Hōkū Nui is committed to working to increase food security by providing local food to reduce imports and fill the gaps in the Maui agricultural economy. Meat and produce will be produced on the land using regenerative agriculture approaches.
Hawaii is 85% dependent on food imports. It is estimated that if food imports were halted due to a natural disaster, shipping strike, or other unforeseeable circumstance, there are only 5—7 days worth of food to feed people in the state.
Hōkū Nui is dedicated to providing responsible, positive environmental, cultural, human, and economic inputs to strengthen the resources of the local community. The strategy is to focus on developing on-site inputs that support a resilient ecosystem.
HNM’s desire is to influence positive economic change and set an example for other landowners in Hawaii, as well as the land development industry, by using tested strategies to illustrate the possibilities.
