Kahumana Organic Farm & Cafe

Today we took a drive along the beautiful Waianae coast and deep into the valley for a visit to Kahumana Organic Farm. It took less than 30 minutes from Makakilo and Nomz and I got there early so we strolled through the farm and talked about how veggies grow. This non-profit farm community is set against the stunning backdrop of the Waianae mountain range and is a beautiful land of fresh veggies, free range chickens, and lots and lots of butterflies.

The cafe is open for lunch and dinner and is housed at the main building. The compound consists of the restaurant/kitchen, office, a house that can be rented for retreats, and what look like several staff residences.

At the entrance, there is sitting area and a retail space where you can buy fresh veggies and free-range organic eggs.

There are indoor, lanai, and outdoor seating areas. If you have small children, the outdoor area is great because they can run around and swing on the large tree swing while the mommies enjoy lunch, which is what we did today.

The menu is limited, but showcases the variety of fresh and flavorful veggies from the farm. Stir-fries, salads, and a macadamia nut pesto pasta are the main dishes. I ordered the Macadamia Nut Pesto Pasta ($12) and added on grilled ahi ($5). The pasta was whole wheat with lots of sautéed vegetables, and just tasted very fresh and healthy.

The pasta comes with a soup or salad:

Here is the Greek salad (I think).

And for dessert they have various ice creams, brownie and lilikoi cheesecake ($3.50).

If you want to get out of the city and recharge with fresh air and a healthy organic meal, come over to the Westside! If you have small children, you can give yourself a farm tour and visit the chicken coop to create your own mini field trip with yummy lunch.
