I have been developing a working homestead for the past ten years in Hawaii. The farm consists of 21 1/2 acres on Big Island. We did not come from farming backgrounds but I have always had an interest in basic family style farming. Now that I am retired, I have a chance to fillful my lifelong desire. Our farm is stil a work in progress.

I'm very much enjoying this website. There's some great info here and I'm meeting some nice people. Wonderful conversations. Wonderful ideas. Thanks!

Hi Miles! Thanks for the welcome.

I don't know how to post an image here. I have jpg's on my computer but don't know how to get them here. But people could go the my blog where I am currently in the process of doing photos to each of my posts. Ha, I finally figured out how to post them on blogspot. I'm not the most savvy computer user, but I give it a try.

Welcome, Su Ba.
The Big Island is such a beautiful place.
I did some property scouting there this last winter. Found the perfect spot.
I really liked the North Kohala area and a little bit south of there too.
Incredible land, great soils, not too much rain, great people, views -- what more can you ask for?
I was amazed by the mequite that grows along the coast there -- a local told me it came over when folks brought cows -- maybe the cows brought it in there guts?
I'll be sure to check out your blog.
 
I RELEASE YOU! (for now .... ) Feel free to peruse this tiny ad:
