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  I love the atmosphere and Brenda was very nice. The chocolate covered crunchs are very tasty. Thank you for having such a nice place!

  • 5 star review  Last chance to go. Gracious people. So gracious they responded to my review. This is an edit... Last chance to go to the bathroom in a nice place with gracious people. They're eco conscious too. They use the husks from macadamia nuts they harvest to pave their roadway. 11 points to every review that tells us another eco friendly action taken at Paradise Meadows!

  • 5 star review  Found this little gem on the way to the southern most point of the states and so happy we did!! She gave us about 7 or 10 different nuts and chocolates to try- almost a whole dinner! They were all absolutely amazing and they do deals if you buy more than one, so of course we had to leave with 3 flavors! They had cool birds and ducks and the little gallery had a cute kitty! They were super friendly and im so happy we got to stop here! We didn't get to try the honey but I'm sure it was great! Highly reccomend for a little snack or just at least a little fun thing to get out and do and look at on your drive to wherever! Mahalo to all the nice people there!

  • 5 star review  We absolutely LOVED our time at Paradise Meadows! The staff was so knowledgeable and interesting! I had no idea the owner was a Cordon Bleu trained chef! No wonder everything was so delicious! They were so generous with the samples - helping us find just the right treats and shipping them home for us! We loved wandering around this little farm, learning all about the different processes and asking questions. We will definitely be re-ordering our favorites! #letsguide

  • 5 star review  There are so much stuff to do here!!! There are so many selections of chocolate, macadamia nuts, and honey. The workers here are really nice and will help you sample everything before purchasing. They will help ship things back home for anything over $100 as an added convenience. After sampling everything, be sure to take a nice walk to see their gardens and birds!
