We have moved to a new location! We are now located at 820 Olowalu Village Rd, next to the Olowalu General Store on the way to Lahaina!

We are the oldest butterfly farm in Hawaii and the only one that offers private tours of a butterfly farm in the State. We are a certified Monarch Waystation and strive to save the butterflies through propagation, research and education. We’re the only place in the Islands to see live Hawaiian butterflies in our walk in butterfly flight house. Unlike Mainland butterfly farms, all of our butterflies are home bred and hand raised on our organic farm. We do not purchase or ship in our butterflies from abroad, therefore all of our butterflies are endemic to Hawaii.

We had a great time at the Maui Butterfly Farm. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable. She showed us how to feed the Butterflies with nectar and Soon they were landing on the flowers and feeding from our hands. If you are a butterfly fan, you will find it interesting.
located near a good farm stand and Leoda's pie shop.
Magical monarchs!

This was one of my favorite things I did in Maui. Absolutely fantastic. The staff was so knowledgeable and those little caterpillars and butterflies miraculous. So interesting to hear about their life cycle. Great photo opportunities as they give you a hibiscus flower to hold that attracts the butterflies. And the praying mantis were incredible. They sat on my hand too!
A short, but very lovely tour

I saw the sign by the side of the road, checked into tickets and ended up going the next day. It's a small venue, but a very nice surprise. I love butterflies and was able to learn about the different stages of the butterflies, hold a monarch caterpillar, walk through a butterfly house with so many beautiful butterflies and hold a praying mantis. It was a short tour, but if you love to photograph butterflies, or just hang out with them, then this place is for you. The staff were all very knowledgeable and pleasant. Definitely check them out!

We ended up doing this tour when another tour was cancelled due to weather. Pleasantly surprised with how much fun this was. The kids loved holding caterpillars, butterflies and the praying mantis. They had so many questions and the tour guide had all the answers! The staff was kind and informative. We would highly recommend this tour for all ages.
Beautiful place, beautiful mission

Beautiful little farm that has so much to offer! If you love animals of all kinds you can’t go wrong here. We fed butterflies, held caterpillars and praying mantis, and learned about the life cycle of them all. Memories made and well worth the visit - would’ve gone again if we’d had the time

We have been coming to Maui for a long time and this was the first time we had done the tour. It was a great way to spend part of the day. The young lady who was the guide was outstanding - intelligent, informative and super friendly. We will definitely do it again when we’re here next.
Great tour

A very informative and interesting tour! We decided to do the tour last minute just to bypass some time but it did not disappoint! The staff are lovely and super helpful! You are able to hold different types of butterflies while also learning about the growing process. Definitely check it out!

Such a great little place
And very knowledgeable staff. Loved it just pricing high. Believe is pricing was more reasonable they’d allow locals and tourists to experience the beauty of butterflies more often
