The Kona Coffee Living History Farm is a 5.5 acre historic coffee farm first homesteaded in 1900 and is the only living history coffee farm in the nation. It brings the coffee pioneer’s story to life by depicting the daily lives of early Japanese immigrants during the period of 1920-1945. Visitors may walk through the coffee and macadamia nut orchards, tour the historic farmhouse, talk story with the interpreters and visit with the donkey and chickens. A “living history” program tells their story through the use of historic buildings, artifacts, and authentic landscapes. Living history gives students and visitors an opportunity to experience history “brought to life” by costumed interpreters who demonstrate traditional crafts, agricultural activities, and the everyday tasks of people from the past.
The Farm is open for tours and 100% Kona coffee sales Monday—Friday, with the gate opening at 10:00am and closing at 2:00pm. Be sure to be there by 1:00pm so that you have enough time for a full tour.
