Under a canopy of trees and next to the Olowalu Farmer’s Market and General Store, The Butterfly Farm drops you right in the flight house where butterflies flit from one flower to another. Just observe from afar, or take a cut flower (provided to guests before entering) to attract a butterfly up close. Sweet juice is provided for an even closer hands-on experience—a butterfly right on your fingertip! Keiki delight in learning about the life cycle of butterflies as well as their importance in the fabric of all living things. There’s also an educational critter corner to interact with other bugs and insects. Adults will appreciate the value of conservation, numerous photo opps, and the bonus lunch at Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop. Tours are about 45 minutes and kamaina rates are available.
