Back in the 70’s, Hamakua Macadamia Nut Co. owner Richard decided Hawaiian Macadamia nuts needed to continue to grow on the island and limit the importation of nuts.

His business, Hamakua Mac Nut Farm, processes and sells 100% Hawaiian nuts. The visitor center is full of flavored nuts, popcorn, chocolate and coffee-all nutty and packaged to take home.

 Richard is also proud the business uses sustainable energy. Good for you, Richard!

Custom made ice cream with milk and cream from local Hawaiian dairies, yes, please!  18% butterfat, oh, why not!  No big commercial operation, it’s all hands on at Tropical Dreams Ice Cream Company. 

Owner John even makes custom ice creams for those who ask and ships to San Diego in a freezer container.  My quarts of Banana Storm and Dark Cherry Chocolate Chip should arrive by the time I get home.
