Kaua’i Sugarloaf Pineapple Farm Tour
- Adult Ages 13+
- Child Ages 5-12

Experience the ultimate pineapple farm tour in Kilauea, Hawaii!
The tour includes a brief history of our 37-acre farm, 15 acres of which are Kauai Sugarloaf White Pineapple. Participants will see over 250,000 plants in the ground and will learn the history of Sugarloaf pineapple in Hawaii as well as all aspects of growing pineapple.
Participants will see all stages, the red heart stage, the flowering stage, as well as ripening fruit, and Mother Nature permitting, each participant will harvest a small pineapple that they get to keep. Each participant will also have the opportunity to plant a pineapple. Mother Nature permitting, we will enjoy field tasting of freshly harvested pineapple, as nothing tastes as great as a Kauai Sugarloaf Pineapple fresh from the field!
The tour will conclude with the now-famous Paulie’s Pineapple Phrosty, a frozen delight made from only 100% Kauai Sugarloaf Pineapple, but tastes like ice cream – so much so that you’ll swear there has to be dairy and sugar in it! Souvenir t-shirts are available.
Paul, whose nickname is Paulie World, has many hours driving around in circles doing tractor work which is a perfect setup for inspired ideas. Tractor work is a long hot day, as are many of the days growing Kauai Sugarloaf Pineapple, and one day Paul thought we should try making frosties. He has enjoyed the banana and pineapple frosties at Banana Joe’s in Kilauea and he could barely wait to get off the tractor, buy a Champion Juicer, and freeze some fresh Kauaʻi Sugarloaf. This new way to enjoy Kauaʻi Sugarloaf Pineapple is indescribably delicious. It’s so creamy and so sweet you won’t believe there isn’t any sugar or cream added. In fact you’ll want to see it made to really believe this perfect summer dessert is just pure Sugarloaf.
The recipe is simplicity itself: 100% Kauaʻi Sugarloaf pineapple, picked at the peak of freshness, frozen, and pushed through a Champion juicer. The result is this creamy white, velvety smooth sweet delight that you will swear it is ice cream but we can assure you there is no dairy, no added sugar: just pure Sugarloaf.
We make Paulie’s Pineapple Phrosties at the KCC farmer’s market, and we think you will agree, they are something special! Of course, as always, we will have fresh picked, field ripened Kauaʻi Sugarloaf pineapple available for sale as well (and if you have a Champion juicer at home you can make these yourself).
Perfect for a hot summer day. Such a yummy treat. Especially great because it’s so good for you.
