Kulike Forest Farm
Hakalau, HI 96710
Kulike Forest Farm is an off-grid permaculture farm on the Hamakua coast of Big Island. Our goal is to be energy and food self-sufficient and to share what we have learned with others. We offer tours of our edible landscape featuring cacao and numerous other fruit trees. You can collect eggs in our Korean Natural Farming chicken house, breathe in the mist at our stunning waterfall, press sugar cane to make lemonade, or learn how we make chocolate. Visit our farmstand to purchase our honey-sweetened chocolate, sugar cane lemonade, dried bananas, fresh fruits and other treats. We also have a guest house "Forest Hale," for short-term rentals, nestled in a tropical food forest.
We are members of OneTreePlanted , and donate 3% of all proceeds to this essential planet-healing action - meaning at least one tree is planted for every farm tour, and three trees for every night at our guest house!
Tours and Workshops
