Aloha!

We are located in South Kona, Honaunau. We are having limited internet at this time, it may take us a few days to get back to you. We will get back to you. We thank you for your patience ahead of time.

Our beautiful ICS certified organic farm has eight acres of mixed exotic tropical fruit, hearts of palm, cacao (chocolate), macadamia nuts and coffee. We have big gardens full of veggies and herbs, there is an intern garden for you to learn and harvest in. We also provide some bulk food weekly to supplement your farm bounty. We have nice cabin living quarters for our wwoofers. We have a kitchen in each cabin for you to prepare your meals. We have a hot solar shower. We are very organized on the farm, we work in the mornings and the rest of the day is for you to enjoy the island life. The beach is just down the hill where there is great swimming, snorkeling and surfing (you may even see a dolphin, turtle or whale). Our farm is very close to a great small community where there are stores, Sunday farmers market, coffee shops, local shops, yoga and many other activities. We are always in the process of learning here. We are trying to make our life and farm as sustainable as possible. We grow most of what our farm needs for food and fertilizer by using different types of cover crops, compost tea, mulching and composting (we also compost with black soldier flies). We use agroforestry techniques when possible. The soil food web is a big part of how our farm works. We feed the soil and the soil feeds the plants. We have incorporated nitrogen fixing trees and shrubs. We also have chicken tractors that we move around the farm for bug, weed control, eggs and fertility. (they also provide a lot of entertainment!) We grow most of our own food and sell the excess at the local farmers market and local stores. You will learn the whole process of growing, processing and marketing coffee, macadamia nuts and cacao (chocolate) while you are here. We enjoy what we do and sharing it with others. If you are interested in learning where your food comes from, learn how to grow your own food in a garden and learn how a small family farm works day to day this is the farm for you.
