  • We just stopped by. We enjoyed the shop and the bread pudding was the best, a must try! You can learn a lot from this stop about vanilla. I didn’t know this is the only vanilla farm in North America. I also didn’t know that I can make my own vanilla extract for 3 years. Really suggest this stop, arrive early to beat the crowd.
  • Great presentation and yummy lunch. Family owned and run business, so you are supporting them with this. What do you get out of it? Beyond the very well made lunch, drinks and ice cream; you get education on the only North America vanilla farm; a walk in beautiful Northern Hawaii hill sides. Our guide, a niece, was great. It was obvious she worked the farm cause she knew everything about the farm. Worth the drive up, rain or shine. They also have an on-site store with all kinds of fun vanilla items. Prices are just okay, but expected due to boutique style shop. Recommend to anyone.
