  • Hawaiian Vanilla Experience Luncheon

    Come and join us for our most popular offering–the Hawaiian Vanilla Experience Luncheon! We promise to fill all of your senses; taste, smell, touch, hear, see and learn all about vanilla and the journey we have been on since we bought our first vanilla plant in 1998!

    We provide our signature Provincial lunch; orange-vanilla marinated breast and carmelized onions atop herbed focaccia bread, with our Vanilla-Mango Chutney aioli, Way South West roasted red potatoes, farm fresh organic greens with our best selling Vanilla-Raspberry Vinaigrette, crumbled feta and Vanilla-Honey-Peppered Pecans. We don’t skimp on vanilla! Also enjoy our classic Vanilla Lemonade or Vanilla Tea with your lunch.
    After a presentation and introduction to vanilla, join the group for a short walk to our vanillery–our second acre of shade houses on the farm. When you return, enjoy some Hawaiian Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with one of our specialty dessert toppings–a delicious ending!

    During the luncheon Jim provides an in-depth look at how vanilla is grown and why Hawaiian Vanilla Company’s vanilla is such a unique and delicious treat!

    ***Please note: The walk can be difficult for some people. We are located on the lower slopes of Mauna Kea and the roads can be steep. Weather can be inclement and proper footwear is highly recommended.

    The cost for the Luncheon is $39/pp and $15/pp for children ages 4 – 12.
    Children age 3 and under Free.

    Luncheons are offered most Wednesdays and Thursdays and Fridays.

    Featured Teaching Tours – Manoa Honey Company

    The Manoa Honey Company is owned by Michael Kliks, Ph.D., who also serves as president of the Hawaii Beekeepers Association. Kliks, like many producers, is quite passionate about his honey and is working to revise honey labeling requirements in Hawaii.

    The Manoa Honey Company oversees apiaries across Oahu and Hawaii island, including the remote uplands of Waikane Valley, the coastal forests of Nanakuli and Kalaeloa, the upland forests of Mauna Loa and remote Kau, and the Waianae and Koolau mountains. Honeys include: Waikane Golden, a light amber honey with a floral flavor; Crater Kiawe and Kiawe Cream, smooth amber honeys that naturally tend to “cream” after they have been processed by the bees; Ohia Lehua and Ohia Lehua Crème, full-bodied, rich honeys with a buttery-floral flavor; and Pele’s Gold, unfiltered, unheated honey that retains the biological activity of its natural enzymes, yeasts, pollens, waxes, antioxidants, trace elements and vitamins.

    These honeys are available at Executive Chef, The Compleat Kitchen, Down to Earth stores, R. Field Wine Co. at Foodland Beretania, Umeke Market, Kokua Market, the Source Natural Foods, Shirokiya, Longs Moiliili and Manoa and the Waioli Tea Room.
