Kona Coffee Living History Farm is on SR 11 across from Milepost 110. Self-guiding tours of this 7-acre farm feature interpreters in period clothing demonstrating what life was like for the Japanese coffee farmers who lived and worked on the land during the early 20th century. Visitors can walk among the coffee trees, meet baby donkey Melea and watch how farmers used to mill and dry their world-famous coffee. At the original 1920s farmhouse, guests might find the homemaker starting a fire to cook rice for the farmer’s lunch. Various artifacts and machinery also are on the grounds.
Note: Good walking shoes are required due to uneven paths that include slight hills and rocks.
