Aloha and Happy 1st day of June!
Summer is around the corner here on the farm. The days are getting longer and warmer, the ocean swells are calming and the skies are sunny and blue. Typically summer is a time where Kaua'i is over-flowing with visitors enjoying our Garden Isle- the beaches, trails, farmer's markets, tours etc. This is how so many of you have met us and we've met you :) The current times are unprecedented. The island is quiet, we are staying home and our market booths and tours are on pause. We look forward to welcoming visitors once time allows.
Those of you who have visited our farm most likely met our family farm dog Bhakti. Our "Noni dog". One of his greatest joys was to eagerly wait at our upper orchard farm gate to meet tour guests, give you a sniff and usher you down so he could proudly slobber and show off just how well he ate the Noni Fruit Leather.
We wanted to share with you all that our beloved Bhakti passed away in the early morning over Memorial Day weekend. He's off running in the fields of light and soaring high. We truly feel blessed for the 17 years we shared with him and all the joy and love he brought to our lives.
We miss him dearly every day but know he will always be with us on the farm in spirit. He will forever be our "Noni dog" and will grace the front label of our Pet Noni Fruit Leather for all the days to come.
Name That Shama Contest!
Wow! Our Name That Shama Contest received by far the most entries out of any contest we've ever run! We had 538 entries total :) Since we received so many entries we had to arm-wrestle with Dylan to negotiate the naming of two of the babies instead of just one. So we have two names and 20 winners!
Meet Dusty and Dakota!
Congrats Judy, Kristin, Margie, Rhonda, Tamara, Mark, Sheila, Jill, Jan, Dianne, Linda, Patterson Family, Renata, Corrine, Ruth, Linda, Cindy, Patti, Jeff and Marilyn!
You've not only won yourself bragging rights but also your favorite noni product!
We will be following Dusty and Dakota as they grow up and those of you who take our farm tour will be able to meet them.
Summer Season Special
We are kicking off summer with a special tropical treat!
- A farm tour favorite
- It's delightful and oh-so delicious
- It's smooth, mild and full of nectar
- Truly one-of-a-kind
Can you guess? It's our Noni honey- summertime liquid sunshine.
We have worked with Chester for years, he's "The Bee Guy" on Kauai's north shore. The honeybees LOVE noni flowers and because noni blooms year-round these bees are very happy bees. Chester bottles this honey just for us. Due to limited supply we've only been able to share this deliciousness on our tours. Yes it goes that fast! With tours on pause for the foreseeable future, we're making this season's honey available on our website :)

I like sucking on the Noni Fruit Leather, letting it dissolve in my mouth and get absorbed under the tongue and into the body. Or simply dissolve in warm water to make a tea with a flavoring you like and drink to your health!
