  • Description

    Description

    Aloha! Welcome! We are a 10 acre farm located in Makena, Maui. For anyone interested in organic farming, this is an excellent opportunity to learn about tropical agroforestry and regenerative agriculture. We are one of the only farms on the south side of Maui. We grow a variety of fruits including mango, avocado, banana, papaya, dragon fruit, and citrus. We have around 60 mature coconut palms and are beginning a reforestation project for native trees as well as a coconut orchard. Travelers will gain a unique, hands on experience and hopefully leave feeling healthy both physically and mentally.

    Hawaii has a rich and unique culture. We are surrounded by archeological sites, ancient walls, and very old trees. We are in the process of designing and shaping 3 acres of land in preparation for planting native species. Learn about Hawaiian history, sustainability, and connect with the aina (land) in a profound and meaningful way.
