On this Hawaiian farmland, everything is a circleGingerhill Farm Retreat offers unique farm-to-table experience

After one year and eight months, I finally started traveling again. My first trip since Pandemic was to revisit a place on the Big Island of Hawaii called Gingerhill Farm . In November, 2018, I stayed at the Sunset Suite of this farm which I randomly found on Airbnb, that’s how I met the female Japanese painter, the farm owner Mayumi Oda. At that time, I only stayed for three days. At the farewell moment, she said, ‘Please come again and stay a bit longer.’ I said I will.”
