Farm Tour

Map to Da Kine Coffee Farm If you wish to tour our farm look for the sign between mile markers 104 and 105,  look for an identical sign, 1 mile up an “interesting road” . Call first to make sure we will be home. Our farm is on Bishop lease land, owned by Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estate (KSBE). There are more than 600 farmers who cultivate on Bishop lease land in Kona and produce coffee, macadamia nuts, vegetables, fruit, etc. Lots people’s daily life starts with a cup of coffee, but some people don’t know anything about this plant, never seen a coffee tree in their whole life. So, we are going to use some pictures to show you the different life stages of coffee.
