The Experience

We are a three year old self-sufficiency start-up farm. Currently we are focused on our aqua-farming projects along with developing vegetables, nuts and fruit crops. Our farm is in beautiful Hilo Hawaii. We live at an elevation which gives us close to perfect warm/cool temps year round. We are a multi-cultural family and hope to meet people from all over the world!

The four weeks I was there I had a great time! 😊The work is a little hard but with the company of the other volunteers it becomes easier. The main problem is mobility since the bus stop is 1 hour away on foot and then the bus passes whenever it wants, but everything else is very good. Many thanks to Mey, Dave and Tair for everything and for trying to help me with everything.

I had a great time here! I loved how Dave took the time to explain how the farm works and he was helpful whenever I had questions. The house is nice and clean, and it was fun to hang out with the other volunteers & Tair. Only negative aspect was transportation - we were quite far up the mountain and getting around without access to a car was hard (hour walk to nearest bus stop and they're quite unreliable). I loved being outside all day and I'd definitely recommend this!

I stayed for four weeks at the farm, and it was really cool!🥰 The work was a little exhausting sometimes when the sun was strong, but the nature here is beautiful, and the farm as well! I learned a lot about farming and 🌱 I love the animals there, especially Chai and Kitty Cat. Thanks to Tair for showing us the island. Thanks to Dave and Mey for hosting us and the Thanksgiving invite! I liked that we lived in a separate cottage, so we had a lot of privacy.

The two weeks I was on the farm were very lovely. I enjoyed the time there very much and learned many new things. Dave and Mey always helped me. The farm is surrounded by beautiful nature and the animals are very cute. The work in the green was very interesting and I enjoyed it very much. If you like to work with locals I would recommend it 100% to you.

The last two weeks on the farm were truly amazing! Dave and Mey were so nice and always tried their best to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The work was made up of many different tasks so it never got boring and I got to learn soooo much about farming and different cultures during my stay there. Thanks to their son Tair, I could explore a looooot of beautiful places on the island as well. :) I really really hope that I can come back to that farm again, I loved it!
