About Us

As peace corps volunteers in El Salvador, Kollette and Jason Stith discovered a love for coffee cultivation. We were able to follow our passion to the Big Island to grow 100% Kona Coffee… and there discovered macadamia nuts.

Mahina Mele Farm was born and with it our family as well. A beautiful place to raise our children Lucia, Izzie, and Asa. Together with our friend Morgan Perry, we dedicated our lives to cultivating gourmet Macadamia nuts and Kona coffee. We found our niche with organic dehydrated nuts and organic kona coffee, processed in our signature way. For a while, we were the only organic macadamia nuts on the shelf.

Mahina Mele Market opened in 2021, not only as a place to dehydrate the Macadamia nuts and press for oil but a brick and mortar to highlight all the farm has to offer and Pure Mana Hawaii skincare.  Kollette and Sue Mandini are the founders that utilize the organic macadamia nut oil as their carrier oil.

The market is also a place to recognize other local organic farmers and their goods made with integrity. We are grateful for the opportunity to produce such beautiful food and skincare from the bounty of this sacred island.Quality matters, family and community matters, and so does caring for our Aina. We stand behind our passion, thank you for all your love and support.
