Our Kona True Farm

This is our family owned and operated farm on the Big Island of Hawaii. Our primary business is Kona coffee.  It is hard work, but we love it.  We do everything from planting to packaging.

For our family we grow mangoes, macadamia nuts and an increasing pineapple patch. The coconut palms add another nice touch for the occasional coconut water. We continue to try new crops. When we are not farming, we are roaming the island. Our favorite adventure is spending time in the Hawaiian waters. We film or photograph everything we can and enjoy sharing the experience.

Before becoming Kona coffee farmers, we had more time to travel, write, take photos, and make videos (all things we love to do).  We share some of that on Travel Gravy, which is our blog about our travels.  You’ll also find some of Bill’s videos there, and on the Kona True Facebook page, and Bill just started adding videos to our Kona True YouTube channel.

If you’re ever interested in discovering the long journey that brought us from Texas to Hawaii, Engel’s written a story about it called “Water Child.”  It is posted here.
