If you need some delicious Hawaiian macadamia nuts please get some from our family friends, the Maigrets. Our kids can’t get enough of these wholesome dried and unsalted nuts. Our customers agree the trick to making them so good is in the careful air-drying of the kernels. Other brands don’t compare. Just $7 for a half pound bag. Call or email us to make an order and we’ll put you in touch with Maigrets Family Farm. (808)589-7499.
