Kona RainForest Farms is your name – is it really a Rainforest?

By February 15, 2022No Comments

No, it’s not. We gladly inherited the name from the previous owner, but a true rainforest receives much more rain than we do, and there are parts of the island that qualify. A typical day here is sunny mornings and cloudy afternoons – perfect for our trees. We generally receive 60 to 70 inches of rain per year which is quite a bit, but a rainforest may get 250 inches or more in a year. We do not irrigate, so rain is critical to the farm.
