Folks often wonder “what can I see at the very bottom of the Big Island of Hawaii.” If you’re into a little adventure and want to see a few things off the beaten path- there’s some cool side trips you can take. The views above are along the “old cane road”; named for the road where you could drive by sugar cane plantations. Ka`u [the name of the district where our farm is located] has  a 100 year history of sugar cane growing. The processing plant down here closed in 1997. Sugar cane is being replaced by coffee farms. If you look closely in the picture to the left you will see coffee plants. Ka`u coffee beat out Kona coffee the last two years in an International taste testing contest. You need a little time to drive and enjoy the wonderful views, and while most of the road is paved, there’s about a mile that isn’t.  Come stay with us and we’ll help you have the trip of a lifetime.
