Our Kahuku Farm bee, adorned in a plantation style hat and affectionately known as “Meli” (which means bee in Hawaiian) is symbolic of our agricultural history in Hawaii. Bees are important to the pollination of crops grown in the islands, which is why we selected the bee as our symbol, says Kylie Matsuda . We know that bees have been producing honey dating back to the mid 1800’s. Without them, many of our crops would not exist today.
We, at Kahuku Farms are committed, along with our busy bees, to increase and sustain the development of tropical and diversified agriculture in Hawaii.
