Made with Aloha ...Tastes like Paradise
The Hawai’i Island Goat Dairy is a family farmstead dairy located on a retired macadamia nut orchard on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island of Hawai’i.
What makes our cheese so special? Just as the terroir of a vineyard determines the quality of wine made, the land – or aina – of Hawai’i shapes what it produces. Our goats range on local wild grasses, bamboo, ginger, ti, macadamia, and banana leaves, and they produce sweet, creamy milk. We add no chemicals or hormones as we minimally process the cheese in our commercial kitchen.
We are a farmstead dairy, which gives us control over the entire life cycle of our cheese. We can thus guarantee humane treatment of our goats and the freshness and purity of our product. We are working to transition to a fully sustainable farmstead dairy.
In addition to our flagship fresh chevre and other fresh cheeses, we produce cave aged, naturally rinded, and mold ripened cheeses. Learn more about our cheese here.
Hawai’i Island Goat Dairy has been part of the Hawai'i Island food to table movement since its inception. You can find our cheese on the menu at restaurants and in retail outlets throughout the islands as well as at Farmer's Markets on the Big Island. Find us here.
