Interesting stop!

Very glad we checked out Purdy's. It's a very small, family operation. The owner was very informative. Is a must to see if ever on Molokai!

If on Molokai, Hawaii you must visit Purdy's . He invites you on his orchard of 80 year old Macadamia nut trees and you must have 20+ minutes to listen to his educational tour. Do not interrupt him, he memorizes the tour in a sequence. First stand under the trees and look at the developing nuts then see how he... More

All natural, herbicides used. They only roast the macadamia nuts they do not use oil. Fun cracking open the dried macadamia nuts and eating them. Have nuts, honey and other products from the farm available for sale.

You can feel the aloha for the aina here. You park in a turnout along the road. You enter into a tunnel of trees, tropical plants, vines, and the sounds of local music. as you proceed along the path, the smell of burning macadamia nut shells and husks...then, you come upon a person, (sometimes the owner, sometimes his sister) cracking...

Note: This venue was part of a Molokai tour and this review is included in my review of Hawaii Ocean Project tour to Molokai. The next stop was Purdy's Natural Macadamia Nut Farm, an avoidable venue if you are on your own. Although we learned about macadamia nut processing and how this venue does it organically, the owner was anything... More

A must see. Learned how to crack a nut and saw where the roasting happens. Was able to purchase nuts on right from the farm as well as honey made from the blossoms of the macadamia nut trees. Met the owner of the farm. Very cool dude. Bring cash for goods.

The owner looks like a hippie/surfer out of the 60's and this stop was a highlight of Molokai. He was very informative about Macadamia nuts and its harvesting. Then gave us a chance to crack fresh nuts and taste them and then the guy sliced fresh coconut and let us dip them in different macadamia nut sauces.

This is a small family owned organic farm where you learn how macadamia nuts are grown and harvested, but in an organic non-industrial way. You can crack your own raw nuts and compare raw to roasted samples. Also available is oil and honey. It's only 5 acres. Location is about 2 miles west of Kualapu'u. On Lihi Pali Avenue, above...

We stopped by to check out this small family owned and operated nut farm on Molokai. The owner gave us a short, informative talk about macadamia nut trees from planting to harvest. Then we had an opportunity to crack and taste the nuts, as well as sample some of the honey from the farm. Well worth the short stop.

My husband and I stopped here when we spent the day on Molokai. What a great find! The owner was a hoot and gave a very interesting and informative talk about his plantation. He pointed out the various stages of ripeness of the nuts on the trees around us and then let us have a go at cracking and eating... More
