Hawaii Story Ideas
Much of the land on Hawaii Island that was covered with sugarcane in the 19th and 20th centuries has now given way to diversified farming – flowers, tropical fruit, coffee, nuts, artisan veggies, pulp wood, aquaculture. These farms, using sustainable practices, are supplying local chefs who demand the freshest ingredients for their famous Hawaii Regional Cuisine dishes. Some farmers welcome visitors, and you can also meet them at the many farmers’ markets around the island.
Hawaii AgVentures, a program of the Hawaii Island Farm Bureau, combines the people, foods and farms of Hawaii Island into experiences of diverse cultures, extraordinary produce and natural beauty. Hawaii AgVentures works to coordinate your interests with participating growers and processors, providing a full range of visits around the island.
