At Pali Nana Farms we strive to provide a top of the line Hawaiian adventure at affordable prices but our primary focus is on your safety.


We want you to know how seriously we consider your safety and we take extra precautions to ensure it because Hawaii is an inherently risky state.

We do daily inspections of all the animals, equipment and physical plant. Warning signs are posted throughout the farm and please be sure to read the risk waiver you’ll be signing. 


Please inform your tour guide if you feel there  is any way we could improve the safety of the farm.
