This land has only changed hands a few times since the Great Mahele, and most of that ownership was with one family, who ranched it, keeping their retired heifers on the land. During the era of sugar cane growing along the Hamakua Coast, these parcels were above the cane fields. As such, the soil was never treated with any deadly chemicals and was not burned, like the cane areas closer to the ocean. The natural humus and mycorrhiza are intact and thriving. The land is home to many native plants and animals, as well as some introduced varieties of coffee, avocado, Surinam cherry, loquat, waiwi, guava, jackfruit, citrus, lilikoi, banana, bamboo and more.Located at the end of the road it is peaceful and very private. Surrounded to the south and east by County of Hawaii owned forest reserve, as well as State of Hawaii land beyond that, with large parcels of cattle pasture to the west, the farm has been protected from development and storms, allowing many native birds and plants to establish a safe place to grow. There is an unpermitted 2 bedroom home and drying shed on the property with solar and battery backups. Interested parties could consider several income generating possibilities offered by the properties. Award-winning coffee grows on both parcels and could be harvested and sold roasted, or the trees could be leased out to other area coffee farmers. The property has been recently subdivided into two parcels but being sold as one. The water for the farm is catchment, which can be filtered and treated however the new owners’ desire. There is also a likely spring on the western parcel, mauka of the entry gate. The two tanks at the top of the eastern parcel hold approximately 16,000 and 24,000 gallons, caught from a 1,600 square foot “field”, which collects approx. 1,000 gallons per inch of rainfall.Come and see this special place!
