Their story

2 young ladies are smiling and standing in front of a bamboo forest. They are holding colorful flower bouquets.

In 1980, Lavinia Currier traveled to Molokai, a small island off the coast of Maui, looking to buy a piece of land for the Nature Conservancy to protect. Lavinia was enthralled by the land and was looking to buy the ranch to conserve. Through a bit of luck and a twist of fate, Lavinia was able to purchase the ranch.

The ranch was degraded and overgrazed, so Lavinia took it upon herself to revive the land and maintain it for future generations. She envisions the island as a self-sufficient community, sustainable enough to last for generations. Even with the negative impacts of climate change and invasive species, Lavinia continues to better the land she obtained. 

Pu’u O Hoku Ranch is family-owned, named after the Hawaii name meaning “Hill of Stars.” The name fits, as this property’s beauty shines just as brightly as night. The property includes a biodynamic and organic ranch and farm, a rustic retreat center — all steps away from the ocean.

Swim, surf, stargaze, hike, and enjoy all Molokai has to offer. One of the lesser-known Hawaiian islands, Molokai demonstrates the beauty of Hawaii’s past. Visit Pu’u O Hoku Ranch for a relaxing retreat where you can enjoy nature free of distractions. Read more about them here.
