Kaua’i was formed by volcanic activity over six million years ago. All of that rich lava, together with a tropical climate, has earned this Hawaiian island the nickname “Garden Isle.” Sugar cane is no longer the major industry like it was in the early 19th century. However, agriculture still plays a significant role in their economy. Crops include cacao, coffee, vanilla beans, mango, papaya, Macadamia nuts, star fruit and pineapple. What a perfect place to have a farm with the backdrop of the Makaleha Mountains.
