Purdy's Macadamia Nut Farm
Purdy's Macadamia Nut Farm Molokai Reviews
Pleasant stop on Moloka'i May 13, 2008
I spent two years living in Hawai'i and during that time was able to visit each island. While on a trip to Mau'i, I took a tour that went to the island of Moloka'i. Purdy's Mac Nut Farm was a stop on this tour, however it can be visited without a tour group.
At the farm, you will probably find the owners Tuddie and Kammy Purdy welcoming you. They were very friendly and inviting. They really radiate the aloha spirit. You will be treated to a small tour of the farm, and given a short explanation of how they grow and harvest the mac nuts.
There is a shelling station where you can shell fresh mac nuts yourself. The different between a fresh nut and the kind you buy in the store is incredible.
There is a small gift shop at the farm where you can buy mac nut products. They sell fresh mac nuts, roasted or raw, as well as mac nut oil and mac blossom honey. The gift shop also sold jewelry and small souvenirs made from mac and/or koa wood. I bought a beautiful plumeria bracelet made from both types of wood.
The entire experience was very pleasant. It is also a quick little visit, so you can fit it into other activities you wish to do while on the island.
This is the website for the farm.
