Welcome to 13 Mile Farm in Kurtistown, Hawai’i.

We are located on six rural acres about 12 miles south of Hilo, on the east side of the Big Island of Hawai’i. Our farm is mauka the highway and near Plant It Hawai’i, Punachicks Farm, and Rainbow Friends Animal Sanctuary. We plan for self-sufficiency by growing fruits and vegetables, and raising chickens, goats, and bees.

As we add to this website you may learn more about us at our Facebook page. Please visit and please ‘like’ us to receive updates about 13-Mile Farm from FB. Mahalo!!
