• That’s one Tired Rooster

    Posted on May 8, 2016
    After a long hard day of crowing and digging for bugs this rooster is ready for his nap.  Little Buddy nearly died as a young chicken, his legs were paralyzed.  We were able to rehabilitate him and he shows eternal gratitude by being a loving lap rooster.  He enjoys nothing more than being held and playing a quick game of […]
  • Happy Feet, our newest peep

    Posted on April 23, 2016
    Spring is peep season and we have a bunch of new ones.  But Happy Feet is a first for us — she has one blue foot and one yellow.  Among the 20-30 new babies she will always be recognized for her special feet.  The drought is persisting and the chickens try their best to scratch for bugs and weeds but […]
  • Two (formerly) Blind Mice

    Posted on December 6, 2015
    These precious peeps were blinded when mosquitoes stung their eyes.  They were kept in a box until the eyes healed and they bonded completely during that time.  Now free birds, Big Mouse carefully helps Mousette to survive.  She is fragile and has developed “corkscrew neck” which causes her to have problems flying and getting onto her perch at night.  The […]
  • Kona Coffee Festival

    Posted on November 2, 2015
    We will have our products for sale at the Holualoa Art Walk on Saturday, Nov 7 from 9 AM until 1 PM.  This is the start of the Kona Coffee Festival and there are dozens of vendors and judging of the coffee as well.  The first year that we entered our coffee we won the chef’s choice award for it!

  • Enough Rain! And Take Those Mosquitoes Too

    Posted on September 10, 2015
    We have had more rain in the past 30 days than we had in all of 2014.  While rain is good, too much is making things really difficult.  The coffee on the trees that was growing on drought weakened branches has now filled out and is weighing the branches down to the ground, sometimes snapping them off.  The weeds that […]
  • 100% Kona Coffee K-Cups and they are in a Compostable Filter Pod

    Posted on January 9, 2015
    We have succeeded in packaging our 100% Kona coffee into fully compostable filter pods compatible with all single serve brewers that use K-Cups.  We did not want to contribute to landfill with plastic cups and foil tops.  After a year of searching we found a company that packages our 100% Kona coffee in filter pods that are individually sealed in […]
  • What’s up with the Airplane on our Label?

    Posted on January 9, 2015
    We are often asked why there is an airplane on our label.  The answer is that Debbie has flown planes, privately and professionally, for about four decades now.  Although she has never personally flown the one shown on our label, we thought that it was a very nice plane to be used to represent Mokulele Farms.  The word mokulele is […]
  • Baby B – the Miracle Chicken

    Posted on October 10, 2014
    This little chicken was fine for her first 6 weeks.  She was then somehow injured and was unable to walk at all.  Our compassionate vet took the bird for a few weeks, gave her vitamin shots, worked with her daily and now this miracle chicken is completely healed.  She never learned that cracked corn was food so while she finished […]
  • Hurricane? What Hurricane?

    Posted on August 10, 2014
    When the chickens heard about the hurricanes due to strike the island they had two real concerns.  Do Mom and Dad have enough corn scratch to last a few extra days?  And, if there is any thunder can we please come inside the house?  Chickens don’t seem to mind rain and some wind but thunder and lightening are just out […]
  • Goldilocks, Our Senior Hen

    Posted on July 19, 2014
    Our best guess is that Goldilocks is at least 6 years old and still faithfully laying eggs for us.  Most chickens lay for about 2 years and then call it quits.  Goldilocks likes to take her spa time every month or so.  She will find a nest away from the crowd and stay there for a couple of months, coming […]
