What you'll do

First, Ill pick you up in Hilo, then we will travel up the historic Hamakua Coast, where we will take the world-famous Onomea Bay scenic route up to our Hakalau pasture. Here we will feed some of the Holstein cows that were rescued last year from the Big Island Dairy!

Afterwards we can then visit one of our herds in Honomu and make a fun stop at Akaka Falls as well.

We will then head back to Hilo, but not before we stop at our Papaikou/Onomea pasture where we can cuddle with some extremely friendly yearlings, the stars of our "Cow Cuddle Therapy".

Finally, we will return to Hilo! (I can drop you off wherever is most convenient)

100% of proceeds go towards the care of all our cows; see Hawaii, have an unforgettable experience with amazing cows, and support a wonderful cause!

I am the founder and operator of Krishna Cow Sanctuary. I work with 58 cows across the island, networking with community members to create win-win scenarios. I rescued my first cow 6 years ago and have been taking care of an ever-increasing number of bovines since then!

I spend 365 days a year caretaking cows; cows are my life! Some have even dubbed me "The Cow Whisperer". I can answer most any cow-related questions! Im also an organic farmer/gardener and an advocate for sustainable agriculture.

This was so much fun. We basically had a private tour because no one else booked so it was extra fun. The experience was extremely personalized. My girlfriend loves cows and she had the time of her life. Some of the cows really are super cuddly like our dogs. The views of the ocean and fields from the different farms were beautiful too. We highly recommend this experience. It is one of the best we have done. James is a pleasure to hang out with. He had great stories, lots of knowledge, and a kind heart. Thank you again, James!!!
