One Of The Country’s Only Vanilla Farms Is Hidden Right Here In Hawaii

Most people are surprised to learn that the Hawaiian Islands are home to countless incredible farms, ranches, and sprawling fields. From macadamia nut and local coffee farms to cattle ranches, organic spirit distilleries, and even honey bee and goat dairy operations, Hawaiian Islands are home to countless incredible agricultural ventures. And while these farms are all truly one-of-a-kind, this little-known destination stands out in a class all its own. One of the country’s only vanilla farms is found right here in Hawaii, and yes, it is as charming as it sounds.
