We were disappointed. We were expecting more. We wanted to sample and purchase some quality cheese however the setup wasn't conducive for sampling and purchasing. One of the staff was rude to us while trying to find a parking space. They waved their arms and...More

We arrived at the farm about 25 minutes before closing today. I was excited to taste the cheese as it’s one of my favorites. I arrived to a pretty long line, but waited patiently as all the other folks. There is a young guy working...More

No, I don't believe there is goat milking available. They have a highly mechanized method to milking goats, and I don't believe any milking is done by hand. Also, they have a set recipe for the goat cheese, so, I doubt they... More

Yes there is a a fee for the tours. You do not have to take the tour(s). You see the goats as you drive up to the main building. You can also feed and pet the baby goats. Hope this helps.

It is an easy drive but a long way to go to just see the Goat Farm, try to stop at some other places along the way or further out. I believe Ocean Vodka is nearby too.
