Tour Ali‘i Kula Lavender farm

By Staff | Jul 8, 2010

KULA — Escape the summer heat and visit Ali‘i Kula Lavender. The 1100 Waipoli Road farm is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and it’s free to visit.

Make a “one-of-a-kind” lavender wreath with fragrant, beautiful lavender picked fresh from the fields.

The farm will host the “Ultimate Family Fun Day” on Saturday, July 10, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is $5 per car.

Pot your own lavender, make a “Language of Flowers Bouquet” and see how lavender is distilled for oil.

The event will also feature face painting, treasure hunts, fun activities, live music, shave ice, hot dogs, hamburgers, kettle corn and a Watermelon Eating Contest.

Ever wonder if locally grown lettuce tastes fresher or if it’s more flavorful than lettuce imported to Maui? Do varieties of tomatoes taste different? Have you ever had grass-fed, all-natural Maui beef?

Learn more about the food you eat and the sheer pleasure found in food Grown on Maui at Family Fun Day. Join representatives from Slow Food Maui for Taste Education, a tasty event that will allow you to enjoy and learn about food locally grown on Maui.

Cost $5 for adults and children ten and older to sample, one time each, from four taste stations: varieties of tomatoes, beef, lettuces, and jams and jellies. 

Call 878-3004 or e-mail aklreservations@aklmaui.com to reserve your tour or lunch basket, register for a wreath making class or get directions.
