Coming from a private Oxford (UK) education in Animal Science and Agriculture, raising butterflies is something we have always been destined to do.
We are passionate about butterflies and local farming as well as educating those around us on how to create and maintain a healthy environment here in the Islands.
It is from these beliefs that The Maui Butterfly Farm was created!
Our organic family farm is nestled in the foothills of Olinda, Maui, Hawaii at an elevation of 2400' above sea level on the slopes of Mt Haleakala.
Our property consists of 100' eucalyptus trees, warm tropical breezes and a light mist of rain- the perfect recipe to keep our butterflies happy and healthy!
All of our caterpillars are fed on home grown organic plant matter and our butterflies are able to enjoy a huge array of tropical flowers which grow abundantly throughout our property.
Our butterflies are bred and raised in our temperature controlled, sterile, protected butterfly laboratory and multi facility workshop therefore unlike butterflies taken from the wild our butterflies are not affected by birds, predators or pesticides in any way.
Butterflies bring joy to everyone around them. Our tours promote education- not only education about the environment but education regarding insects, the benefits of butterflies and the ways in which to take care of our 'aina here in Hawaii.
