What you'll do

We will enjoy the farm views while we walk, talk and learn about Hawaiian Lilikoi and Mamaki Tea, as well as local history. Farm animals are also present for petting and feeding.

You will pick some fruit and tea leaves to enjoy, have great photo opportunities at one of our many pergolas full of lilikoi vines or in the Mamaki Tea Garden.

Once we walk the entire farm, we'll circle back to enjoy all the Mamaki Tea, Lilikoi Juice and fresh Cane Juice you can drink. But that's not all. A flight of specialty Lilikoi items will be prepared for us all to sample together.

We want you to leave with a full appreciation for small and diverse, natural farming, a new or renewed passion for two important Hawaiian crops of Mamaki Tea and Lilikoi fruit. If you only visit one farm during your trip, this is one whereby you can see many important and traditional Hawaiian crops in one place, as well as animals for the kids.

Picnic tables and areas available if you choose to extend your visit for a bit.

I love growing Lilikoi (passion fruit). It is a fruit that is grown all over the world with different varieties and uses. We have one of the largest amounts of structures and vines in the Hawaiian Islands specifically for Lilikoi and continue to propagate our own vine material and refine our growing methods. Our Mamaki Tea Garden is new and the tea itself has wonderful benefits for health that we enjoy introducing to our visitors.

A great experience throughout: Mike is great in communications before, during and after the tour. His passion and respect for the land and nature shows in their work and in the way he communicates with his guests. He takes the time to explain to us each part of his farm, share his knowledge of the plants and animals, and give us ample time to enjoy the farm. The after tour tea and snacks are delightful and very thoughtful. The special gift of flower to each family is a nice and sweet touch to the whole amazing experience. Thank you so much, Jackie and Mike, for your hospitality, kindness and knowledge.

One thing I’ve never really done but have always wanted to do is go to a local farm in Hawaii. Little did I know I’d be going to one of the best ones I could have hoped for. Mike was such a fantastic person to meet and you could tell he really cares about the quality and sustainability of the things he is growing. With all the projects he has going, I can’t wait to come back sometime in the future and see how much it has grown. The location is quite the site since you pretty much get to see the ocean the entire time, but not just that, it’s a reminder that there are still people who care about food quality farming and have animals free ranging about. Honestly, learning about farm life beats a lot of other things you could be spending your time on AND it’s a cool spot to see no matter what. Amazing.

My friend and I enjoyed interacting with the friendly farm animals (you can pick up the chickens!) and learning about lilikoi propagation. The homemade condiments, snacks, and fruit at the end are incredibly delicious~ some of the best tasting things I’ve tried on the island.

Michael is welcoming host and we loved seeing how he is making dream farm into a reality. Tasting the passion fruit in several different forms and the mamaki tea was so much fun.

We visited and toured Michael and Jackies gorgeous farm. We LOVED this experience! We are huge lovers of lilikoi and it was really interesting to learn about the fruit but even better was the incredible tasting they had for us with a number of delicious treats made with lilikoi. We also sampled the mamaki tea- both hot and cold and sugar cane juice- all were delicious. We also walked around the farm (11 acres) and learned about many of the different crops they are growing. They also have a number of animals that will greet you. They went out of their way to accommodate us and my mom who has limited mobility-this is a really special activity and a beautiful part of the island to see.
