Took my wife on a sheep hunt with professional guide Jon Sabati. She took a beautiful gold medal trophy Mouflon ram at 50-60 yards. Saw several feral rams in the 30+ range & one nice boar who offered us several opportunities to take but we passed as we were happy with the nice Mouflon.

At about milepost 104 on the Kona Coast is the Kealia Ranch shop where you can by great beef of every cut to cook at home. The flavor is amazing - fresh, not processed and vibrant. They also sell shaved ice, which I quickly became addicted to- try the local flavors. The kimo size is ENORMOUS! Shaved ice is not... More

The best Shave Ice we had on the Big Island. Walked into the store, saw the heavy-duty professional 'shaver' (NOT a 'grinder') and knew we had come to a real Shave Ice place. Katrina had a good selection of great flavors for the three portion sizes (small, medium and 'SUMO'). The medium was as big as a 'large' in most... More

Katrina is great at what she does and is full of info and customer service. Beef and shave ice are both great. I get bones there for my dogs too!

We visited the ranc store and got some smoothies, and ice cream. It was really good. They had grass-fed beef for sale and very good prices - especially for being in Hawaii.

This review is just for the Shave Ice and Popsicles at the Kealia Ranch Store on Highway 11 near Captain Cook. Excellent Shave Ice flavors and the homemade popsicles were great. Bring cash, though. They don't have a credit card reader, so they take an imprint of your credit card. I didn't even think merchants were allowed to do that... More

I think the claim for "best shaved ice on the island" must be true! We enjoyed 3 different flavored syrups in delicious shaved ice. The grass-fed beef raised right on the ranch there is available for purchase, at good prices (better than mainland U.S., I think). I enjoyed browsing through their gift shop; they have a variety of island and... More
