Family owned and operated, Honopua Farm is an organic farm located in the South Kohala district of the Big Island. When the farm was first planted more than 30 years ago, Marie and Bill McDonald grew mostly flowers. Once they retired, their daughter Roen and her husband Ken Hufford took over tending the soil and added a variety of organic vegetables to mix. Today, the site is especially known for its vegetables, lavender and cut flowers.
Honopua Farm’s organic vegetables and flowers can be purchased at the Waimea Homestead Farmers Market on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to noon, and the farm also supplies a number of local restaurants. Travelers can only visit Honopua Farm on select personal farm tours.
