Our Story

​Mark and Leah Damon have operated Maui Bees Inc as a family business in 
Kula, Hawaii for the past 10 years.  When they first met, Mark and Leah combined their shared passion for bees and wholesome organically grown food to create a  joint farming venture that was an immediate hit with the local community. They produce first quality garden fresh produce, organically fed pastured eggs and amazing Maui Honey, all available at their Kula farm stand.

Over the years they have 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.

Their commitment to their honey is second to none. They have always 
insisted 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 they don’t mind 
because they have a passion for quality.  

​More  recently they 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, their resident culinary chef now offers a fabulous to go menu of organic entrees and soups 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 watch bees safely behind the glass walls of two observation hives and 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.

​​Mark and Leah created Maui Bees Inc. 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.
