Chief Operating Goose, MauiGoose of Hawaii, Ltd.

Our business began as a flower farm on Maui about 35 years ago. Since 1995 our business is
entirely on the web. By adding products from Oahu, Maui, Kauai and The Big Island of Hawaii,
our "goose" is gathering selections from the great bounty grown and created in our island state.
We are constantly exploring new sources and re-evaluating our selections based on integrity,
value, variety and a respect for the Hawaiian culture.

Our customers are the most important part of our business. We strive to bring the highest quality
flowers and gifts to you and your family and friends. We are always open to suggestions and look
forward to hearing from you. We are grateful for your letters and emails.

MauiGoose, online for over 20 years, has had many advantages of being an internet store including
being able to travel and live in many places. New Bern, North Carolina is now home to our Chief Goose,
returning to family on the Big Island of Hawaii as often as possible. Having lived and worked on
O'ahu, Maui, and the Big Island, for more than 40 years, Hawaii is always home.

We are honored to have the artistic talent of Gallery Sweet of Maui photography as part of our
presentation on line.

delightful image that it became part of the
