    This Farm is in its 45th year of operation. We are an organic tree farm. We grow coffee, macadamia nuts, pineapples, citrus, avocados and exotic 'boutique' fruits, bananas and herbs.

    We have a dog, cats, chickens and a turtle. We are also restoring native forest. We live at 2,000 feet elevation with panoramic ocean views. Weather is mild.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travelers learn about native plants and preparing locally sourced and native foods. We are primarily a tree farm with an emphasis on citrus, avocados and coffee, so there are opportunities to learn everything about trees from starting seedlings to root pruning. We are near a small village with a locally-sourced Farmer's Market.

    We do most of our own construction, cement work, painting, repairs, car and tractor maintenance, so there are always opportunities to gain skills in these areas as well, for those who are interested.
