Talofa Lava & Welcome
Welcome to our Store for Vaoala Vanilla. Our aim is to offer you an authentic experience of a living organic Pacific vanilla farm that is 100% Samoan indigenous and nurtured with a whole lot of love. Explore our handmade vanilla and community products and join us on our Journey in Samoa.
My Story and Journey...
This is a story of how I grew my business that initially started out as a 'hobby'. I have faced and overcome many challenges along the way, such as cyclones damaging the vanilla, lack of workforce and lack of time while still working a fulltime job to keep money coming in to pay the bills.
I have taken the 'big leap' and gone full time with the business so I can take this passionate dream of mine to another level. We are a niche, boutique and organic vanilla farm based in Samoa (South Pacific Islands) that is focused on quality and not necessarily bulk quantity. We want our customers (you) to be a part of our vanilla journey too.
I am a proud, determined and strong indigenous Samoan woman, mother and grandmother and I hope you will enjoy following my journey just as much as I love taking it...Alofa atu, Shelley
Harvesting & Processing Beans
We have been harvesting and processing since March this year and beans are now back on the shelf ready for you! HURRY though because these beans sell out FAST!

Why 'The Beans Love Story'?
My vanilla journey has truly been a 'love story' with growing vanilla over the years. Vanilla is my passion and connection to Mother Earth. It brings out the 'nurturing mother' in me in how I care for this plant and what I can produce from the beans.
so tasty when u enjoy it with pancake
Fantastic product which i have used in my cooking.
Made in Samoa and not in China which fills me with joy
Love the vanilla syrup, love the care with which it was packaged and packed!

This vanilla extract and syrup are by far the best I've ever had. Any other organic vanilla I've bought in the U.S. is totally incomparable.
You won't regret buying this. I add it to EVERYTHING!!
My Vanilla Syrup from Vaoala Vanilla has been an absolute game changer in my baking. The pure vanilla flavours pop through the taste barriers - no more artificially flavoured vanilla for me.
Vaoala Vanilla products never disappoint - this syrup is terrific! I love it with plain yogurt, with homemade granola or in a glass of hot milk on a cold day. Indeed a perfect vanilla condiment.
I heartily recommend this syrup (and all Vaoala Vanilla products) to any vanilla lovers. If you aren't already a vanilla fan, you soon will be after you taste this syrup.
I also appreciate the care taken to ship it safely so far from Samoa.
These Vanilla products are so gorgeous. I use vanilla in all my baking recipes and the quality of Vaoala Vanilla is the best I've had. The paste is Syrupy and sweet, and the aroma of the essence amazing! The dedication to quality really comes across in the product. I love it.
