Aloha!! | Loft & Learn Update from the Big Island of Hawai’i

Greetings Everyone!

The farm is progressing nicely, much of the extreme overgrowth has been cut down on a majority of the property except there is still some chopping to do in the back of the fruit orchard. The view and landscape is shaping up though and all of the hard work is paying off. The coffee is coming in beautifully and there are some really nice producing trees this season, so we are truly hopeful of having a pretty decent season. A nursery has already been started for introducing new trees for planting at the end of the year and plans are being drawn up to plant our new crops (lavender, vanilla and vineyard)by the end of next year. We have already enjoyed the lemon, lime, avocados, and mangoes on the farm. I have been experimenting with different smoothies and salads.

We are still working tirelessly in efforts of restoring and re branding the farm as well as renovating the house but we managed to get some stellar fun time in as well, Loft Style!!! Let’s see, Grandpa took Ace & Kingston out for a mega cool day where they went swimming at 2 different beaches, out to eat, back to an aquatics pool, stopped by a skate park, ran around a recreational beach and had a ball in a Halloween store!! Phew, I am tired for him, just typing all of that. The boys are still talking about their mega-fun day with Grandpa! While they were off having an awesome time, we were able to have a day/night out in Kona town. They have added a few really nice establishments and clubs to the strip making it more thriving scene for all. We’re also thrilled to be able to reconnect with our dear friends, Randy and Kamalani. We kept up while we moved to the mainland but it is truly nice to be able to catch up in person. All in all it’s been pretty hectic yet fun, the last few weeks.

p.s. the boys got signed to a model/talent agency (Focus International–New Faces) and Ace starts basketball today…

Until next time, Many Blessings,

Malaika

It’s Always a great time when Betty & Grace are around!! We had such a ball hanging out last week. Thanks for visiting us while also visiting friends on the outer banks of N.C. Of all the weeks it just so happened to be when Hurricane Matthew was roaring. So glad that everyone was safe and we were able to have an amazing time! Thanks for visiting and can’t wait until the next time!!
