The Experience

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 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!


Adults - $120 | Kids 6-12 - $65 | Kids under 6 Free

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

- Steph M - Chicago, IL

Initially we were a bit apprehensive about so many new and different foods sourced right from our tour and the land. I have to say it was one of the best meals we had while in Kauai.
