Kanalani Ohana Farm

(Honaunau,HI)

Kanalani Ohana Farm is a beautiful bit of agro-jungle in Honaunau on the Kona side of the island of Hawaii. We are at 1600 feet with a gorgeous view of the ocean and Kealakekua Bay. Our steep hillsides and ravines are covered with coffee trees as old as 80 years, grandfather avocado trees, papaya, guava, taro, coconut, orange, cacao (chocolate), tamarillo (tree tomato), apple, fig, macadamia nut, and flowering trees, as well as white pineapple, ginger, poka (wild passion fruit), mulberries, black raspberries and many perennial flowers. We have vegetable gardens including the double spiral perrenial vegetable garden, a labyrinth shaped garden, the mango terrace, the Senekedugu garden with annuals in it and a sweet potato and cassava area. We work both with and against our weeds, eating the edible ones, thanking them for the nitrogen-fixing that enriches our soil as well and pulling out and weed whacking them when they overwhelm our main crops. We are working on putting in cover crops as well as interplanting ground covering vegetables amongst the trees. We primarily mail-order our main crop - organic kona coffee! We also participate each Saturday morning (8am-noon) in the only actual West side of the island farmers' market at the Keauhou Shopping Center (in front of Longs' Drugs in the parking lot).
