Take a Farm TourBig Island
Don’t be misled by Hawai‘i Island’s barren lava fields. The majority of the state’s agricultural products are grown and processed here, such as HAMAKUA MUSHROOMS, which offers a FARM TOUR & TASTING and FACTORY TOUR of Hawai‘i’s famed, buttery mushroom facilities.
HAWAII FOREST & TRAIL conducts a unique tour of local farms that are using sustainable agriculture methods. First, the tour heads to KAHUA RANCH in the Kohala Mountains, where cattle and sheep are raised (and where great views of the coast abound from its 3,000-foot elevation!). The next stop is HONOPUA FARM, where organic vegetables, lavender and cut flowers are farmed. After these stops, attendees will be served dinner at the award-winning MERRIMAN’S WAIMEA, where chefs prepare gourmet dishes using fresh, local ingredients.
