Bhakti says: Eat your noni fruit leather
This is Pet Month. Yeah!! Be sure to love your animal friends with lots of kindness and Noni. My daughter, Lola, was jogging on the farm and took this photo of Bhakti, our Australian Shepard mix, who is King of the Farm as the photo shows. She jogs and he sits and watches!!
He is the highlight of every Farm Tour as he comes bounding over the visit the group and show off how he eats Noni Fruit Leather. He is always jumping from person to person, sniffing and smelling, until I pull out of my back pocket the bag with Noni Fruit Leather. He immediately comes over to me and sits down looking very intently at the bag of Noni. Everyone on the Tour is amazed at his focus and the display of him eating Noni Fruit Leather. He loves it!!
This past weekend, we hosted a special Farm Tour and catered lunch under a Tent for 25 Veterinarians that were holding a conference on Kauai. It was lots of fun to share with them the many potential uses of our organic Noni products on their clients (Pets). We spent all morning talking about the true traditional use (eating Noni raw for maximum potency), published research and walking the Farm looking a how Noni grows.
It was a great day and we hope to learn many more usages from them in the future as the use our Noni.
Farm tour with Lihue Christian Academy School
Several weeks ago, we had the pleasure of doing an all day Farm Tour with 25 kids and parents from the Lihue Christian Academy. The kids are always very happy to take the Tour, see the farm and the Noni Orchards. We spend quite a bit of time going over why we are an Organic Farm and explaining the principles of organic farming. We go into depth on the many benefits of mulching and how we make our potent compost. They love seeing our “Worm Hotels” , with all the Indian Blue worms turning garbage into dynamite “black gold” (worm castings). We also cover Foliar spraying with our Compost Teas made in our Growing Solutions Compost Tea maker. Naturally, we talk at length about the wonderful healing properties of Noni and finish by walking the orchards.
The highlight of the day was Bhakti, our Noni eating dog. Each student fed him Noni Fruit Leather to their amazement and his delight!!
New Story of the Month
The attendance at our M,W, F Farm Tour has really began to increase due to the great reviews on Trip Advisor and tourist finding our Organic Noni products at the local Farmer’s Markets. The new experience for us is; at every tour there is at least one newcomer that speaks up to the group with their recent “Testimonial”. They usually begin with, “I was at this Farmer’s Market two days ago, the lady at the Market put this lotion on me and I am here to tell you it works. I had to come on the Tour and learn more about Noni.”
This kind of feedback makes our time and effort growing Noni worth it. Extremely rewarding.
Nani Noni Update
Nani Noni – the noni tree we all named this year is growing new limbs and already setting fruit.
