Elevated above the windward side of O`ahu in the ahupua`a of Kahalu`u, lies an estate where a veteran-owned and family operated single-origin cacao farm practices “malama ka `aina,” to care-for, cultivate, conserve and preserve using sustainable practices with the intent of contributing to future generations. Sadly, without mission driven locally influenced ag practitioners, travelers may never get to experience native places operated in this manner.
Join us as we visit a family that has perfected that practice of making chocolate on-island from bean-to-bar. While here, you may see other delicacies being raised like apple-bananas, coconut, starfruit, turmeric, avocado, mango, guava, breadfruit, lychee and kukui as well as the colorful floral of heliconia, awapuhi, and “torch” ginger flowers, each of which are an important niche in Hawaii’s agriculture. Your support will help advance our mission to create a diverse, safe, healthy, and sustainable Hawaiian farm with clean air, water, soil and power –economically, equitably, and ecologically for all to enjoy.
