What you'll do

Discover what it's like to run an 8 acre tropical fruit farm in paradise! You'll use all our senses on a walking tour of Lokoea Farms. We'll give you some history of the farm and the area, and guide your exploration of our 3 orchards to learn about the ethnobotany and horticulture of Hawai‘i's unique fruit trees and harvest some fruits in season. Get ready to marvel at our vanilla plants and smell the aroma of our vanilla beans. You'll even get to help feed our hilarious chickens, and collect their rainbow-colored eggs.

Then it's time for our picnic! We'll relax on the lawn or at the picnic table overlooking the gorgeous orchid-filled gardens while you eat your fill of farm-grown exotic tropical fruit and nuts - the freshest, most delicious, and perfectly in season delicacies. We'll teach you how to use our coconut husker to open up a coconut. Nothing store-bought can compare to the amazing flavor of coconut water and meat from a just-picked nut. You'll even use our special nutcracker to experience the rich flavor of our macadamia nuts.
Other things to note
Wear closed-toe shoes, a hat, and sunscreen. We do not have a public restroom at the farm. Starbucks or McDonalds in Haleiwa have public restrooms. You may want to bring bug spray and water bottle.

A 6th generation local, Noe grew up on the land where the farm is now, back when it was surrounded by sugarcane, and Hale‘iwa was still a sleepy little plantation town. After spending some time on the mainland, she returned to her hometown to help her family run the farm. She's learned a lot about tropical fruit and citrus in the last three years, and the struggling little business is now financially sustainable and provides her with a full-time job. Like our trees, Noe has deep roots in this special place.

Kekai is the first non-family employee at Lokoea Farms. When he's not working here, he's studying ‘Olelo Hawai‘i (Hawaiian language) and Malama ‘Aina (sustainability) at the University of Hawaii. His enthusiasm is contagious and he's a master at husking coconuts.

We love our farm, and we'd love to share it with you.

Where you'll be

Lokoea Farms is eight beautiful acres nestled in the Anahulu River Valley, at the base of impressive Mt. Ka‘ala. Just off the main highway, we are easy to find, but just far enough from the hustle and bustle of Hale‘iwa town. It's our little slice of paradise, filled with exotic trees, gorgeous orchids, and lots of peace and quiet.

Rated 4.95 out of 5 from 129 reviews.

The tour of the farm is well worth it. They are dedicated to their farm and are proud of it. It was nice to see the varieties of tropical fruits and get to sample them during a tour. A good experience overall.

A wonderful way to see the flora that is possible in the tropics. Enjoyed a learning walk around the farm followed by a fresh fruit picnic. You will get a taste of what is currently giving fruit. We were able to taste fresh orange, mango, grapefruit, tangerine, lime, peanut butter fruit, coconut, banana and macadamia nut. Amazing! I highly recommend this experience.

Really wonderful start to the day in Haleiwa! I learned SO MUCH about all the fruits I've been eating in Hawaii and I definitely feel closer to the process of stewarding land in Hawaii. Noe was so amazing sharing all the information about her experiences and we were able to try so many fruits! So glad we did this!!!

The farm tour is informative and well-paced. My experience was in the winter and I was pleasantly surprised with the diverse availability of fruits! The fruit sampling picnic as well as the interactive coconut husking were the highlights to the whole experience. Definitely one worth checking out, I will be looking forward to planning a trip in the Spring/Summer months

Wonderful experience- learned lots about the different fruit trees on Noe's farm and tried a whole bunch of fruits. The picnic at the end, prepared by Kekai, was really well put together and very delicious-all from the farm! Beautiful location. Noe and her little helper, Theodore, were very friendly and were amazing hosts and guides for the experience. Also met the chickens and the cute dog, Boba. Lovely time altogether; Highly recommend this tour.
