Description

We are a family-run macadamia nut and Kona coffee producer and processor located on the Big Island of Hawa'i. We love what we do and pride ourselves in producing the freshest gourmet macadamia nuts and Kona coffee possible. We are seeking 2 persons to help us with farm labor. You'll live in our yurt with access to an outdoor kitchen, outdoor shower and composting toilets. We provide bulk ingredients for you to eat (oatmeal, pasta, salt ...) as well as everything that grows on the farm (nuts, fruits, veggies...). The farm is located 3 miles away from the beach and we have a lot of gear for you to play with on your free time (kayak, MTB, surfboards, tent). The island of Hawai'i (aka Big island) has a lot of different playgrounds and weather conditions for you to enjoy, from hiking, camping, mountain biking to surfing, kayaking, diving and spear fishing. Sister islands are an hour flight away so you can even plan weekend escapades.
