I see that a lot of the farms are near the Kona area. What are the best ones to visit that are not in that area? Coffee? Pineapple? Etc
North Kohala has become a hotbed of farming, farm tour, and farm-to-school activities, so much so that there is now a website:
The governor selected the North Kohala school complex as the starting point for the state's new farm-to-school initiative last year, in recognition of the amazing work that is being done in that area.Edited: 2:10 pm, June 10, 2018
We haven't gone yet, but we're thinking about doing the Hawaiian Vanilla Company Tour and Lunch. It's in Paauilo. Right now, planned for Friday 6/15. I'll post a review if we end up going.
We did the vanilla tour last week. The lunch was worth the price of admission and the tour was interesting. Highly recommend.
