Committed to Our Local Farmers
Supporting and encouraging our local farmers increases food security, provides fresh produce, and bolsters our economy. Food security is one of the most important aspects of living on an island. Currently, about 85% of food in Hawai’i is imported. Growing various fruits and vegetables on Kaua’i ensures that the community can be fed with high-quality produce. Buying local food means supporting a hardworking farmer or rancher while also reducing the carbon footprint caused by shipping transports. That money is recycled into the local community and stimulates economic growth for the island.
Sustainable Food Projects
Today, Grove Farm remains committed to our local farmers through the diversified use of our 12,500 acres dedicated as Important Agricultural Lands. This means that the land can’t be used for anything else but agriculture. Most of these lands are currently being leased out to farmers, tropical flower growers, cattle ranchers, and native plant nurseries.
Other Sustainability Initiatives
Grove Farm's vision is to build a sustainable Kaua'i by being a leader in social entrepreneurship and island-enhancing activities while remaining deeply committed to preserving the island's cultural and historical linkages - whether it be through the preservation of historic sites, promoting alternative energy sources, supporting agriculture and food production, education and propagation of plants, encouraging a healthy lifestyle or protecting water sources.Learn about other initiatives
