Maui's Winery

 One of our favorite place to visit is Maui`s Winery in Ulupalakua. Everyone is transported to a place back in time on Maui. You imagine being here in the 1850's when Captain James Makee planted thousands of trees.
 The Camphor tree

The little prison

 Jade Flowers

Beautiful Year for Ag Tourism

Aloha from Maui, Hawaii
 Our New Year started out with a bang!
We got tons of bookings. Thank you, everyone for joining us on Maui Country Farm Tours. 

Photo_1

We're so excited to be doing what we love and sharing Maui's Agricultural Beauty. Imagine your dream coming true. 

Photo_2

We visit gorgeous farms and take scenic drives as we watch the skies change before our eyes each day. Clouds move quickly in Hawaii and it is such an amazing phenomena to see clouds drawn to Haleakala by the end of the day when the mountain was totally clear in the morning sun.

Photo_3

We love Alii Kula Lavender Farm and sharing all the amazing properties of lavender. An ancient prehistoric looking protea farm (actually proteas were introduced to Hawaii in the 1970's) and lavender ten years ago by Mr. Alii Chang. The lavender gives the farm a sweet European look while the stately Proteas give an ancient beauty mingled with the lavender. It's so amazing.

The big trees at Mauis Winery in Ulupalakua are the touch of old Maui we love to share the most. I love to tell the history of the ranch from 1846 to the present then arrive at the King's Cottage for their tasting of pineapple and grape wines. They love it all. We pick up our Maui Gold Pineapples at Ulupalakua Ranch Store our last stop before heading to our picnic lunch.

We visited Ho'okipa over one hundred times last year and never tired of the beauty. The surf, the Honu,  (Hawaiian Sea Turtles) the whales now spouting in the distance. One day a Honu waved to us. So sweet to see one in a wave with a surfer. What a wild and beautiful place on earth and we get to live here. I'm so thrilled to be sharing the beauty of Maui. 
This is the Bi-Centennial of coffee in Hawaii and we really look forward to sharing the coffee experience. We visit Piliani Kope Coffee Farm in Launiupoko for a seed to cup experience and The Kaanapali Coffee Estate five hundred acres of amazing coffee plantation.


Come join us and let us share the beauty with you. We love to give you a personal tour you'll remember forever.

Kailua Morning

Today I had the pleasure of meeting my twitter and Facebook friend Marianne Shultz @DaMews in Kailua.

She's good friends with Camille of Camille's on Wheels. (excellent foodie)
Here holding mango pie.

Camille @Camillesonwheel
LOL 1 wheel We sampled grilled cheese with roasted pablano chiles on Hawaiian Sweet Bread that was fabulous and teriyaki soft taco with an amazing slaw that complimented everything with its sweet mirin mixture.

Photo_4

Michael and Camille...

To top everything off Camille had baked Mango Pie that was delightful.
She insisted I take a piece of pie to @AlohaBruce (my next stop) in Hawaii Kai. I had a wonderful day visiting friends...

Hawaii is the best place not only for the breathtaking beauty but the small town friendliness even on a more populated island like Oahu.

Awesome place to live... 808 283-9131

Carnival Cruisers

Thank you to travel agent Donna Hurd for booking this wonderful tour with us.

Photo_1

Large groups are fun and challenging.
We had an awesome time at the Lavender Farm where they set up tables down below on the farm just days before the first KupuMaui Brunch. Christie transported some of our handicapped guests in the Gator. (it's like a small golf cart with a flatbed) I sang and played ukulele while Ricky served huge strawberries, Maui Gold Pineapple, guava and lilikoi juices and delicious by Whole Foods Market Kahului, Maui. They loved everything!

Gorgeous day at Maui's Winery...

Parting shot...

Marilyn
