Sneak Peek! The New Greenwell Farms Konawaena Farm

The rains have returned and our new “Konawaena” farm above the Mamalahoa Highway is coming to life. This is a 40-acre farm that we are currently developing and is the source of our award-winning Jeni K Signature Coffee.

This first view shows trees just stumped this year in the foreground. Next month, our crews will remove all but the best 3 or 4 vertical branches on each tree. Stumping the trees after two years of production is needed to maintain peak production from each tree. Next season these trees will cycle into production for two years before being stumped again.

The next section above are producing trees this season. The cleared area in the distance is the final 20 acres on this farm that we are planting this year.
