Food & FunMaui

Make a cheese run to the SURFING GOAT DAIRY in Kula and get a look at upcountry scenery along the way. This national AWARD-WINNING DAIRY produces more than 30 varieties of GOURMET GOAT CHEESES on its 42-acre farm, located on Ōma‘opio Road. A growing herd of some 200 goats fuels the operation.

Fun fact: The dairy is owned by German expatriates, Thomas and Eva Kafsack, who moved to Maui after Thomas sold his German software company to one of Europe’s largest mortgage banks.

TOURS are conducted daily. Special tours include a 60-minute, hands-on workout that provides an opportunity to herd, feed and milk goats. TASTINGS of the entire line of 30-plus cheeses also are available, which can be enjoyed on the picnic tables on the farm. Surfing Goat

BREAKFAST for the trek down from Haleakalā, and other unique products (gourmet goat cheese truffles, anyone?) also are available at the dairy’s specialty shop. Bonus: Keep an eye out for their products on restaurant menus and at local markets.
