We love to grow things in our gardens… to help our planet (no transportation to the markets), to help our bodies (fresh is so healthy!), and to provide for our guests fresh herbs and greens while they are traveling, a real treat we’ve been told.

So, in the spirit of loving our planet and healthful sharing, we will let you know when what is ready. As guests, you’ll enjoy the bounty. Warm aloha to you :)

We’ve dedicated a 30 meter section of our hedge to a new installation of apple bananas. These are the really yummy ones that make other bananas obsolete!

It’ll take 6-8 months for them to ¬†start producing. We are excited and can barely wait!

Another reason we’ve put these in where they are is so that they will provide more shade to our Mauka Garden Suite. We choose green-options when it comes to keeping cool… fans, cross ventilation, high ceilings…. and now, a stand banana trees that will provide additional shade to this suite, making it even more comfy.

Colton Farms, located in Waimanalo, has started a petting zoo. In it you’ll see wild pigs, lots of chickens, geese and even a few burros. This is a serious stop, folks.
