Mother Theresa once said “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.”
And here in Volcano, Hawai’i, the Lili House Farm embodies this concept.
Nestled on the slopes of majestic Mauna Loa, the Lili House Farm is a 20-acre family farm in the agricultural area of Volcano on Hawai’i Island. In the rural beauty of this corner of Hawai’i, stress melts away in the gentle sun shining down on a lush stretch of land that is home to cows, chickens, baby bunnies, pigs, goats, lambs, and more!
Visitors to Lili House are greeted with an aloha from Danielle and Kainoa Iranon, where your first taste of the farm begins as you sip warm tea in front of an outdoor fireplace in between bites of homemade berry scones, freshly baked by Danielle and her daughter, Kiana. As you begin the farm tour, you’ll quickly realize that a visit to the Lili House Farm is more than a photo opp.
“At the Lili House Farm, we believe that as we are good stewards of the land, it will be a source that gives back to us in many ways,” says Hawai’i Island-born and raised Kainoa Iranon. “This is something we love to share with the people who visit in hopes of inspiring them to do the same.”
And now there are more ways than ever to be inspired during your time at Lili House! With over 20 years of active experience working in farm settings, Kainoa, Danielle, and their six kids, Kiana, Isaiah, Tryton, Aurelius, Legend, and Valor, are passionate about showing residents and visitors alike just how easy it is to make loving connections with nature and animals that dissolve stress, bring comfort, and create memories that last a lifetime.
