Weclome to Upcountry Maui, where you will enjoy green rolling hills, ocean views, cool breeze and light rains.

Hōkūnui is a Regenerative Farming Community based on 258-acres in Makawao. The design of the overall project integrates soil regeneration, water conservation, culture, native reforestation, food production, off-grid energy, housing and employment. Agriculture serves as the foundation of the Hōkūnui community and is the first component of the project that was developed.

Walking trails will lead you from your back yard, through the green pastures alongside cattle, sheep, and chickens, to our Farm Store and community area. Pick up fresh produce and meat from the Farm Store, or a ready-to-eat meal from the food truck, imu or pizza oven. In the evening, take a short walk from Hōkūnui into Makawao town to enjoy dinner at our farm-to-table restaurant, the Makawao Steak House.

Less than 10% of the land is dedicated to housing, leaving over 230-acres in permanent agricultural and cultural operations.

All homes will be off-grid with photovoltaic energy, battery storage and generator back up.  Water will also be off-grid with our private well and potable water system, along with rain catchment and surface water harvesting for agricultural water.

The housing component consists of 21 agriculturally zoned lots with 2 residential homes on each lot. Hōkūnui will be building the homes to be sold individually on the open market.
