Listing Remarks

This is a leasehold property. The Vanillerie is a six-acre farm located in the Department of Agriculture lots in Kona, five minutes from the Kona airport. Originally a plumeria farm, it was purchased by the current owner in 1999 and developed as a tree seedling nursery. The Nursery has become one of Kona's most popular agri-tourism destinations. The Vanillerie is a robust working vanilla farm and gift shop selling food, body, and clothing products, it is regularly in the top 3 big Big Island attractions on Trip Advisor. It provides guests unique and immersive experiences where visitors can learn about this fascinating edible orchid that only flowers once a day in a year- during which time it must be hand-pollinated. The visitor center typically hosts thirty to fifty visitors per day, who have the opportunity to experience the delight of tropically grown vanilla. It comes with a farmworker home and a safari tent for luxury glamping with an ocean view, on property. This is a leasehold property. This is a true gem of an opportunity to own a sustainable farm business with great growth potential.
