Nice experience for food lovers.

We returned to the Vanilla Farm this trip since we enjoyed it so much last trip. The food was wonderful and the tour was better than before.

Great combination of activities surrounding the Vanilla Company tour. Welcoming drinks, lunch, cooking demonstration, tour, lecture and dessert and coffee in the store made for an interesting 2 hours. Highly recommend.

This was one of our many farm tours on the Big Island. You have choices of the tour only, a high tea and tour, or a lunch with food made with vanilla and a tour. We chose the lunch and it was some of the best food that we've had on our vacation. This is a family business. The eldest... More

This is the only place in the U.S. where you can see vanilla grown. That is cool, but what we really liked was the family that owns and runs the farm. They are super nice and creative.

We never knew how complex and interesting growing vanilla beans could be until we took this amazing tour of the Hawaiian Vanilla farm. We took the 1:00p Farm Tour for $25, and not only learned so much from Ian, the owner's son and our tour guide, but also enjoyed complementary vanilla lemonade and vanilla ice cream. Great value! Lovely gift... More

This has become another favourite place to visit. Always buy some vanilla to take back home for baking and we always have some vanilla icecream while there. Staff are always friendly.
