Our Story

​Leah has operated Maui Bees Inc as a family business in Kula, Hawaii for over 10 years.  Leah shares a passion for bees and wholesome organically grown food to create a farming venture that was an immediate hit with the local community. Producing first quality garden fresh produce, organically raised pastured eggs and amazing Maui Honey, all available at the Kula farm stand.
    

Over the years Maui Bees has developed a stewardship model of farming 
techniques that reflects a solid commitment to regenerative farming. The farm
uses biodynamic sprays and preparations, builds all it’s own organic 
compost, inoculates the soil with beneficial microbes, and uses cover crops 
and “no till” mulches to build carbon in the soil.
    

The commitment to Maui Bees honey is second to none.  Always 
insisting on keeping it pure, unfiltered and raw. They use a 100% cold 
process that ensures the honey stays below room temperature. It takes a lot 
of extra time, energy and money to do things right. But I don’t mind 
because I have a passion for quality.  

​More  recently Maui Bees just completed a brand new commercial kitchen to produce value added foods and products from their farm. In addition to a wide range of fresh farm products, Maui Bees now offers a fabulous Farm to Table dinners using fresh produce from the farm’s gardens.

​Also new, the addition of a dedicated structure  “the bee museum” has ushered in an educational component to the farm. Visitors can learn all about the inner workings of a living bee hive.  The farm offers hands on “honey bee tours “ as well as “ regenerative agriculture tours” for visitors who want a more in-depth educational experience.  The farm also offers structured educational programs to school groups of all ages.

​​Maui Bees Inc. was created to serve the local community and have made many friends in the process. They have dedicated staff who work and live on the farm as well as interns and volunteers who come to learn and grow with them.
