Welcome to Kalōpā Makai
Kalōpā Makai Farms is a 5 acre family farm and food forest, employing the latest in permaculture and sustainable growing techniques. We grow without chemical pesticides or herbicides. On this small parcel we are able to know every plant and tree. By staying small we can curate the property, growing only the best varieties and the most productive trees. We are constantly evolving and rethinking our use of the land to be more efficient and sustainable.
We purchased the property in 2004 and while lovely, the grounds were almost entirely ornamental. It became our dream to turn the land into something productive, to feed our family and to bring the land back into balance. Our goal was to build a space where we could live in harmony with the land. Doing as much as we can by hand, we employ traditional growing practices and processing techniques with a little help from technology.
We now have over numerous fruit, nut, and ornamental trees as well as a variety of plants and herbs. We have several ponds on the property which serve as safe havens for our ducks and provide water for the property. We have expanded our production facilities with a drying house, coffee processing and roasting equipment and an oil press so that we can do more with what we grow on the farm. It is our goal to continue our work here with the ideal of living entirely off the land in the future.
