Historic Rice Mill & Taro Farm Tours
9:45 AM ON WEDNESDAYS **RESERVATIONS REQUIRED** (Dates subject to change, special tours & private tours are possible by reservation only. Please contact us for your reservation).
Visit Hawai`i's ONLY remaining Rice Mill (listed on the National Register of Historic Places), where the past meets the present. Tucked away on a working wetland taro farm on Kaua`i's dramatically scenic North Shore, the Haraguchi Rice Mill is found within a National Wildlife Refuge, usually not accessible to the public. Learn about Hawai`i's agriculture and cultural history, view endangered native water birds, and explore the cultivation and uses of taro, a traditional Polynesian food source. Then enjoy a complementary picnic lunch featuring unique items prepared with taro grown on the very farm you visit.
We offer only guided tours every Wednesday at 10am, check in 9:45am (call for days & times, subject to change, excluding Thanksgiving, Christmas, & New Year's Day). Due to the limited amount of spaces, RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED and refunds are issued ONLY if a tour is cancelled by the Rice Mill. Please see your concierge for booking & costs, if its not available at your concierge, please contact us direct at email@example.com or (808)651-3399.
