What you'll do

The experience consists of a farm tour of our organic fruit orchard and garden. Easy Walking. We will show you exotic fruit trees, aromatic flowers and herb trees. Orchids are draped all over the property.

Followed by a tasting of seasonal, organic, non-GMO tropical fruits grown here on our 6 acre diversified food forest.

"We learned how to sprinkle green mangos with chili salt to offset their sourness" "We discovered that slivers of fresh jackfruit taste like juicy-fruit gum, but with the texture of chicken"

Put simply, the sort of next level fruit knowledge, AND FLAVOR EXPERIENCE, that everyone deserves to gain on vacation in Hawaii.

Great experience learning about local fruits we have never tried before. The location is amazing! Driving through the lava of 2018 to get there was an experience on its own.

Lovely farm tour, tasting fruits from the trees on the way round the property, and then a sit-down fruit tasting at a table at the end. Sweet cats and geese and beautiful trees all around, both Janelle and the tour guide Carson were very knowledgeable.

Beautiful property learned a lot about the plants and different fruits. Tried a lot of weird and wonderful new fruits I have never seen or heard of before

Janelle is AWESOME and the fruit we sampled on the tour was just incredible. Portions served were generous and we were even able to take home some extra. Anyone looking for an intimate, laid-back experience on a small organic farm should not hesitate to book! Our only complaint was that the whole experience lasted 2.5 hours instead of 1.5 as advertised. We thought the tour portion could have been much more concise. So consider that if you’re on a tight timeline, but if you’re down for a leisurely experience, then we definitely recommend Janelle’s farm!

Beautiful grounds and kind staff! You may want to get a sense of what will be covered at the start or double check on timing of the tour as it ran a bit long. However, the fruit was phenomenal and we got to take some home after the tour for an incredibly reasonable price!

Great introduction to organic farming on Hawaii. Tour was pretty long, about 2 hours plus 30 min of just fruit tasting, so keep that in mind when planning. Fruit was great (I don’t usually like papaya, but boy were these delicious!) Overall great experience and great value.
