Tropical Farms is a country home that was transformed into a lovely store. Hundreds of visitors stop each day either by car or motor coach on their way to the Polynesian Cultural Center or on a circle island tour around Oahu. It is an ideal place to stretch and use the restroom since it is almost the half-way point around the island. As visitors approach the entrance, they are warmly greeted by Tropical Farm’s friendly staff and invited to try free samples of their coffee and macadamia nuts. The unsalted macadamia nuts are my favorite.
Original art such as watercolor paintings by local artists is featured. The decor inside the store reminds visitors of Hawaii’s old plantation days. The mementos from the ’40′s and ’50′s posted on the walls of the store give the atmosphere a personal touch.
The owner of Tropical Farms, Mr. Paty, has been able to fulfill what visitors read about in Hawaiian travel brochures. He and his helpful staff and authentic offerings truly deliver and radiate the spirit of aloha which makes everyone feel comfortable and secure. He takes visitors out of their hurried pace and lets the natural surroundings of Hawaii making shopping fun and memorable.
Tropical Farms is a refreshing stop that gives visitors a glimpse of Hawaii is supposed to look and feel like. Even as a small store, Tropical Farms weave scenes together into an unfolding story of Hawaii — a story that make each item in the store seem especially valuable. All other shopping on the island just offer a boring, ‘big-box’ experience.
