    Description

    Welcome to our Farm! We are a 6.2 acre farm located in Kailua-Kona on The Big Island of Hawaii.

    We have a commercial sized Aquaponics system, 3000 coffee trees, and a plethora of tropical fruit trees. There’s also a 1200 square foot raised bed garden growing yummy stuff to eat.

    Our farm uses organic and Korean Natural Farming practices. Good food does NOT require alterations or chemicals.

    We are located IN Kailua-Kona with the closest proximity to stores, restaurants and of course beaches! Our elevation is about 1100 ft. so the evenings provide a nice and cool temperature.


    We are entering into coffee season, so there could be some maintenance of the coffee trees (fertilizing, pruning, watering, and picking) as well as processing of the coffee. We are outdoors, we do have bugs, and it might be hot compared to what you’re used to.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Hopefully you’ll learn about soil-less and natural farming, and running a small lifestyle business around what you grow. Knowing where your food comes from is thoroughly a blessing!
    We are very close to the popular beaches, 5 miles from Kona town, and live on an awesome mountain. Get out and explore this amazing place on your 3 days off!

    Agricultural experience is awesome but not necessary. Just bring a great attitude!

    We are looking for applicants who can give a 3 month commitment.

    Some farming, gardening, and/or landscaping experienced is preferred but we are open to those who are flexible, willing to learn and enjoy working outside with nature. Bring an awesome attitude and we can make the rest work!

    This is a great opportunity for those who want to explore Aquaponics or Korean Natural Farming, and how a lifestyle business runs in Hawaii.

    The main focus will be Aquaponics. This work will consist of planting seeds and harvesting the crops as well as maintaining the system (feeding the fish, testing the water, cleaning rafts/foam boards etc). helpers will work 4 days a week and be pau hana (done working) by 1:30 so there’s plenty of time to hit the beach.
