Check out our farm!
— INTERN TESTIMONIALS —
I booked a tour last week for me and my 8 year old son, and it was absolutely fantastic. Jon’s passion, knowledge, and over all wonderful personality made it so fun and educational. My typically very shy little boy even felt comfortable enough to ask lots of questions. We loved the one on one private attention that we were able to experience.
We are now back home in Arizona longing for more island time as you can imagine. Our family talked quite a bit about the tour, and are eager to get started on our own garden again (even though I have a black thumb, I really want to learn more, and try again & again until I can get it right). I feel after learning so much from Jon that it is so important to live as sustainable as possible in the middle of the city where we live.
Thank you again so so much!
I just finished the 2021 summer internship and I highly recommend for first and second year college students. I learned so many things you can’t get in a regular class. The farm is beautiful! Healthy food forests that are amazing to roam and lovely trails along the mac nut forest. The living space was comfortable, clean, and spacious. HOT WATER! All you need is on the farm. Wifi isn’t the best but why be on your phone anyway. Expect rain but it makes you more appreciative when the sun’s out. Make sure to voice your interests and ask questions. The directors are a wealth of knowledge.
My time here at Big Island Farms has been nothing but a blessing in my life. I have not only learned so much here but I have grown as a person in so many unexpected ways. I want to say a big thank you to the directors. They are amazing people and made my stay here even more amazing!! I will miss this farm and everyone in it!
