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 was recently named the Best Chocolate Shop in the entire state of Hawaii by Yelp! Come on by and taste for yourself.

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 60 acres of the best coffee you've ever tasted. We also, as our name would suggest, have beehives, and 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 self-guided 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 and where we give our other fruiting plants (like tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.) a great start in life before we transplant them into organically fertilized soil. And you'll undoubtedly see our 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 Penny the formerly feral pet pig, our horse, Kai, who roams free on the farm, and our miniature goat Matilda. And you may be able to pet our 15 year old greeter kitty Pico if he's not enjoying one of his many naps.

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, be sure to visit the art gallery where you can see the originals covering 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.

  • 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!

  • This is a great stop for the family! The hydroponics and animals are a return to bygone eras. Not the greatest pix.. but while your there it was fun to interact with rescued birds as well. Staff was very friendly.

  • Great little farm. Has bathrooms and showers if you go to green sand beach. Little shop is cute and they'll let you try the macadamia nuts. Favorite part was the self-guided tour where we walked around their little farm with a map and written notes about each part. They have coffee, macadamia nut, papaya, and banana trees. They grow herbs as well. There are ducks to see. Great place for kids.

  • We stopped here after visiting South Point. This was definitely a highlight of our trip! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. There’s an abundance of free samples (coffee and macadamia nuts) and the prices are great! We stocked up on gifts. We were on a tight schedule and didn’t have the time to tour the farm. We wish we had more time there!

  • Had so much fun visiting the farm. We popped in because it came up when we searched for chocolate, but it offers so much more! There are over two dozen (maybe 3 dozen?) samples - more than Costco! Everything is delicious, you'll kick yourself for not buying more! Shortbread cookies, mac nuts, chocolate, coffee, honey, and art! Plus they have a really friendly pig Penny, parrots, and lots of other cool wildlife - most adopted. They roast their coffee on site, and their owner Lilly is very warm and welcoming, as are the great staff! We got to chat with her as they were closing about the history of the farm, roasting, the animals, and more! Highly recommend!
