Quickly becoming a favorite for visitors and locals alike and as written about in  Cosmopolitan, Forbes and AFAR. Common Ground's Farm and Food Experience offers a showcase of what grows on Kauai in our regenerative food forest: A collection of exotic and delicious foods brought to Hawai`i from all corners of the globe. Coffee, pineapple, tree tomato, kava, mamak'i, heart of palm, papaya, bananas, and more! More importantly it demonstrates a model for how food can be grown in harmony(regeneratively) with nature, planted in concert so there is no need for imported fertilizers and pesticides. We discuss why Hawai'i shouldn't need to import 85+% of its food on a boat and what a robust local food system can do for communities everywhere. We believe a meal on Kauai should be unique and represent the abundance, flavors and cultures of the island. The tour concludes with a light family style meal to savor and enjoy while celebrating the delicious diversity that exists on Kauai all while exploring our mission here at Common Ground. 100% Island sourced because it should be, from the cooking oil to the seasonings. Feel free to grab beer or wine from the bar to relax into a perfect island evening in a beautiful tropical farm setting.  We welcome children of all ages!

Customer Reviews

Fabulous time at Common Ground - Our visit to Common Ground was a highlight of our time in Kauai. The farm tour was super interesting/informative and the meal that followed was absolutely delicious - lamb & veggie stew plus homemade lemonade! 

- Steph M - Chicago, IL

Absolutely Amazing!!! - Great food and farm tour. These people need to be applauded for their efforts at creating a fully sustainable regenerative farm. 

- Lynn B - Standish Me

Great way to learn more about responsible ag - Our concierge recommended this tour, and it was well worth it. Kauai is a great location to test ideas about growing food more sustainably, given its ideal growing conditions.

- Fremont, CA

A great Kauai evening activity! Kauai has so many great activities but Common Ground's food forest is not just focusing on a single crop like Kauai chocolate tours, and is for those traveling to Kauai who want to connect deeper. Kids and families are welcome - there are no age restrictions! Kids can sample the flowers, feed the chickens, and cow and help to fertilizer the farm!
