About Us

We do things a bit differently, and that's the way we like it!


Our Story

Brought together by an anti-farming bill in 2013 the Agricultural producers of Hawaii Island formed a group to advocate for Local Farmers. HFRU had humble beginnings and remains so to this day; founding member Richard Ha captures our story.

Our Team

Our grassroots Council includes Ag producers and growers from all sectors and community groups.
