August 28, 2018. OMG, about time for an update! No excuse now that I have a great laptop. But first content that matters to you.
It’s nice to receive unsolicited comments about our ‘awa. This is from a recent harvest of a young ‘awa, about 18 mo., to which: “Just want to say mahalo for sharing your Mahakea ‘opio with us. It got rave reviews for flavour and balanced strength. It gave a few who had tried awa in other Pacific Islands a new outlook on how ono awa can be. They felt the effects which came on subtlety yet steadily. Look forward to catching up over an apu or two when I return. Ahui hou!” MS, 8/24/18.
To-date we have nine (9) one-pound fresh frozen and ground bricks at $25/brick. Please contact us if you are interested. We are having a party in the beginning of October to celebrate a major renovation – concrete pours – at our facilities. Therefore this offer ends September 30, 2018. Mahalo!

September 30. 2017. Today’s inspection of the ‘awa baskets for the young ‘opihikao reveal differences likely caused by different media, ca. 2 mim.
August 17, 2017. Inspection of an ‘awa ‘apu (aka ‘awa papakea) in a basket/tub combo. The cage also serves to protect the young shoots from predation.
August 3, 2017. ‘Awa baskets are an alternative to conventional direct soil cultivation. There are tradeoffs in their use. We’re doing the ‘awa baskets to more efficiently use space on our farm. Anticipated ‘awa basket harvest is August 2018. Video duration: 3:16
