About Us
The Farm at Maui Majesty is a medicinal plant and animal fiber farm in the heart of Maui, on the slopes of the Haleakala volcano, in lower Kula on the island of Maui in Hawaii, USA. Our location is incredibly beautiful with bi-coastal ocean views as well as views to the top of Haleakela. While we are in the middle of farm country here, we are only 12 minutes to the major town of Kahului which hosts the main harbor/port, airport, and the main industry of the island. Maui Majesty, the property, is literally in the shape of a heart right in the heart of Maui when you view the map of Maui like the silhouette of a human - head and torso. So we say that we are the heart of Maui.
Practices
VALUES: We are a non-toxic (in process to become organic certified) farm whose land has been in pasture for over 50 years, which makes the soil extremely fertile. We never use any chemicals or toxic substances on our farm for any reason. We are a no kill farm. No animals are killed or harmed here, only treated with the utmost of respect and kindness. Further we promote values of stewardship, respect, and reverence for the land and for each other, as well as sustainability, both of the land, and of ourselves.

PLANT POWER: Maui Majesty's mission is all about food as medicine. PLANTS HEAL. At Maui Majesty, we make plants' healing properties available to you through drying, infusing, and/or pressing plants grown on our farm using only the most pure methods. We believe that keeping plants as close to raw and fresh as possible is usually what brings you the most potent and safe results. We never overheat or add toxic solvents to our plant material, therefore ensuring you get the purest, most potent plant medicine available. Our orchards include kiawe, hemp, strawberry guava, awapuhi, papaya, mango, hibiscus, pomegranate, coconut, bougainvillea, spanish needle, monstera deliciosa, agave, cactus, mallow, lion's ear, dragon fruit, Jacaranda, citrus, mac nut, pasture grasses, and so much more.

HEMP: We were among the 1st on Maui and in the state of Hawaii to be awarded the Hawaii state license to grow 20 acres of hemp as part of the Hawaii hemp research pilot program in 2019. We are now federally licensed by the USDA to grow hemp commercially and are registered with the state of Hawaii to process CBD and other hemp cannabinoid products including dietary supplements and cosmetics containing CBD and other cannabinoids from our farm grown hemp. Therefore we offer products made from our hemp to our product line. We grow both high CBD strains as well as high CBG strains of hemp. Our hemp is compliance tested to be below the 0.3% THC limit, therefore ensuring that it is not psychoactive.

ANIMALS: Our animals include rescue/retired horses, alpaca, beautiful show quality bearded silkie chickens (several have won awards), majestic peacocks, adorable angora bunnies, icelandic, finn, and gotland woolly sheep, angora goat, and our family mini yorkie dog, Jackson. We only sell our laying hens locally, to Maui residents who want farm fresh eggs and will also love and respect their chickens, especially since bearded silkies have many pet like qualities. We do not sell our animals for meat. We raise animals for their fiber. No animals are harmed in any way for this. As part of their required grooming maintenance, they are sheared (given haircuts) regularly, and this is where we harvest their fur/fiber/wool.

EDUCATION: We facilitate work-groups in medicine making, growing food & medicine, and regenerative sustainability. Our most recent courses address topics such as earth batteries, atmospheric water generation, composting toilets, cob building, biogas, and other regenerative systems that allow humans to enjoy modern conveniences in ways that are truly sustainable, "off-grid", even survivalist some might say. Most importantly we are working on systems that do not use up natural resources faster than the earth can regenerate them, systems that do not cause harm to other living creatures or to the environment, and hopefully sometimes even enhance them. Some proposed community activities include outdoor screenings of movies like "Kiss The Ground", "In the Mind of Plants", and "David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet" with guided discussions afterward. We believe in and promote education around living WITH the land, more than living off the land. As a professor at several universities and as a licensed clinical social worker/ therapist, Dr. Holstein, owner & founder of Maui Majesty, is supremely passionate about this work and works hard to live this way, to live in harmony with nature.
