The cleanest air, the purest water, the freshest cheese.
The Honomu Goat Dairy sits on nearly 15 acres of beautiful Hamakua Coast, overlooking the ocean. There are always baby goat to play with - free of charge! The experience is energizing, rejuvenating, and hysterical. You'll leave with happy memories, lots of pictures, and maybe a little muddier than when you went in. Ours is the only herd of registered, purebred, Nubian goats producing specialty cheeses in the state of Hawaii. The St. Isidore herd also provides milk for The Hula Girl Soap Co. and the Hula Momma Candy Co. It is our goats, in concert with the lush natural pastures grown on former sugar cane fields, that make our Chevre, our confections, and our soaps so special. We are members of the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA) and participate in DNA testing and dairy herd improvement practices to ensure our goats are being the best they can be. Mary is a graduate of the Ecole Academy where she learned many of the secrets that go into making world-class caramel and fudge, while Bill has participated in the ADGA's Linear Appraisal program and has learned cheese making from Kate Johnson from The Art of Cheese, John Bitner, Fossil Creek Ranch, Arizona, as well as Gianacales Calwell, through the ADGA.
Mary is our confections expert and product manager. Basically, she's the brains of our operation!
Bill is the herd manager and fromager. (That means he's the cheese guy!)
Audrey makes the soap. Which is good, because she also cleans up most of the poop too!
