We are an 11.2 acre organic farm located in South Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. Our major commercial crops are coffee and mangos. The farm is a bit like a botanical garden with many other tropical fruit trees and plants including avocados, sour sop, citrus, starfruit, mountain apples, pineapple, cacao and bananas. Our apprentices develop the garden, maintain the farm, harvest produce and help prepare it for market. We can accommodate 2 additional apprentices on Konacopia Farm and we look for couples since that works best for our housing. We have one long term apprentice couple. The living space is two gazebos on a 12' x 10' deck under an avocado tree with a view of Keei Beach. It has a kitchenette and eating area, with comfortable sleeping. You will have your own refrigerator. The bath house is shared as well as the lounge area. We ask for 4 hours of organized farm help 3 mornings a week from 7:30 am to noon on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in exchange for a place to stay and seasonal non-commercial fruit. Our apprentices take care of purchasing and preparing their own food. Our apprentices enjoy Konacopia Farm and all that it offers. The farm is not far from the ocean for wonderful swimming and snorkeling. We are in a rural area, but not far from shopping, going to town in Kailua Kona or Farmers' Market on Sundays. We are happy to give rides to apprentices when we are going your way. We have WiFi wireless Internet connection but apprentices need to have their own computer. We welcome apprentices from around the world! If you want to learn about organic farming, love the out of doors and simple living and don't mind getting your hands dirty and putting in good solid work, you will love it here.
