Good For You & Hawaii Too!
Hawai`i County gives Big Island farmers a chance to showcase their agricultural products while giving visitors a taste of a real farming experience.
Farming is a risky business due to the unpredictable forces of nature and markets. Depending solely on crop production puts farmers in near-constant survival mode. Recognizing the precarious existence of farmers, Hawai`i County wanted to provide added opportunities for farmers to generate additional income that would lead to greater economic stability for farmers and a stronger agricultural industry on the Big Island. At the same time, visitors were clamoring for new activities and wanted to get out onto farms and ranches. Thus, a timely economic match was created between – agriculture and tourism.
