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 4.96 out of 5 from 223 reviews.

Noe's family farm was an amazing experience. she is very knowledgeable about all the fruit trees and the area. This was an authentic Hawaiian experience and we are extremely thankful to have had this opportunity! The best part was tasting and learning about all the different fruits on the farm. It was the best money we spent so far in Hawaii. Thank you so much Noe for opening your farm to us!

Make sure to wear comfortable clothing and be prepared for rain. I would recommend this experience to everyone we had such a pleasant time and so worth the small price! Noe was an amazing guide and a very chill person to be around.

Loved this tour! Noe is very knowledgeable and runs a very cool farm. The picnic at the end is a very nice touch! Best mango I've ever had.

We get to see many different fruit varieties on Noe's farm. The fruit enjoyment at the end was in abundance. I was even able to see a purple sugar apple in her fruit library. If you're into farms, this is the place to visit.

This was a wonderful tour around a little family farm along with interesting tid-bits about the plants, farming, etc. Loved Noe's interest in helping to extend the internal structuring of providing food for O'ahu rather than just importing everything. We loved that we finished with a HUGE amount of a variety of fruit grown at the farm. The fruit was of course delicious. Bought some produce and other delicious products at the very end which was great.
