Greenworld Coffee Farms

We head straight up to the North Shore after pick up in Waikiki and make a stop at Greenworld Coffee Farms which offers a wide arrange of coffee and tea Samples daily for guests. A great way to refresh and grab a cup of coffee made from the beans of one of the 3000+ Arabica trees on the 7 acres of Greenworld Coffee Farm before heading to the Dole pineapple fields.

Dole Pineapple Fields and Pineapple Processing Plants

In 1899, a young Massachusetts native named James Dole used his savings and moved to Honolulu. He eventually purchased a 64-acre homestead in Oahu’s central plains and experimented with several crops, finally choosing to grow pineapple. The business grew rapidly as Dole launched ad campaigns in magazines, invested in modern machinery to process the crops, and obtained significant financial backing in order to purchase more land to farm. The budding trans-Atlantic aviation industry also helped him began to ship the pineapples great distances and by 1950, a small fruit stand was erected so that everyone could savor the plantation’s tasty fruit. Now the Hawaii Dole operation has over 200 employees, and Dole Food Company’s global reach extends to 90 countries with over 170 fresh and packaged food products.

Now for the first time, visitors can join Go Hawaii Tours as we venture into the fields to see the field workers planting, picking and processing the pineapples with one of our local guides. This truly immersive experience will have the guest on and off the bus, walking with our guide through the fields and pineapple processing plants to see the whole process Dole has perfected to supply the world with delicious pineapples. 

This is a one of a kind experience on Oahu will even have the guest sample a pineapple straight from the pineapple fields, and before leaving each guest will receive a complimentary pineapple to take home with them.
