If you are a foodie, a gardener or just interested in doing something out of the ordinary, then the O'o Farm tour is for you. It is both educational and entertaining. The tour starts off with a trek through the fields that provide the fresh produce for the Pacific'o and I'o restaurants in Lahaina. On the day we were there, half of our group of twelve were permanent residents, so this is not the average tourist attraction. We learned about coffee, composting and many types of fruits and vegetables. We also smelled, crushed and tasted several plants and their leaves or seeds as we worked our way around the acreage. Ansel gave an excellent overview, clipping and collecting various greens that were destined to become our salad as he went. Meanwhile, Chef JJ fired up the barbecue to prepare the mahi mahi and cooked veggies. All of this was accompanied by fresh bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and Hawaiian red sea salt for garnish. Dining at large wooden picnic tables with a view to the sea only made the meal better. And the French press coffee and homemade chocolate truffles ended the experience perfectly. A unique opportunity well worth the drive and the price.
