Off The Grid with Great Produce

For many years we had delivered to our home in South Maui the most amazing produce from Laulima Farm in Hana--Kipahulu to be more exact. For $25 a large box we received delicious organic fruit and vegetables farmed by the Rudolf Steiner method.

However, the price of gas went up, and the farm could no longer make a profit driving their fruit all the way from Hana to South Maui, so the days of delicious organic produce being delivered to us were over.

However, Laulima Farm is still in business, and if you visit them, you can ride the bicycle as the girl in the photo is doing to produce the energy for your own sweet juice!

When we visited recently, I asked for a fresh coconut, and the girl behind the counter took out her machete, and opened up one for me and put a straw in it so I could drink the delicious, fresh coconut juice. Then she chopped it open, and sliced the interior of the coconut so we could eat the yummy chunks of fresh coconut.

The people in this section of Maui live "off the grid", and that's exactly the way they like it and why they live there. The energy is so much better when you're off the grid. You have to experience it to feel the difference.

Fresh produce and fruits sound wonderful. This farm would get my business if it was on the mainland. Alas it isn't so i will just have to drool at the pictures.

Is the coffee good?

I have a friend who is a flight attendant and I remember him bringing me back a bag of Kona coffee once. It was one of the best coffee I've ever had.
