Description

Kona Coffee Living History Farm extends its hours, 10 am-3 pm, during the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival Week. “Hands on History” activities will be held at the Farm every day at 11 am, which may include Pan Roasting Coffee, Sustainability in the Kitchen Garden, Japanese Calligraphy, and others. This farm tells the story of Kona’s coffee pioneers during the early 20th century. Meet a “Kona Nightingale,” or watch how farmers used the kuriba and hoshidana to mill and dry coffee. Visit the 1920's farmhouse where you may find the homemaker starting the fire to cook rice or making musubi for the farmer's lunch. “Talk story” with living history interpreters and discover the story behind Kona’s gourmet crop. Be sure to sample the farm's 100% Kona coffee and purchase some. Kona Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with all proceeds going directly to educational programs and preservation projects.
