Cachia Parks, Farm Hand
Cachia works with the sheep and cattle at Hōkūnui.
Cachia was raised on a hundred-acre farm in Wisconsin with horses, cattle, chickens, dogs and cats. Cachia and her husband traveled coast-to-coast, before settling down on Maui to raise their daughter.
Reflecting her interest in healthy, local foods, Cachia previously worked in the produce department at Mana Foods in Paia.
“I have always loved working with animals and have a natural comfort with them. I enjoy using a gentle approach with them, which keeps the animals happy. When I was offered the opportunity to work with the animals at Hōkūnui, I jumped at the chance.”
