A Visit to Kona Coffee Living History Farm
Heading to the Big Island? If you’re interested in food, agriculture, and old Hawaii, be sure to catch the Kona Coffee Living History Farm. It was fun to see the way coffee used to be grown and processed, but the compelling part for me was the stories the docents told of the everyday life of the Uchida family, the Japanese-American farmers who homesteaded there beginning in 1900.
The farm and house are set up to show the life of the Uchidas from 1920 to 1945. Here are some highlights.
