We are so happy to introduce you to our newest farm partner, located on the North Shore of the island of Kauai, Kauai Organic Farms, a family owned and managed turmeric and ginger farm (yummy!). Phil and Linda Green are the husband and wife team who own and manage the farm – and are the lucky couple who get to watch amazing sunsets over their fields at the end of each day. The Green’s share in the MegaFood mission of sustainable farming and pursuing your passion, we have loved getting to know them, and we know that you will too!
"Hawaii has unique growing conditions with ample sunshine, plenty of rain and the soil is great. Farming in Hawaii, how lucky am I?!"
Phil and Linda Green have owned Kauai Organic Farms for the last 10 years. Originally from Michigan, they met in college and have been married for over 30 years. After moving to North Carolina in 1979, they began visiting Kauai regularly and always knew it held a special place in their heart.
After Phil retired from over twenty years of reforestation work in North Carolina, Phil and Linda decided to pursue their dream of owning a farm in Hawaii. In 2004 they packed up and moved to Kauai. With little knowledge of growing ginger they took a risk and purchased an established farm growing four acres of ginger. Slowly they expanded and added turmeric and galangal to their product offerings.
