    Company Description

    Coming from a diverse agricultural background, the Kona Hills team seized a rare opportunity to bring our knowledge of sustainable large-scale farming to the famed Kona coffee belt to create a one of a kind specialty coffee farm. Hidden inside a lush ‘ōhi’a forest were vast tracts of land most recently used for cattle grazing that was previously planned for residential development. In 2016, we purchased over 1,300 acres of the historic Hokukano Ranch and 500 acres of the Kealakekua Heritage Ranch and began to return it to its agricultural roots. With an eye towards sustainability, we designed our farm with extensive rainwater catchment infrastructure and utilized drip irrigation to deliver a uniform supply of water and nutrients to the plants.
