AN AUTHENTIC COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
Our family acquired the farm in 1977, with the intention of healing the land and bringing it back to its natural, organic state after years of being exposed to harmful chemicals and conventional farming practices. Our ideals for the farm are based on respecting the earth and cultivating the land in a sustainable manner.
Our five acre farm has been and is currently being worked organically, completely herbicide and pesticide-free. Ideally we prefer to utilize a closed circle of inputs, by creating our own amendments such as using compost and recycling all of the organic matter from the farm. We do also purchase certified organic fertilizers to add to our fertility.
Kuaiwi are pre-contact, ancient rock mounds, running from ocean to mountain. They were used during the Kona Field System to separate the Kihapai (growing fields). These features are visible on our farm.
At Kuaiwi Farm we feel incredibly lucky that we get to do what we love. We’d love for you to take part in the Kuaiwi Farm experience. For more information, get in touch!
