Hoʻopulapula Haraguchi Taro Farm Tour

Food & Drink in Hanalei

Learn about cultivating taro on Kaua‘i at this sixth-generation family-run nonprofit farm. Three-hour farmer-guided tours take you out into the lo‘i kalo (waterlogged taro fields), offering a small glimpse of the otherwise inaccessible Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge and demonstrating the processes involved in preparing the crop.

The historic Hoʻopulapula Haraguchi Rice Mill, the last operative rice mill in Hawaii, was badly damaged in the flooding of 2018; tours now tell the full story, with receipts dedicated towards its eventual restoration.

Tours gather at the Hanalei Taro & Juice Co food truck on Kuhio Hwy.
