Kapalua’s Hua Momona Farms announces new service model
KAPALUA — Hua Momona Farms (HMF) has announced it will begin transitioning from their “pandemic operational model” of supplying subscription farm boxes each week.
With the island returning to a more normal environment, the farm will focus on farmer’s markets for retail distribution.
HMF will offer new varieties of vegetables starting at the weekly Farmer’s Market in Napili on one or more of Saturdays and Wednesdays by August.
HMF will no longer offer new multi-delivery veggie box subscriptions, and single box deliveries will end Thursday, July 29.
Current multi-delivery veggie box subscribers expecting deliveries after July 29 will be updated on their options.
HMF will still offer a variety of products available for convenient home delivery, such as nutrient-rich premium micro greens, unique canned and private-label products.
The farm will announce those in the normal weekly communication and list an expanding inventory on the farm website at www.huamomonafarms.com.
Hua Momona Farms had the pleasure of serving the community in so many ways during the pandemic by pivoting to provide weekly vegetable box deliveries safely to customers’ doorsteps, joining multiple large food drive events and providing weekly food supplies to those on the front lines helping the homeless on Maui.
The farm is also pleased to introduce the newly established Hua Momona Foundation, a nonprofit affiliated with Hua Momona Farms to provide food to those in need on Maui and to introduce the youth of Maui to modern agriculture techniques relating to the growing and production of food.
While the foundation is accepting charitable donations for these causes, it will also be sponsoring a series of special events to help raise funds in support of their important mission.
The foundation, in collaboration with Chef Zach Laidlaw of Hua Momona Farms, will be offering a limited number of extraordinary farm-to-table dining experiences at sunset and under the stars at the new gathering spot, Hale la Huna, at the farm.
