Going bananas from Kapaa, HI
Going bananas

Farm Name: Going bananas

Year Farm Established: 2010

Location: Kapaa, HI

Years I’ve been farming: 5 years

Animals I raise: Soon to have chickens and goats

Crops I grow: Bananas, papayas, breadfruit, breadnut, coconut, coco, bamboo, peppers, beans, kale, tomatoes, vanilla, lilicoi, kiwi, longan...

Hobbies I enjoy: I've always enjoyed farming. Half the family roots are in dairy farming.

Rock climbing, skiing, hiking, scuba, reading and taking care of the dogs.

The proudest moment on my farm: The first day my banana tree produced bananas. That was short lived. I proposed to my wife on Christmas Eve and was too preoccupied to pay attention to the weather report that said we were to have a frost overnight. That wiped out all of my tropicals. That happened in Scottsdale though. Should work out better here...

Pets: 2 Rotties... Skatje and Chance

Farm Motto: I know nothing and I proclaim to proclaim even less...

  Well, they are mostly perennials. It's actually not all that much when you take it all in. It's a work in progress.
