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 Macadmia Nuts, Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts and Coffee Beans, and 100% Hawaiian Honey.
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 11 miles south of our farm on South Point Road. On our farm you'll find a bit more than 20 acres of lime, lemon and avocado orchard which we've rescued from the rainforest over the past 9 years. And 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'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, and baby coffee trees) a great start in life before we transplant them into organically fertilized soil. You may see our small herd of grazing cattle that help keep the rainforest at bay by eating the nutritious vines and grass. You might get a look at our two horses (Mocha & Kai) who roam free on the farm. And you will almost certainly be greeted, often with spoken "Aloha's", by our 5 parrots (4 of whom are rescued or rehomed birds).
You'll be able to stop at our Farm Stand and enjoy free, unlimited samples of all of our delicious products.Enjoy a free coffee tasting, sample a variety of raw, all-natural Hawaiian honey, and try as many of our delicious, unique varieties of our dehydrated -- not roasted -- macadamia nuts, chocolate-covered macadamia nuts and chocolate coffee bean crunch. We also offer fresh lemons, limes, lilikoi (passion fruit), bananas, avocados and other produce for sale when they're available. And we have a clean, convenient restroom which you are more than welcome to use.
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.
