A Decade of Hard Work

While Hana is a great place for a sustainable lifestyle and growing your own food. It isn’t always easy to start from scratch. Land needs to be cleared, soil augmented, structures need to be built, energy systems set up and of course orchards need to be planted. There is a lot of trial and error. This 2.78 acre parcel provides an opportunity to reap the literal fruit of the seller’s labors. Over the last decade, the owners thoughtfully and lovingly planted the property with hundreds of fruit trees, flowers and foliage. They used permaculture principles while farming. The farm received organic certification for three years before being discontinued last year due to a lack of need.
