Upcoming Events and News
Hāna Ranch is dedicated to serving as responsible stewards of the land, weaving together the resources of the ranch and community to nurture a thriving economy that will benefit Hāna for generations.
Save the date – the Hāna Rodeo returns on Saturday, January 27th, 2018. There will be fun for the whole ʻohana with events, games and concessions.
Last month, Sarah Gray from Hive Mind Maui installed three beehives here at the ranch. We’re thrilled to have new pollinators in our ʻulu orchard. They will also be busy pollinating our banana and citrus groves as well. In the future we hope to have our homegrown honey for sale at the farm stand.
Join us at Sugar Beach Events for our 5th annual farm-to-table celebration of local agriculture featuring local chefs and student-produced films! This year’s event will feature additional chef-run farm-to-table stations (including Hāna Ranch’s Executive Chef Gary Johnson) and an expanded silent auction with mobile bidding.
May 20, 2017 marks the 4th Annual Farm Day, a statewide movement to honor farmers and encourage families to visit and thank those who work hard to grow our local produce. This statewide effort is a collaboration of over 30 farms and 50 farmers markets with support from Edible Hawaiian Islands, FarmLovers Market, Kohala Village Hub, Ocean Vodka and RedBarn Farmstand.
Our mechanic Evan recently completed transitioning on one of cultivating tractors from a gas-powered motor to an electric motor. We caught up with Evan to learn more about how he converted our tractor.
Join Provisions Chef Gary Johnson, trained butcher Morgan Maki and farmer Dave Fitch in a whole hog butchery workshop and lunch.
Last month our team and their families headed to Kipahulu for the day to volunteer at Kapahu Living Farm and help dig out their taro patch and get fresh water flowing. The Kipahulu ʻOhana is a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching Hawaiian traditions through hands-on classes and demonstrations. Since 1995 they have been sharing native Hawaiian practices in Kipahulu to residents and visitors.
Join edible Hawaiian Islands, Hāna Ranch, and Travaasa Hāna as they kick off the 24th Annual Taro Festival with a fundraiser Poi Supper on Friday April 29th at the ranch. All proceeds from the dinner will be donated to the Hāna Youth Center to continue to grow and support the next generation in Hāna.
It is common to find homemade chili pepper water in homes all over the state, and our team loves to make their own. Especially since we grow these peppers on the farm! We posted this recipe on our Facebook page a few months ago and it was a hit. This is a “family-friendly” version that Farmer Dan likes to use, if you want to spice it up more, double the amount of peppers.
