Moonstruck Organics Coffee Farm
Our small coffee farm is above Place of Refuge National Park at 2000' elevation on Hawaii Island's west coast. We are in a very rural rain forest microclimate with ferns everywhere and nearly perfect shirtsleeve weather. Our usually clear sunny mornings are most often followed by rainy afternoons. We are close (driving not walking) to area beaches and about 20 minutes to the nearest large grocery store. We are 1 hour from KOA airport and 40 minutes to Kailua-Kona which has Costco, Target, Walmart and many restaurants and stores.
We are your hosts Ana and David. We are in our 70's and are healthy and active in caring for our farm. We love sharing about coffee culture and the Hawai'ian culture too. We enjoy meeting young people and consider our volunteer opportunity respectful and collaborative. We are seeking two people who already know one another to apply together because of the isolation on our farm. We will offer one or more trips a week to the beach or to town. Most of our work consists of controlling weeds and hauling brush so it is not difficult nor requires great strength. We have two friendly older pet cats and lots of chickens. We have mosquitoes and noisy roosters and noisy coqui frogs in addition to our gorgeous scenery and lush vegetation. We will work with volunteers to have time off for travel to other parts of our magical island. We have loads of books about Hawai'i (culture, history, nature, travel) which we gladly share. We have good cell signal here but no Wi-Fi. We have a place to charge your cell phone in our bath house which has a heated shower and flush toilet. You will cook most of your meals with the food we supply but may always buy extra things you like.
