I read in Edible Hawaiian Islands that Tuddie Purdy owns Purdy's Natural Macadamia Nut Farm, a hidden must-stop in Moloka'i's central Ho'olehua. Macadamias are produced yr-around! He said his nuts are healthier then Mauna Loa brand - healthier, no additives, oils, preservatives, no cholesterol & a source of monounsaturated fats, fiber & minerals. His trees grown without pesticides or fertilizers. They also sell mac nut honey!
Mauna Loa brand has commercial operation on the Big Island, world's largest mac nut retailers.
Purdy's Natural Macadamia Nut Farm open from magazine:

We stopped by for a short visit while staying on island. It was ok but not really a destination to us. Love the CookHouse. I would certainly disagree that a day is more than adequate to see the island. but if all you have is a day, then I would suggest heading east. That drive is amazing.
