Aloha from our farm

Aloha All

For some time now I’ve been thinking about writing a blog, so that you could get a feel for what is happening on the farm, in our area, and just get a feel for our little country estate out here in the middle of the pacific. Right now we’re waiting for guests to arrive, and as I’m sitting typing I can hear the birds in the trees out in the orchard, as they start to settle in for the soon aproaching twilight. I’ve lived here on this very spot for almost 12 years now, and after awhile, like most humans you start to take what you experience on a daily basis for granted. In many areas of the earth people are almost over come with sounds of traffic, people, and the constant hustle and bustle of busy city life. We’re blessed to be able to experience living in the middle, literally of a Macadamia Nut orchard, with gentle breezes from the trees, the shade they provide as you walk through the orchard; and when we have a blossom flush the pervasive perfume of the Macadamia blossoms.
As the sun continues to set I hear our Hawaiian roosters calling their hens to roost, snuggled into the protective branches of the Macadamia treesĀ out in the orchard. Few places in this earth do you see fowl so close to their original, natural habitat.
