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.

Just AMAZING. Every time you go, it feels like the most tropical part of this region. It is such a pleasure to be greeted by their beautiful parrots, ducks, and all the other farm dwellers! Their macadamia nuts are delicious, as well as their cookies, coffee, etc. everyone that works there, is kind and will greet you with a smile. It is so amazing to hear all of the stories of farm life, and the way that all of these amazing people got to this area of Ka'ū. Megan is the resident artist there and is talented beyond belief. Watching her passion for art over the years unfold on the walls of their facility/home has been an honor. She has helped transform this farm into a unique contribution to our lovely region of Ka'ū. It is truly, the Nā'alehu areas only art gallery. Definitely worth a recurring stop, tourist of local.
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!
Good little local farm that we visited! Great tasting mac nuts that they do a different process than most which makes them more crunchy and way more flavorful than I have ever tasted. Worth a stop and worth buying some. They also have a very talented local artist that displays her work.
Best of the Big Island! My personal award recommendation. Friendly, educational, and loaded with goodies. Mac nuts are the best I've tasted. And do request a tasting to help you decide which you like. If you're lucky, you'll get to see the pig chase the ducks around the farm.
This is my favorite place on the island! Everyone is absolutely amazing here. The owners, the staff, the animals. The chocolates, the macadamia nuts, the cookies. Gorgeous property!
