Lyndsay gave a great tour of the family business as well as decades of history. In addition we got some good hands-on activities in the taro patch as well as tastings. Definitely a very worthwhile tour!

Britney and Lyndsey were great. Even though you are in a group of 25 Brit and Lyndsey kept everyone engaged. Too bad we could not spend more time in the fields but the history was great to hear about.

This was a very informative tour. I loved the history and the education about the current struggles faced by the farmers. The food was delish.
