OUR LOCAL FARMERS AND
VALUE ADDED PRODUCERS

Locally Grown, Locally Made, Locally Valued

EVA WILLEY

IMG_0461.jpg

Our family farm is small and just getting started. This is the first time I've ever grown anything at this scale. My youngest daughter who is 2 years old is the main inspiration in getting started. She has a lot of food and environmental allergies and I believe one of the best ways to help her is by feeding her and my family with nutrient-dense/rich foods grown the Korean Natural Farming (KNF) way. I follow KNF practices using IMO in the soil and weekly fertilizing using the different inputs at the different stages of plant development. It brings me lots of joy being able to share with the community and provide nutrient dense food the natural farming way!

GRAMMY'S GARDEN

Dedicated to farming organically and with love, Grammy's Garden is run by North Kohala resident Shandelle Levine and her 'ohana. 

HALE NALUKEA

Laura La Gassa and Brendan McDougall are the hard-working farmers behind Hale Nalukea. They grow avocados, citrus, plantains, chili peppers, 'ulu (breadfruit), and more. 

HĀMĀKUA COAST PREMIUM LLC

Hāmākua Coast Premium was founded by a pair of Hawai`i bartenders inspired to make better cocktails by using local ingredients. Brandon Ventura and Kalei Jury have been friends for 15 years and have been bartending at resorts on the Kohala Coast for almost as long. That’s a lot of Mai Tais under their belts. After years of serving vacationers drinks made with artificial syrups made as far away as Florida and Kuala Lumpur, they thought they could do better. Kalei explains that the concept is simple, “we have some of the best raw ingredients here in Hawai`i, why don’t we use them in making drinks.”

HAWAII ROYAL HEMP

Hawaii Royal Hemp's CBD products have the only Kohala grown hemp CBD and include the healthy full spectrum of compounds found in hemp oil to support the entourage effect. For 41 years, they have been farming organically and regeneratively in Hawaii and were issued the first licenses to grow hemp by the State in May, 2018 and the US Departments of Agriculture in October, 2020. This family owned and operated farm hand-crafts all their value added products. Depending on the season, look for our produce on Food Hub website - it's nutritionally grown!

ISLAND HARVEST

Island Harvest is a certified organic farm growing macadamia nuts on over 700 acres in North Kohala on the Big Island of Hawaii. The macadamias are sold wholesale in-shell to various processors on the Big Island, where they are roasted and made into delicious products sold worldwide. Island Harvest also uses a small portion of their crop to make value-added products.

We believe that farming should be done with a holistic approach that cares for the land, trees, workers, and community. We are committed to organic and sustainable farming methods that eliminate the use of potentially harmful chemicals and reduce the use of off-farm inputs. We seek to build healthy soils, develop vibrant root systems, and optimize the value of macadamias to benefit the Kohala economy.
