Kahi Ola Mau Farm has a rich history in the Big Island Hamakua district town of Honoka'a. Located mauka (towards Mauna Kea) from Honoka'a in an area known as Ahualoa, the 5 acres we call home was first purchased by the sugar plantation doctor sometime in the 1930s or 40s. We are the fourth resident and keeper of this beautiful property and have transformed it into a working farm. Husband and wife team, Mike and Rhonda, are the owners. We love dogs and have three fantastic pups that help us out on the farm: Kimo, Pepper, and Fluffy (aka Fluffberg) are the official greeters. Morty the Muscovy duck and his harem of chickens take care of pest control, and the hens give us fresh eggs daily.Add Kahi Ola Mau Farm to your Honokaa travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Honokaa vacation builder.
We have over 300 cacao trees, 1000 white pineapple, vanilla orchids, 40-something varieties of exotic/tropical fruit and avocado, coffee, native Hawaiian varieties of sugar cane (Ko), a few hives of honey bees, and lots of other cool stuff. Our farm store operates under a Hawai'i County Agricultural-based Commercial Operation Certification where we sell Hawaiian-grown and value-added products in addition to our own farm products. The store will be open on weekends starting in December of 2017.

Loved the tour and tasting - very interesting to learn more about the production and see a cacao tree and pods up close. Tasting the raw bean, roasted nibs, cacao tea, and finished chocolate were a great way to experience the gamut of tastes of the cacao bean. The finished dark chocolates are varied and delicious. Mike is a wonderful tour guide and host.
Very concise but informative tour. We learned a lot about making chocolate bars from cocoa. We surprisingly love the goat milk chocolate although we dislike goat milk. We bought a dozen.
