We are looking for a relatively strong person to help with our shopping and deliveries. We have several food businesses so it is important for us to have someone with a valid license and an excellent driving record to represent us. We are not looking for a short term helper but for someone interested in being in Hawaii for at least 3 months. You will receive housing and food. There may be one other helper but often you will have the lodgings to yourself so it is important that you are ok with alone time.If you are interested there is an opportunity to experience, first hand, the ups and downs about being a food entrepreneur and maintaining a small farm.

You will be living at our farm which is located in one of the most amazing parts of the Big Island, set in a lush tropical macadamia nut grove. At an altitude of 1200 ft, we have cooler nights and ocean views in the distance.

We are a few miles up the mountain from Two Step (a fantastic swimming and snorkeling beach) and The Place of Refuge, an important Hawaiian historical sites.

We bake pies, tarts, breads,rolls and make chutneys and jams, If interested it is an opportunity for our helpers to help grow, create, manufacture and sell value added products.

We also have a booth at one of the best farmers markets on the Island. Fruit is ready to be enjoyed by our helpers especially in the winter months, citrus, avocados, papaya, and lilikoi.

The house has three levels and the helpers quarters are on the lower level with their own toilet and separate shower, cooking facilities, sink, fridge, lounge, table and chairs, the sleeping areas are screened off. Because meals, including meat and bread are an important part of what we have to share it is best if our helpers are NOT vegans, vegetarians and gf folks.

Please contact us with any questions!
