Listing Remarks

This exquisite fruit farm is a must see for any farmer dreaming of living and working in their own tropical paradise! Lovingly and thoughtfully developed, the property is planted out with variety and longevity in mind, and comes with two, unpermitted, well-built cabins. The Seller took no shortcuts in clearing and preparing the land; everything except the house pads/driveway was hand cleared. Pre-existing trees were cut by axe/pruning saw, and stumps manually dug out. Each fruit tree site was selectively prepared with buckets of soil/fern mixture and special attention to spacing from its neighbor. The Seller hauled pickup loads of green waste from Hilo, unloading by shovel each day, creating mounds below every tree. From planting until present, the trees receive ongoing mulching and an organic fertilization regimen. Now the hard work is done and the farm is ready for a new steward to provide it love and care while reaping the benefits. Per Seller, you will enjoy approx: 40 citrus, 950 (mostly white) pineapples, 20 avocado, 6 rollinia, 2 soursop, 1 mac nut, 1 mangostein, 2 Brazilian plums, hundreds of bananas, 3 ulu, 3 mt. apple, 2 jackfruit, 2 white sapote, 2 lychee, & turmeric garden.

Live in comfort! The 16 x 16' main cabin sits about 10 ft high, with a sweeping vista of the gorgeous fruit trees and tropical landscape. Its upper living space offers a kitchen area, sink, counters, and propane burner for food preparation, with plenty of room for a bed, desk and other furnishings. An enclosed toilet room is next to the entry. Below is a guest room, banana ripening room, tool storage and outdoor shower. Powered by its own solar system, it also has an on-demand hot water heater, and 1000 gal. Chem Tainer water catchment. The second cabin is a 12 x 12', and offers a similar living setup with kitchen area, sink, open living space and separate toilet room. It has its own solar system, outdoor shower, barrel catchment & on-demand hot water heater.
