GROWING IN SACRED WAYS
All things are planted in a sacred way with thought, permission, blessings and prayer.
We came here hearing the call of the island and family.
Lovers of nature and animals you will find one of our many cats wandering around the farm keeping an eye out to when things are in season. Azalea loves being in the grove and helping dig and plant new trees, Mercury loves watching over "her chickens", and Tumi and Dini keep an eye out on the agave and Taro.
NO SPRAY - SUPPORTING POLLINATORS
While we take our time gettin our beehives up and running we are making sure to prepare the land for them. We are a strict no spray zone and use no pesticides on the land. Which is uncommon in this region of Hawaii.
We are super excited to be growing one of the worlds rarest cacao "jaguar cacao". While many on the island dismiss this cacao for our purposes it is perfect as we continue to expand our ceremonial cacao offerings.
We've been blessed to have some of the best eggs here on the island!! Well, thats what everyone who has them says!! Organic, free range and they come in a plethera of colors!!
Our greenhouse is up but we are still keeping up with the fruit we have when it comes in season but hoping to start this soon and share more with you!!
NO SPRAY ZONE
It might sound simple, but this is no simple task in a region and land where everything, everything grows. The common practice around here is POISON in any and every form. It lines the shelves and has whole sections to it in any hardware store.
When we first moved here it was suggested we spray, that there was no other solution to keeping away the weeds. So instead of that we fenced our property in to keep neighbors from spraying on it, and hired help to pull out the choke weed that had taken over our arbor.
Does this approach cost us 20 times more? Yes it does and it involves more people, more animals.
But for know we don't see an alternative and we keep looking for ways to plant in a more sustainable way and add animals to the farm that will help us keep the weeds down.
We give back..
We donate a lot of the food grown to our local community so whenever you are buying or investing in our products know that your are helping many.
While this island might look like paradise not everything thrives here, there is a huge food sovereignty issue here on the islands with many people not having access to healthy food.
Most of the resources on the island go first to tourists.
WE ARE A NO KILL ZONE
It seems the word is out and we keep having animals come or sent to us that need rehab, help, and a safe home.
From butterflies, birds, goats, sheep, cats and dogs all find a safe haven here.
