We have been very busy, for the holiday rush. We added two great young men to the crew at Hole in the Mountain Farm, home of Kauai Sugarloaf Pineapple. Paul and I, our little terrier Panda, Jake, and Keola have been working day and night picking, washing, wrapping, packing, and shipping every last Kauai Sugarloaf Pineapple available to fulfill the heavy seasonal demand.
Santa’s elves flew down and even the little menehune came out of the hidden valleys and forests of Hawaii to help get everyone their Christmas pineapple delivered in time to celebrate the holidays. This year we ran into a problem that even the elves and the menehune couldn’t fix: we ran out of ripe fruit!
But I knew I had the most wonderful customer base in the world so I emailed a few of my customers to ask if I could ship them a partial order in time for Christmas and the remainder of the order in February when we will be harvesting again. They all said yes! Once again proving I have the most wonderful customer base anyone could ever hope for.
We’re very happy growing Kauai Sugarloaf Pineapple: it’s a dream come true for me and my husband and our little dog seems to love the pineapple fields as well. After packing every last order I literally had one two pound pineapple left over. We will leave that out for Santa with his cookies.
Merry Christmas one and all!
