Our Maui apple bananas and ice cream bananas

Banana Chips

One of our favorite activities on the farm is harvesting and dehydrating our very own organic Maui apple banana chips.

An apple banana is a variety of bananas that grow in Hawaii. They are small and tasty. When they are dried they become sweet as sugar.

Due to popular demand, we are now packaging and selling our banana chips for the public. Stay tuned for a store near you carrying our "candy-like" chips.

Banana Chips for Sale

Buy a 3.5 oz bag of our delicious banana chips and help support our farm!

A wwoocher (wwoofing bocher) davening shacharis on the farm

Wwoofing

Wwoof stands for "World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms". A wwoofer is someone who volunteers on a farm in exchange for room and board.

 

We are slowly building our kosher wwoofing program for the adventurous farm-curious young men and women (separately) looking for a kosher and shomer Shabbos experience in a chasidishe environment.

Wwoofers sleep in tents, cook their own meals and help out with farming, animals, building and planting for a few hours a day on the farm, affording them to time to explore the island and learn with fellow Jews.

MKF Summer 

Adventure

Imagine a summer program in the Hawaiian jungle with a cozy group of young Jewish girls for a once in a lifetime experience!

 

Geared for teenaged girls between the ages of 12-15, MKF (Maui Kosher Farm) Summer Adventure is an extreme 3 week program on our farm and exploring Maui.

This is not your typical tourist trip to Maui. Your girls will eat, sleep and breathe like a local and get a "backstage pass" to the island. 

Registration for summer 2020 opens in December.

Home on the Farm

This years MKF Summer Adventure will find our girls sleeping in tents, bathing in outdoor showers and spending much of their time on our farm in the lush West Maui Mountains. 

 

We will learn how to milk goats, feed goats, sheep, chickens, ducks & quails, build fires, plant pineapples, chop coconuts, harvest macadamia nuts, make banana chips, sprout seeds and chop down banana plants.

Daily chores will be given out and girls will be responsible for their tasks of the day.

Arts and Creativity

Maui is known as one of the art capitals of the US. 

 

Jewish and Hawaiian alike, a handful of these artists will teach our girls the art of Japanese print making and scarf dying, lei necklace creating, hula dancing, professional photography skills and more.

Cooking and baking lessons abound for the girls inclined towards the culinary arts.

Exploring the Island

Weekly trips take us to these spectacular sites: 

 

  • Climbing Haleakala's 10,000 foot crater 

  • Swimming in waterfalls

  • Snorkeling with sea turtles

  • Hiking bamboo forests 

  • Body boarding in warm Maui beaches

  • Exploring the Iao Valley

 

We use every opportunity possible to make Yiddishkeit come to life and infuse Hashem's world with meaning and connection.
