The Ali'i Kula Lavender Farm is a 13.5-acre farm growing a wide array of lavender varieties as well as other plants such as olives, hydrangea, protea, succulents and other native Hawaiian plants. It is located in Kula, about 4,000 feet atop the slopes of Mt. Haleakala in East Maui, Hawaii.
The farm was established by Agricultural Artist and Horticultural Master Ali’i Chang in 1988 and was opened to the public in 2002. It features approximately 55,000 lavender plants and 45 different varieties. Lavender is not endemic to Hawaii but Ali'i was able to make the plants thrive in his farm, blooming profusely in spring and summer. Seven varieties bloom all year round!

The tours give guests opportunities to get acquainted with different lavender varieties and experience their calming and relaxing properties.
