My wife and I didn't want to make the trip all the way up Haleakula for the views of Maui. Instead, we found the lavender farm. The $3.00 entrance fee and hour and a half were well spent. It was a quick drive up on the Kula Highway (37) and then we went back down through Makawao to Paia (either or both worth a stop as well). The farm itself had interesting gardens as well as the lavender fields. There was a small shop for refreshments, a bite to eat and to purchase the lavender products. The store is a bit pricey but each to their own. Many visitors, however, brought lunch and had a picnic on the grounds. After a self-guided walking tour (see website for guided tour times and costs), I relaxed on the deck with great views while my wife shopped a bit for friends back home. The farm is also right next to a paraglider landing zone. We were there mid-morning and there were several coming out of the clouds to land about 50 yards from our car. The cooler weather on the volcano was also a nice break from the heat of beach side. The farm is not everything you'll do in a day but is a nice trip to this part of Maui when coupled with other activities.
