Hawai‘i Island CSAs

South Kohala

CSA: Ka‘Ohi Nani Farm  We have been farming organically in Hawai‘i for over 25 years. This is our second season as your CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm. We offer a variety of organic vegetables, eggs, artisan breads, and much more. Weekly newsletters, recipes, complimentary flowers and herbs delivered right to your home or business. We deliver in Waimea and the surrounding areas. Our mission is to produce and distribute fresh, organic produce while serving as a sustainable and social network for our surrounding community. We hope to achieve this mission through our CSA, farm tours, local restaurants, feeding the homeless with our angel boxes and other community connections. Our goals at Ka ‘Ohi Nani farm are to produce fresh, healthy foods for our local community, provide a quality of life for the farmers and workers, and sustain economic viability for our farm with care and respect for natures diversity. We are on FB. Thank you, Steve and Lark Willey, Waimea – 885-1950

CSA: Punachicks Farm  We have 6 acres of pasture in Keaau where we raise organic pastured broiler (meat) chickens for the Big Island community. We are trying to fulfill a need that we saw for more local, wholesome alternatives to factory farmed supermarket chicken.  Our chickens are raised in small groups in portable pens that are moved daily to fresh pasture, so that they can enjoy green grass, bugs, fresh air, and sunshine. We use only certified organic feed to supplement what they get on the pasture.  We believe this is a much better model than that used on confinement “factory farms”, including “big organic” brands available in the supermarket. Our chickens are slaughtered respectfully and carefully hand processed, which produces a very high quality product. The chickens are available on a consistent basis (twice a month) and can be pre-ordered and picked up at the farm on processing days.  One taste and you’ll be hooked! Please visit our website www.punachicksfarm.com  to use our online order form, or email punachicksfarm@yahoo.com

North Kona

CSA: Adaptations Inc, 79-7500 Mamalahoa Hwy, Kealakekua   Certified organic. Choose between the basic feast and the gourmet feast. Members pick up their shares at a choice of four drop points: Kealakekua, Kailua-Kona (2), or Waimea. The basic feast contains mostly raw salad items – lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and a small amount of veggies. The gourmet feast is all that plus more veggies and tropical fruit. Everything is 100% locally grown. We have our own farm in Honaunau and we consolidate harvests from about 30 farmers and gardeners for weekly distribution through Fresh Feast and daily distribution to restaurants and limited stores.
