O’o Farm is a working farm in Upcountry Maui, where you can take a tour, pick your own vegetables, and eat a gourmet lunch that includes the vegetables that you picked.
This farm is at the 3500-foot elevation on the slope of Haleakala, in Kula, Maui’s agricultural district. There are great views from here, out to the central valley of Maui, including both its north and south coasts. On the eight acres of O’o Farm, there are coffee and fruit trees, fields of rows of lettuce and garden vegetables, and greenhouses growing tomatoes, herbs, and flowers. The produce grown here supplies one restaurant, one luau, and one shop on the west side of Maui: Pacific O restaurant, the Feast at Lele luau, and the Aina Gourmet Market.
Tours of O’o Farm are by advance reservation only. There are two types of farm tours available. The “Seed to Cup Gourmet Breakfast Tour” lasts three hours and begins at 8:30 AM. You will taste and learn all about the growing, processing, roasting, and preparation of their French press coffee, and have a gourmet breakfast. The “Gourmet Lunch Tour” lasts three hours and begins at 10:30 AM. On this tour, you will walk through the fields of vegetables, picking your own vegetables that will be used to make parts of your gourmet lunch. You will be walking in the dirt, so wear old shoes that can get muddy. It’s cooler at this elevation than at the beach, so dress a little warmer.
The menu varies, but on the day that I went on the lunch tour, these are the foods we were served: herbed focaccia bread with olive oil and sea salt, salad made from the fresh vegetables that we picked ourselves, lemon preserve vinaigrette salad dressing, herb rubbed fresh catch fish with green puree, coffee cherry allspice rubbed chicken, roasted root vegetables, society garlic, coffee cherry chocolate decadence cake, bananas, avocado, citrus fruit. The vegetarians in our tour group were served coffee cherry glazed tofu, sprouted legumes, braised greens, celeriac curry.
To book either of the tours, breakfast or lunch, call O’o Farm at 808-667-4341.
