Greenwell Coffee Farm Friends
Here’‘s a list of our friends and links to their websites You might find something of interest to you by checking out some of our friends here in Kona and on the mainland.
http://www.clintfoundation.org Our friends, John and Nancy McClintock, established the Clint Foundation to provide financial support to students pursuing higher education. Its unique approach to this support is based on the requirement that students receiving support from the Foundation must work for a portion of their educational expenses. Those funds will then be matched by funds from the Foundation and its participating colleges. John and Nancy commit a portion of the proceeds from their Vista Hills Estate Organic Coffee to this important cause.
Kona Historical Society
Kona Historical Society is next door to our farm located on the site of my Great Grandfather’‘s original settlement and general store. Through the years, the Society has been recognized as one of the premiere historical societies in Hawaii. There is a lot see in the old store and at the Uchida Kona Coffee Living History Farm.
Daniel Swanson is one of our tour guides on the farm and the person we call on when it comes time to help our Japanese tourists as he is fluent in that language. When he is not at the farm, Daniel is taking care of his guest house just down the road from the farm. If you want to get a feel of what it is like to live in Mauka Kona, give Daniel a call and book a stay at the Kona Ohana Guest House.
