Kumu Farms actually began right here on Oahu’s North Shore in 1980, on just 2 acres of land. Since then, they've migrated to the island of Molokai, and now farm over 120 acres on the Mahana-Ho’olehua Plain. Each week, they harvest 20,000 pounds of papaya, 4,000 pounds of Sweet Basil, and 500 pounds of other fresh herbs, including many specialty crops. And today, over half of their acreage is co-certified Organic.
Have you tried Wines that Rock? We introduced these wines at our Princeville location about three months ago, and as soon as we put them on the shelves, customers were picking up the bottles and even taking pictures with their favorite iconic rock albums featured on the labels.
Man how time flies! Can you believe that it is time again for the Eat Local Challenge? I know that we typically focus on this challenge once a year, but how did you do all year? Were you able to incorporate more items into your day to day diet? I hope so!
The 2nd annual Hawaii Food & Wine Festival begins tomorrow and runs through Sunday, September 9th. In support of the event, Foodland recently had the honor of hosting three of Hawaii's top chefs and local farmers at our stores as part of our Hawaii Farmers & Chefs events.
If you’re looking to share autumn joys with family and friends, then a special greeting card is the perfect way to connect. You can play up the lighthearted nature of the season with clever and funny cards. Or you can share a sentiment that’s warm and conversational.
I always get excited about Give Aloha, our annual community matching gifts program, because I know many organizations need the funding and that it positively affects the lives of so many in Hawaii. Each year more and more organizations sign up for our program -- this year, 668 organizations will participate!
What do you get when you combine a Hawaii Farmer and Hawaii Chef at Foodland? Great tasting food made with the freshest local ingredients from the farm to market! It’s exactly what you’ll find when you attend Foodland’s “Hawaii’s Farmers and Chefs” events at Foodland on Saturday, August 25th and September 1st.
I finally got to try the Silk® Fruit & Protein drinks! But let me tell you, it wasn’t easy….
When I originally got samples of the three flavors, I organized a tasting within our office for a few people to try. I ended up getting called into a meeting and when I came out, the containers were all empty and I had nothing but glowing reviews.
Then, I went and bought one at Foodland Beretania and my niece polished it off before I ever got a chance at it!
