and I got to meet them on my honeymoon. At the Surfing Goat Dairy, you get to take a tour of the farm, feed some goats and sample some of the best goat cheese you’ll probably ever have.
It’s seriously good goat cheese.
To get to the dairy, which is located in Kula, we took a breathtaking drive along the coast from Kahana, followed by a journey down a narrow road that cuts through a seemingly endless sugar cane field.
At the start of the tour, you get a small bag of hay and you’re free to feed any goats you encounter.
This kid’s pants were pretty cool.
Of course the best part of the tour was the cheese. We sampled 6 different flavors of cheese as we sat out at a large wooden table in a covered patio. A couple large, mellow dogs padded about and we could hear the goats bleating in the near distance. It was a pretty cool vibe.
My favorite cheeses were the “Maui Secret” and one called the “Ole!” which was infused with jalapeños, artichokes, lime juice and cilantro.
So fresh. So creamy. All in all, it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! And if you live in the U.S. and can’t make it to Maui, the cheese can come to you - they ship to the mainland. I plan on ordering a bit around Christmas as a special treat.
