  • Description


    Aloha, We are a family run farm here on the Big Island of Hawaii. We are full time Organic macadamia nut and Kona coffee farmers and processors on 10 acres and manage 4 other organic farms nearby. We are the only Organic macadamia nut processors in the U.S. that we know of. We live off the grid, using solar and water catchment although we do have Wi-Fi and electricity in our processing facility.
    We believe in integrity, having fun, and taking care of ourselves by working hard, eating healthy, and playing at the beach.
    We would love help on the farm, in our processing facility. We ask 30 hours a week with a small stipend for food.
    Paid work available weekends.
    Mahalo Kollette Stith

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have been a host to volunteers on our farm, for 10 years and have gained so much richness in our lives because of it. I think the exchange has been mutual. We can share a simple hawaiian lifestyle, organic growing and bio-dynamic farming techniques, organic grown food, and beautiful loving people.
