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, Tropical Shortbread cookies, and a variety of Chocolate Covered treats including Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts and Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans.

Paradise Meadows occupies 75 idyllic acres in the South Point (aka Ka Lae) 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. We grow a wide variety of crops including more than 20 acres of the best coffee you've ever tasted. We also, as our name would suggest, have beehives. You won't see them on your visit unless you make special arrangements with us in advance because they reside on the back of our property, but you can sample the variety of honeys that they produce year-round.

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!

If you visit the farm you almost certainly will be greeted by our 4 parrots (3 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. And you'll undoubtedly see our growing flock of free-range Muscovy ducks that are almost too cute to be believed.

You may see some of the other "critters" who share our lives, including our horse, Kai, who roams free on the farm, our sheep Shirley and miniature goat (Matilda). And you may get a glimpse of our greeter kitty Pico.

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.

  • 5 star review  Amazing place! Definitely a must visit if you are going to Volcanoes National Park or the Green Sand Beach. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, and you can't beat the samples of coffee, macadamia nuts, chocolate, and honey! They have self guided tours that you can do around their beautiful farm, or a staff member will take you. Great place!

  • 5 star review  What a MAGICAL experience tasting delicious macadamia nuts, coffee, chocolates & honey in a lovely setting, with such a welcoming host! Truly a slice of paradise 🙂 Perfect stop to try the tastings, explore the farm & cute herb trail with their helpful map, and use the restroom. We left very happy, having purchased yummy gifts for our friends (and snacks for ourselves too 🙂
