Maui Dairies & Creameries
There are two exceptional Dairies/Creameries on Maui that are definitely worth a visit. These dairies are situated midway up Haleakala, in the cooler part of the island, providing a perfect environment for their products. The two dairies are Haleakala Creamery and Surfing Goat Dairy.
Although both dairies specialize in goat farming, they offer distinct and delicious confections. Surfing Goat Dairy is renowned for its goat cheese, boasting an extensive and award-winning menu of goat cheese, as well as delectable chocolate truffles. On the other hand, Haleakala Creamery is famous for its goat milk caramel, made in the traditional cajeta style, which is a type of dulce de leche made with goat’s milk. Cajeta is a thickened syrup made of sweetened, caramelized goat's milk, originating from Mexico.
Both dairies are a must-visit while in Maui, offering a unique and unforgettable experience. The breathtaking views of Haleakala, combined with the delicious and unique products, make for an unforgettable visit. So, if you're looking for a memorable experience, be sure to add these two dairies to your itinerary while in Maui.
Haleakala Creamery is a premium producer of handcrafted, small-batch goat milk Caramel Sauces and “Goatlato” Ice Cream, as well as Chèvre and other sweets. We use only the finest local ingredients found throughout the Hawaiian Islands to create our delectable treats.

Each goat is a cherished member of our family and has a name. We are committed to improving herd traits for premium milk production, health, and good behavior.
Our “farm-to-spoon” products can be found at local retailers throughout Hawaii, and our caramel sauces are available nationwide through our online store. We take pride in our commitment to using only the freshest, highest quality ingredients, and our dedication to sustainable farming practices.
At Haleakala Creamery, we believe that every bite should be a delicious and memorable experience. We invite you to taste the difference that our handcrafted, small-batch products can make in your life.
