We restructured our class programs and hosting facility in harmony with COVID-19 guidelines. We created a safe and healthy environment for our interns, our instructors and our ohana (community).

— INTERN TESTIMONIALS —
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.
Big Island Farms offers much more than any other farming experience on Hawaii Island. Kitchen, internet, and onsite showers and toilets are sustainable and eco-friendly, and the amazing views, food forests, cabanas, and a natural landscape that includes a stream and waterfall brings comfort and a sense of connection to the land that will teach you to take care of yourself through taking care of the land.
I attended the 10 day mini workshop series at Big Island Farms in August and still cannot explain how much this short time there meant to me. Everything from the people, the farm, the detail behind every workshop, the food was more than perfect and i’m still so happy about the people I met there. Every single person i met on my journey there was full of knowledge and was genuinely just such a wise and genuinely kind soul. You truly come back as a changed person in the best way possible! 💛
