About Us
Patty McCartney, family and friends make this agriculture adventure possible. Deep in the remote Valleys of Eastern Moloka`i cultivating a small bit of land that produces vanilla beans along with other assorted exotic fruits and nuts, Avocados, Star fruit, mangoes coffee and more. Natural and resilient farming practices are used to grow nutrious food and spices.
Practices
Learning how to grow and pollinate vanilla flowers, a member of the orchid family, was a long sometimes exasperating endeavor. With encouragement and assistance from family, friends from Vermont to Rapa Nui, UH scientists and funders who belived in this project a new farming product was developed for Moloka`i. There is value in a vanilla bean and creative ways to develop value added products soon appeared at the farmers market. Moloka`i Hawai`i Vanilla is available in limited quantities.
