Experience the abundance of a tropical permaculture food forest
Join us for a walking tour of our regenerative farm, garden and orchards, then afterward enjoy a fresh fruit tasting or farm to table meal in our beautiful, open-air kitchen and dining area. It’s the perfect adventure for all ages.
Starseed Ranch presents a 1-hour farm tour through the HIP Agriculture educational farm and gardens, a sensory experience of touching, smelling and photographing a variety of fruit, vegetables, flowers, medicinal plants, bamboos and tropical hardwoods. We will visit our orchards with a variety of tropical fruit trees (mango, papaya, avocado, breadfruit, lemon, orange, coconut) and walk through tropical food forests planted with traditional polynesian crops (kalo, turmeric, bananas, plantains).
We will end the tour with a small fruit tasting or farm to table meal prepared by one of our resident chefs. Our menus feature food naturally grown right here on our farm and others nearby. A farm to table meal enables guests to fully experience crops and dishes that highlight Hawai’i’s tropical fusion cuisine. A unique offering and truly authentic experience that we are honored to be able to share with our community and guests visiting Hawai’i Island.
Thank you for supporting local farmers. Income from our farm tours and farm to table meals supports our educational programs and food production. Learn more about the Hawai’i Institute of Pacific Agriculture, our nonprofit organization focused on regenerative agriculture education.
“We love to share about our passion for healthy locally grown foods and the many plant medicines that surround us.”
