Surfing Goat Dairy in Maui Upcountry Sells Good Goat Cheese

Surfing-Goat-Day-sign in maui hawaiiSurfing Goat Dairy is at 3651 Omaopio Rd., Kula. The Surfing Goat Dairy is 42-acre ranch with a wood hut painted red and green and strung with Christmas bulbs. The dairy is run by a couple from Germany. Thomas and Eva Kafsack traded in their relatively normal lives in Germany—he was a software engineer, she a high school language teacher—to run the place, raising goats and making cheese in the middle of the Pacific.


Surfboards usually litter the lawn, and sometimes goats played on them as if they were a custom-designed Hawaiian jungle gym.

The Surfing Goat Dairy produces more than 30 types of cheese, like a lightly salted chèvre to a sweet spreadable cheese flavored with apples, bananas, and curry. Eva Kafsack is like a lot of people in the Maui Upcountry folk: friendly, but not so much as to encourage sunburned tourists like us to stay for good.

Check it out, and buy some awesome goat cheese to eat during your Maui Hawaii stay.
