Growing a better, greener tomorrow: Visiting Ma’o Organic Farms

Ma’o Organic Farms

As you drive up the Wai'anae Coast, especially coming from Honolulu, you might notice a wonderful sense of vibrancy growing as you go further west. This invigorating feeling intensifies as you pull up to the seemingly quiet fields of Ma’o Organic Farms. As you look up into the incredibly dry Wai’anae Range in the background, you may be surprised that anything grows out here, let alone a commercial farm that sells a huge volume of produce. You can feel that something very special must be happening here to not only survive but to flourish. Ma’o is definitely doing something special.
