You will be able to pick and eat from the gardens. You may also respectfully pick fruit from the orchards within the farm guidelines.
There is no on-site washing machine.
Children or pets are not allowed to stay on the farm. If family or friends are visiting, they are always welcome to come to the farm and check it out.
The “Moloa’a Fruit Stand” bus stop is less than a 15 minute walk from the farm. The bus leaves every hour. Since there is only one main road, it is very easy to get around the island. The bus fare is $2.00. The only airport on Kauai is Lihue airport. When you arrive, you can either take the bus that will bring you right to the fruit stand near the farm, or a pick you up from the airport can be arranged for you.
