Macadamia Nut Farm
Hawaii Turtle Tours take you to many parts of the Island of Oahu and a great stop they make along the way is to Tropical Farms Macadamia Nut Farm. Tropical Farms initially began as a roadside outlet for macadamia nuts in 1987. It was a very convenient spot as there was a lot of traffic that took Kamehameha Highway. Plus having the Pacific Ocean in the backyard doesn’t hurt either. What began as a husband and wife business just cracking open, sorting by variety, and packaging them up in bundles turned into a full on operation.
The couple went from selling fresh macadamia nuts on the hood of a car to outlet store with free samples of tasty macadamia delights and souvenirs for tourists. Today, Tropical Farms operates from 9:30am to 5pm every day of the week and is a great place to pull over and explore. Tour buses stop here often so it can get a little crowded inside. Yet the shop has an open air feel and a lot of energy flowing through.
They have tasting samples for a plethora of hot sauces in addition to macadamia nuts. There’s also free cups of Kona Macadamia Nut coffee to enjoy while you peruse through their different selections. They also offer pearl jewelry, art, creams, and aromatic oils you won’t find in Waikiki. Outback you can still get a feel for nature while also enjoying one of their activities. You can grab your own macadamia nuts and crack them open with a rock and eat them straight out of the shell! So tag along on the Turtle Tour and take a stop at Tropical Farms Macadamia Nut Farm.
