Creating the Future of Agricultural Development on Maui Crafting the Future of Maui's Farming Sector


We take great pride in being the pioneering olive oil producer in Hawaii, not only due to our passion for our work, but also because we prioritize the well-being of Maui and the environment.

A significant amount of our food, which includes olive oil, is transported over the Pacific Ocean, resulting in the burning of fossil fuels that greatly harm the environment. It is with great enthusiasm that we announce our efforts to make a positive impact by cultivating olives and producing oil right here on the beautiful island of Maui.

It is our sincere hope that our breakthrough in producing Hawaii’s first commercial extra-virgin olive oil will help grow sustainable agriculture in the Hawaiian Islands, stem the tide of development and keep our islands green for future generations.
