Know Your Farmers: Waihe‘e Valley Plantation

Whether you’re used to seeing them covered in chocolate or hanging from trees, macadamia nuts are part of Maui, and are included in our farm-to-table culture. At Fork & Salad, we use them fresh on our salad ingredient line, and in our popular mac nut pesto (featured on several signature sandwiches). Waihe‘e Valley Plantation takes great pride in growing mac nuts in the most natural, sustainable ways possible.
