We have been blessed to call North Kohala home for over a decade. This is where we raise our family and run our farm based nonprofit, the Hawai’i Institute of Pacific Agriculture (HIP Agriculture). As educators we work with island youth around issues of food sovereignty, farmer training and resiliency. We facilitate educational programs for students (grades K-20) and host retreats for all ages. Our farm provides an abundant supply of fresh produce to the Hawi Farmers Market, Kohala Farm to School program, residential programs and beyond.
Starseed Ranch has a vibrant history of sustainability and community, and we are honored to steward these 26 acres filled with fruit trees, gardens, bamboo, timbers, medicines and animals. The land holds a special place in our hearts as we were married here in 2011, and returned many times over the years to spend time with previous owners Andre and Jyoti. We always dreamed of living here and in Spring of 2020 we were blessed with the opportunity to purchase the land with a partner. We are excited to be able to welcome more people to this beautiful and sacred place. Please let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to hosting you on the land soon!

About Starseed Ranch
Starseed Ranch was originally built by Kenny Loggins as a Y2K bunker and personal estate for his family. The 26-acre ranch is completely off grid, with one of the only privately powered micro hydro-electric and solar systems on the island, beautiful unique architecture that blends into the landscape, lodging accommodations and a diverse tropical orchard and farm. At 500-feet elevation, a stream runs through both sides of the property. In the center of the property covered walkways supported by ‘ōhi‘a beams lead to guest quarters, a large outdoor kitchen and dining area and movement studio.
Andre and Jyoti Ulrych purchased the estate in 2003 with a vision of building a world renowned place of learning and healing and formed a foundation to carry on their legacy at Starseed.
