Farmer Resources

Project MAHI’AI is an OHA funded grant project by Pa’upena Community Development to increase the capacity of Native Hawaiian farmers around Maui Island to work together and provide their community with healthy locally grown farm products.

In addition to an online catalog of products available for purchase, we provide tools and resources to our farmers to help in the journey of launching and managing a successful business.
