One of the best, if not the best, pit stop we made!! Delicious & innovative ways to eat macadamias! Fresh, roasted, oil, covered in chocolate..the list goes on! Wonderful owners, feels like a big family.. incredibly knowledgeable & you can even walk around the orchard! They have other fruits & animals as well Well worth the stop! Enjoy!!

A must visit. Superb location and truly organic. Hosts were friendly and extremely informative. Macadamia products out of this world. Another must try are the 'brittles' and the 'dukkah'. Enjoy a walk around the orchard accompanied by the family goats. Enjoy.

The grounds at this farm are well kept and beautiful. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. There is a self-guided tour around the property, including the fruit trees. This is a sustainable operation, and the goats they use for weed control and friendly and cute. Samples are offered at the sales stand.

Was taken out to Cathedral Cove on a boat, we swam in the water and had fun jumping off the rock, went to see the Snapper fish as this is a NO FISHING ZONE.

What a little gem of a place! We had a quick tour of the macadaemia orchard and then got to sample some of the many products they make. The oil and the honey I can totally recommend. Also the ice cream! A must stop.

We spent about 30mins at this pretty little farm. The owner spent the time explaining how the harvest and processing is done, as well as offer us tastings of the various macadamia products. Only a 10 min detour from Hahei, on the way to Cook's beach. Worth a stop.

In an out of the way place, up a gravel road, we found nut heaven!! Terrific hostess, terrific products, plenty of knowledge and assistance as we tasted our way around the products on offer. The place is really clean, well presented and had numerous offerings of macadamia nuts but also other condiments and tasty items to eat and purchase. All... More

We were happy to find this place. It's a bit off the main road, and some of the drive is on unsealed road, but it's a nice spot. Up a narrow driveway, you'll find the shop across from a parking area and picnic table. We were met by Simon, who really enjoyed our enthusiasm about seeing macadamia nut trees. He... More
