I recently had a remarkable experience at Maui’s O’o Farm, an organic farm that lies on eight acres of pristine land which has been sustainably maintained and biodynamically cultivated. It is a true “farm-to-table” experience, starting with learning about the plants and trees on the property and the vision of the chefs, owners and farmers, to tasting the end result amidst organic gardens and the misting forest of Waipoli.
They’ve been around since 2000 when surfing buddies turned successful restaurateurs, Louis Coulombe and Stephan Bel-Robert purchased upcountry land with a citrus and stone fruit orchard and a few coffee trees. By upcountry, it means that they’re above the ocean and there’s a bit of a micro-climate that exists as a result.
While I was driving to the farm, the sun was beating and I was sleeveless but by the time I reached them not even 30 minutes later, I was ready to put on a light jacket and the air was cool and misty.
