BIG KA'U FARMS is one of the few FEE SIMPLE producing coffee farms in Wood Valley. With over 6000 trees planted on approximately 12 of the 24 available acres, there is opportunity for income as well as diversification into other crops. Currently the farm is planted in Typica and Caturra varieties. See breakdown attached at tool bar.

Located in the perfect spot for sun and rain, 2000-2300' elevation with an annual rainfall of 78"-118" annually, the owner has developed the farm from 300 trees in 2012 to a successful operation.

Additionally the farm is connected to the private water system of Olson Trust through a water line installed by the owner. He has a transferable 20 year water agreement (see attached) with Olson Trust and currently pays $35/month distribution cost. That said, he also catches rainwater and does not need to irrigate mature plants. The property is "off the grid" with electricity supplied by a photo voltaic system of 10 solar panels, 120 V converter and solar batteries. The Sellers live comfortably on site in 2 insulated living containers of 320 sf. Upscale camping!

The lot rises at the southwest to a knoll which affords sweeping coastline and ocean views. Access to this area is not currently maintained, inspection will be accommodated during the inspection period once the property is in escrow with a committed buyer.

Seller completed a prune back of his entire orchard in 2018 which limited overall production in 2018 but the orchard is regrowing beautifully and production should be strong again by 2020. Former production numbers and income figures are attached at tool bar. Included in sale are the insulated containers for living and/or storage and two drying houses (attached at toolbar). An inventory of equipment available for sale will be provided upon receipt of offer.

Opportunity awaits the entrepreneur. Seller willing to consult for one month after closing if needed.

Kau

When the first Hawaiians migrated north, South Point at the foot of Mauna Loa is likely the first land they saw from their double-hulled voyaging canoes. The Ka'u coastline is truly a majestic sight.

The Ka'u district, which is the southernmost area of the Big Island and the southernmost tip of the U.S, is still a real estate frontier. This is largest district in the State, but the least populated. At its northern boundary lies Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, undeniably volcano goddess Pele’s domain. Dominating the landscape along the coast are black sand beaches and mile after mile of stark lava landscape where forests of ohi'a and a variety of small farms and orchards are flourishing.

Home to several large rural subdivisions created by real estate developers in the mid-1900s as well as historic and culturally significant small villages, Ka'u embraces a very diverse population, many of whom are committed to "keeping country country." Recent proposed resort developments have met with strong community resistance, giving rise to active community groups dedicated to preserving the legacy of ancestral places and the old Hawaiian ways.

Located deep in the hills of Ka'u is Wood Valley, where in 1980 His Holiness the Dalai Lama consecrated and dedicated the Nechung Dorje Drayang Ling Immutable Island of Melodious Sound as a Buddhist temple and retreat. Farther south, along the highway, are the small villages of Pahala and Naalehu. Farther still are the subdivisions of Hawaiian Ocean View Estates, Hawaiian Ocean View Ranchos, Green Sand, Mark Twain and Discovery Harbor.

There are unique real estate opportunities in Ka'u for those who prefer life outside the mainstream. A variety of custom homes, off-grid homes, farms, ranch properties and ocean view lots are available in the Clark Realty Big Island listings.
