Yesterday my family and I headed out to Upcountry again to Surfing Goat Dairy. The farm was started by a husband and wife duo (the husband owned a software company and the wife was a high school teacher) from Austria who fell in love with Maui and decided to move there and start a goat farm. We had wanted to visit last time we were in Maui, a year and a half ago, but time escaped our grasp and we were never able to make it during that trip.
The goat farm is nothing too extravagant, just a bunch of goats and baby goats and goat cheese and friendly people, but it’s really amazing how happy something so simple can make you feel. Everyone was gathered around a pen of baby goats. Some of them looked like they were newborns. We got to feed the goats and learn how they care for them and use their goats for cheese.
As a side note, thanks for all your suggestions on what to do when we are on Maui (and keep sending them my way!). I’ve discovered quite a few of you live on the island, which is awesome! This weekend we are going horseback riding and then relaxing by the beach. Enjoy your weekend, guys, wherever you are!
PS. You can see a video I made at the farm on Instagram. Can I get a goat now? Juuuuust kidding.
