A Visit to Kula’s Maui Nui Farm Stand

maui.nui.farmSaturday was a beach day, filled with tidepooling and monk seal watching at Hookipa Beach Park, which meant that Sunday was a great day for relaxing Upcountry.  It never ceases to amaze me that it can be hot, blazing sunny and cranking windy in Paia, and we can drive uphill for twenty minutes to Kula, where we can relax outside under the shade of thick cloud cover, with no wind, enjoying a climate that is several degrees cooler.   Its like a different world.  And since my kids can eat their weight in tropical fruit, we made our first visit to the Maui Nui Farm Stand.

Outside of the farm stand is their food truck, Nui’s Garden Kitchen, which we didn’t get to try this visit so no reviews today (but if you’ve been – leave a review in the comments!).  We did fill up our bags with beets, kale, apple bananas, papayas and star fruit for only $15, which seemed really reasonable for the quantity that we walked out with.

Beyond the farm stand are rows and rows of produce and flowers, giving comfort that the produce is fresh and authentically local. According to their website they have 40 acres!   They offered all kinds of greens, fruits, potatoes, eggs, breads, cookies, flowers and more.  There are also water lilly ponds and all kinds of colorful flowers upon the entry.

Maui Nui Farm Stand is open Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 5pm.  (and here are my Maui-style directions-Turn off the highway where the Kula Hardware store is – then take a left instead of a right – you’ll see the signs- or click here to view the map) On Tuesdays and Fridays, they are selling produce at TJs Oriental Food Mart behind the Old Kahului Mall.   They also offer tours of their farm, and catering for weddings and private events.
