Christy and her family were welcoming. It was evident that they are passionate about caring for the animals and the environment. The interaction with the animals was fantastic. So friendly. It is a challenge to find the farm. You might want to call before you get on the road to verify directions. We enjoyed this visit immensely. Mahalo

This experience was the high point of our trip to Kauai for our 7 year old twins; the experience that Christy created was custom tailored to their level, they had a lot of time to explore the space and animal interactions at their own pace, and Christy was incredibly knowledgeable about the work she's doing. We'll definitely do this again!

This experience was fantastic! Christy was so hospitable, she even came to show us the way after we became lost on the drive in! We could tell how much she cared about the animals, and being a steward of the land. She was kind, remembered our kids’ names, and made it a wonderful experience!
