The heart of Ulupalakua Ranch sits on the leeward slopes of Haleakala at an elevation of slightly under 2,000 feet.  A spectacularly scenic drive leads to the ranch, traversing pastures where cattle and horses graze and jacaranda bloom, with panoramic views of Mauiís southern coast and Lanai, Molokini and Kahoolawe in the distance.

Ulupalakua Ranch is Maui's second largest cattle ranch, sprawling across 18,000 acres of land that begins at the ocean and rises to 6,000 ftelevation. Originally founded by James Linton Torbert as Torbertsville in 1845, then renamed Rose Ranch in the 1850ís by the renowned Captain James Makee, Ulupalakua became one of the greatest sugar producers as well as a favorite destination spot for King Kalakaua and his royal party.  Incorporated in 1956 by Pardee Erdman, Ulupalakua Ranch exists today as a steward to the land, dedicated to preserving and protecting Mauiís open spaces and agriculture, as well as traditional lifestyle and culture, while at the same time embracing new technology and diversification.

Visitors to Ulupalakua Ranch can experience Mauiís only Winery, enjoy activities such as (click links) Horseback Riding and Sporting Clay Shooting, shop or join us for lunch in the Ranch Store and Grill.
