Fari's Forest Farm

Help Us Plant Our Farm :)

My name is Patrick and for 15 years I've spent my life sharing beauty with others. It's time for an adventure, and the opportunity to share that beauty with nature!

My Partner and I have recently invested all our savings, the sale of our home, and business into 3 acres of natural forest on the Big Island of Hawaii. While we will be living in what many of our friends and family have called paradise knowing its location, It must be said this is no vacation for us or by any means beachfront property ... But we expect nothing less than an adventure from what this magical land has to offer :)

Recently we've had many people ask us what we need, or what we want for a wedding present, going away presents, or just kind offerings from people who know how hard this change is going to be ... When we've responded with "get us a goat, or a egg laying hen" or a help us plant a breadfruit tree, or come help us clear land of the horrible invasive alabezia trees, we're met with a good laugh ... We couldn't be more serious.

We've been told by people how they would love to help us in anyway on our new journey so most of all we need help with starting this farm right which will take alot of time, energy and funds. We already have over a yearlong chore list once moved, and a few locals that are helping us with starter plants as a few of the select fruits we want to specialize in must be started from seed which will take a few years to mature ... So if you want to help us along this path please don't spend 5- on a card, or 50- on a box wrapped with something in that we won't be able to take when we move ...

... Give us the chance to see this dream become reality , Help Us Plant The Fari's Farm :)
