Hawaii Farm

What to bring

For your Hawaii Farm experience, we recommend you bring:

 

Clothes

  • Plenty of work clothes. Both the soil and the bananas stain fabric a light brown color. We recommend long-sleeve lightweight, breathable clothes. Expect to change shirts regularly.
  • Sunhat.
  • Sturdy shoes and or rain boots. Water-proof is nice on dewy mornings.
  • Workout/ yoga wear.
  • Rain Coat if during rainy season. Ask.
  • Bathing suit.
  • Sturdy sandals or Crocs.
  • Bath towels.

 

Toiletries

  • Non-toxic insect repellant.

  • Biodegradable toothpaste, soaps and

    shampoo/ conditioner.

  • Non-toxic mosquito coils or citronella candles.

  • Water bottle.

Hawaii Farm Tools

 

We recommend the following tools:

Machete with Scabbard

We like the Tramontina 14-18 inch version. My personal preference is 16″  with a wooden handle. We advise a scabbard as well. Other brands will also serve you well. But we recommend one with a sharp tip as opposed to other shapes. Remember that the bolo styles will be hard to fit in a scabbard. Here in Hawaii, Lowes sells an 18inch version with a nylon scabbard for $20. It can also be found on Amazon. Click Here for the link.

Pruners with carrying case.

You can pay as much as $50 for a Felco version but my friend Antonio said he’s had his for 17 years and never sharpened them once. I have other friends that swear by these Japanese pruners:

They are a great deal at around $30 and come in three sizes. Click Here for link.

 

I have had a pair of this ARS version for the past two years and they have served me well. They run about $50 – $60. Click Here for link.

Don’t forget to get a carrying case with a clip for your belt or you will be losing them in the grass!
