More farm­ers in Hawaii are of­fer­ing tours

The Hamilton Spectator - - TRAVEL -

Many farm­ers in Hawaii are boost­ing prof­its by of­fer­ing tours of their op­er­a­tions.

Steve Frai­ley, who has owned and op­er­ated a farm on Kauai with his fam­ily for 30 years, said ed­u­cat­ing vis­i­tors is the goal, but bring­ing tourists to his land also helps mar­ket his prod­ucts and keep the farm afloat.

Frai­ley and his fam­ily started the free farm tours three years ago. Vis­i­tors “learn about what we do, about noni and or­ganic farm­ing. They have this great learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and then there’s a chance to buy our prod­ucts at a dis­counted rate.”
