We saw this place in the way to see Akaka Falls, and the sign lured me in with Sea Salt Goat Caramels. Wow do they deliver... so delicious! Excellent goat cheese too. Try the Big Island Spice - perfect for a picnic by the beach. My kids had a blast playing with the baby goats, and tell everyone we see that was the best part of our trip to Hawai.

We were heading to akana falls and stopped here on the way. Worth it as it’s own destination! You can play with the adorable baby’s goats for free, they are so sweet and silly. Then you can taste the most amazing goat cheese and caramels all made from goats milk! They also have a lot of local products and gifts.

You'll drive to Akaka Falls, no doubt, so do yourself a favor and stop here for some delicious goat cheese and -- most especially -- some of their sweet offerings including macadamia nut carmaels and goats milk fudge. The soaps are also beautiful and fragrant.

It was so amazing to play with the goats and get to talk to the owner of the shop! Also the goat cheese was to die for which she said her husband made the cheeses, while she makes the caramel! By the way the caramel was simply divine as well. It truly is a hidden gem on the Big Island. If I ever come back to Kona I will for sure be stopping here again

We're glad you stopped by! And thanks for the kind words about the cheese and caramel. The goats don't much care but Mary and I sure do. I apologize for the construction mess, but the window is spectacular! So much brighter inside the Tiki Hut with 15 square feet of glass in the back.

We stopped because we saw the sign on our way back from Akaka Falls. The goat are, of course, adorable but you have to sample the goat cheeses. And the soaps are intriguing and smell great . . .Kona Kitchen Goat Milk Soap, Tropical Escape goat Milk Soap, Chamomile and Hemp Oil and Long Board Beer Soap. There are even more types of soaps from which to choose. And the Peanut butter brownie was incredible.

Aloha Rebecca! I'm glad you had a great time here at the goat farm. Thank you for the encouraging comments on the things we make here. The Peanut Butter confection is a new product inspired by the Blue Ribbon winner at the annual American Dairy Goat Association goat milk product competition. We think ours is a winner, too.
