GROVE FARM is one of the leading players in an island-wide movement towards sustainability and locavorism with a history as rich as the soil that supports its diverse crops. At 40,000 acres, it has shifted from sugar chief to leading Kaua‘i’s community and economic development—and being a steward of its ‘aina (land). This year it aims to bring grass-fed dairy to Kaua‘i with the formation of HAWAII DAIRY FARMS. Visit www.grovefarm.com to learn about its mission and upcoming events.

GROVE FARM HOMESTEAD on Nawiliwili Road in Lihu‘e is an 80-acre living museum that was the site of one of Kaua‘i’s oldest SUGAR PLANTATIONS, founded in 1864 by George Wilcox. The MUSEUM contains the original missionary family mansion, workers’ quarters, impressive locomotive collection (and free train ride!) and extensive gardens of tropical flowers and trees. Unhurried, two-hour tours are given in small groups, lead by Kaua‘i residents. Tours are offered Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Advanced reservations are required. Requested donation of $20 for adults and $10 for children (5-12). To schedule, call (808) 245-3202, or email tours@grovefarm.org. Visit www.grovefarm.org.
