Farm Tours

Experience the abundance of a tropical permaculture food forest
Join us for a walking tour of the garden and orchards and then enjoy a farm fresh meal served in our beautiful open-air kitchen and dining space. It’s the perfect adventure for all ages.

HIP Agriculture presents a 1-hour farm tour through the Starseed Ranch property, a sensory experience of touching, smelling and photographing a variety of fruit, flowers, medicines, bamboos and tropical hardwoods. We will visit a 6-acre orchard with a variety of tropical fruit trees (mango, papaya, avocado, breadfruit, lemon, lime, coconut) and walk through tropical food forests planted with traditional polynesian crops (kalo, turmeric, bananas, plantains).

We will end the tour with a farm fresh snack or farm to table meal prepared by one of our resident chefs. Our menus highlight food grown on our farm and others nearby. A farm to table meal enables guests to fully experience crops and dishes that highlight Hawai’i’s fusion cuisine. This is a unique offering and a 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 directly supports our educational programs and food production by providing the farm with additional economic avenues.

“We love to share about our passion for healthy locally grown foods and the many plant medicines that surround us.”

– Dash & Erika Kuhr
