North Hilo and Hamakua
North of Hilo on the slopes of Mauna Loa are prime farmland areas, many with spectacular ocean views. a running stream, pasture, and even your own waterfall is possible. Many are old sugar cane properties. Due to the closing of the sugar plantations, many areas have changed to diversified ag and many properties are just waiting for you to start that farm in paradise. Although prices are down, the starting price for standard 5-10 acre property with views is $350,000 and up. Factors which determine price can be varied, including access (some are quite secluded with 4-wheel dr. necessary, while others may be on paved rds), view, utilities, terrain, pasture or forest, etc.
