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 two horses (Mocha & Kai) who roam 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.

Stopped in after a hike to green sand beach. Very fun and friendly woman offered chocolate, cookie and lemonade tastings. Yummy treats and we were offered use of the shower and a free lemon and avo. Definitely worth a stop!
We had such an amazing time! The macadamia nuts and all of the food was delicious!! The people (Brenda and Lenard) were so kind! I can’t recommend this place enough - definitely worth stopping and we will be back!
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
This place is by far the best Macadamia farm we went to and we visited a few of the big ones. The product is great as well as it feeling a lot more like a family owned place. I highly recommend visiting here on your way to South Point and Papakolea. If you are doing the road trip from Kailua to Hilo (or the other way around) this is a must do, and if not, you should go anyways, it is worth it!
Lovely small farm with free tasting and tours. Very low key and informative. The guides were around to answer questions and show us around the beautiful herb garden. Lots of banana trees, coffee trees and avocado trees. And they use aquaponics and you can learn all about the benefits of that kind of farming!
