Come and join us for our most popular offering--the Hawaiian Vanilla Experience Luncheon! We promise to fill all of your senses; taste, smell, touch, hear, see and learn all about vanilla and the journey we have been on since we bought our first vanilla plant in 1998!

We provide our signature Provincial lunch; orange-vanilla marinated breast and carmelized onions atop herbed focaccia bread, with our Vanilla-Mango Chutney aioli, Way South West roasted red potatoes, farm fresh organic greens with our best selling Vanilla-Raspberry Vinaigrette, crumbled feta and Vanilla-Honey-Peppered Pecans. We don't skimp on vanilla! Also enjoy our classic Vanilla Lemonade or Vanilla Tea with your lunch.
After a presentation and introduction to vanilla, join the group for a short walk to our vanillery--our second acre of shade houses on the farm. When you return, enjoy some Hawaiian Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with one of our specialty dessert toppings--a delicious ending!

During the luncheon Jim provides an in-depth look at how vanilla is grown and why Hawaiian Vanilla Company's vanilla is such a unique and delicious treat!
