My husband, my two boys (ages 15 and 10) and I live on a 3.9 acre farm in Hawaii. Both my husband and I were born and raised here on the Big Island. We moved to this farm about 10 years ago and have been slowly bringing it back to life. The farm already has coffee, macadamia nuts, bananas, mangos, avocados, lilioki (passion fruit), guava, pineapples, and citrus (not always in season). We have visions of beautifying the land and making it as self-sustaining as possible. We’re very open-minded and love to learn. We love music, good organic food, art, soccer, surfing, farming, and most outdoor activities. We’re excited to meet new people and expose our kids to different cultures.
Ideally we are looking for two people to come stay in the same hawaiian hut.....a couple or two friends would be awesome . We love it so much when people come with experience in construction/handyman skills, those good with children, the ability to clean and organize, gardening experience and agriculture know how. Extra bonus if you have used a weed eater, chainsaw and other farm equipment! We are hoping for help with a variety of things including farm and garden help, household help, building projects, fruit picking and processing, and much more.
💗If someone is educated in marketing I would love help with my businesses social media and other marketing projects.
We’re looking for helpers that have the ability to be able to take care of themselves and be self-motivated. It’s important for you to be into an outdoor living experience, more or less glorified camping. Mosquitos, geckos, and other critters are always scaling our walls in Hawaii.
It is mandatory that you have health insurance to stay with us.
Since we are a family, the ability to live in community, open communication, and respect are very important to us. All-in-all, we are looking for the right fit so please message us with as much relevant detail about yourself (why you would like to stay at our farm, your experience with children, living habits previous work experience, hobbies and interests, etc.

Culturally both my husband and I are born here in Hawaii. We both are second generation farmers here. We love to share our love for the land here in Hawaii. With a little love and care the land provides abundance.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Weed eating, clearing land, building, cleaning, cooking, gardening , fruit picking and processing and other odd and end things around the house. As we get to know you it becomes clear what jobs suit you best and we usually focus on that. I also could use help in marketing if that’s something that interest you and you have had experience with. It’s always fun to get to know each other.
We have a 20x20 Hawaiian hut with a pallet floor. It’s set up with a bed, couch and a simple kitchen in it. It has an attached (cold)shower and a composting toilet.
We provide a staple of rice, oatmeal, and beans and some fruit off the farm depending on what’s in season. We ask that you cover any other food expenses. Bringing the garden back to life will bring us all perks of fresh veggies.
Our farm is on a fairly steep hill, 4 wheel drive accessible. Expect to do a lot of walking. Transportation is very limited because we live in such a remote area of the island. Other workawayers we've known have had good experiences with hitchhiking. The closest beach is 3 miles away. The closest grocery store is about 8 miles away. It's important that you like adventure and would be willing to hitchhike or walk 3 miles down hill to a beach! We will be happy to show our guests some of our favorite spots but most of your adventuring will depend on your own adventuring Skills. 😃 We encourage people to be out adventuring on their time off. If it’s a good fit, we would love to have someone work toward buying a car or another form of transportation to become more self-sufficient. We usually like to do a one month trial period to get to know each other, and we prefer a three month minimum stay, which can be discussed further. However we’re hoping for a long term helper if it turns out we like each other (:
