Welcome to Paradise Meadows Orchard & Bee Farm, home of Hawaii's Local Buzz brand of award-winning 100% Hawaiian Ka'u Coffee, fabulous 100% Hawaiian Macadamia Nuts, 100% Hawaiian Honey and a variety of Chocolate Covered treats including Chocolate Covered Mac Nuts and Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans.
We have a farm stand that is open 7 days a week from 9 AM - 5:30 PM where you can get free samples of all of our delicious products and enjoy a brief tour of the farm. If you're planning to visit the Big Island of Hawaii and are looking for something a little different to do, please pay us a visit. Our visitors often tell us that a visit to our farm was one of the highlights of their vacation in Hawaii. When you come down South Point Rd. just look for the red tractor!
Paradise Meadows occupies 75 idyllic acres in the South Point area of the Big Island of Hawaii. South Point itself is the southern-most part of the United States, and is located just 12 miles south of our farm on South Point Road. On our working family farm you'll find a bit more than 20 acres of lime, lemon and avocado orchard which we've rescued from the rainforest and 5 acres of some of the best coffee you've ever tasted.. You'll also find a range of agricultural "experiments" that provide a truly diversified agricultural environment and endless opportunities and challenges.
If you visit the farm you almost certainly will be greeted by our 6 parrots (5 of whom are rescued or re-homed birds). You'll see an aquaponics greenhouse -- a truly sustainable ecosystem -- where we grow lots of leafy greens (lettuce, herbs, spinach, kale, bok choy, etc.), and where we give our other fruiting plants (like tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, eggplant, beans, etc.) a great start in life before we transplant them into organically fertilized soil.
You may see some of the other "critters" who share our lives, including a small herd of grazing cattle that help keep the rainforest at bay, our two horses (Mocha & Kai) who roam free on the farm, and our two sheep (Shirley & Gracie) and miniature goat (Matilda). And you may get a glimpse of our 2 cats (Sam & Pico) and our 4 wonderful dogs (Moe, Chandra, Bruno & Maggie), also all rescues.
Paradise Meadows is also home to our resident artist, Megan Collins. You can see her work by visiting her website, and if you visit the farm, ask to see the originals which cover the walls of our farmhouse.
So -- welcome to Paradise Meadows. Make yourself at home. Feel free to browse around. And if you're ever on the BIg Island of Hawaii, come down & visit us. We'd love to show you around.
