| The Hamakua North Hilo Agricultural Cooperative
Who We Are:
The Hamakua North Hilo Agricultural Cooperative (HNHAC) was formed in 1994 when the Hamakua Sugar plantation closed its operations. Originally formed to create opportunities for the displaced sugar workers we continue to serve the local residents of Hamakua offering affordable, long term leases of agricultural land.
We hold the State master leases for approximately 1,000 acres of land that are located between Paauilo and Honokaa, which is a few miles towards Waipio Valley from Honokaa town. All of our lands sit at a low-elevation and have irrigation water available from the Hamakua Ditch. These lands have been divided into 100 farms that range in size from 5 to 10 acres.
Our Mission Statement
The Hamakua North Hilo Agricultural Cooperative is a community of farmers working together to support each other and the Island community by successfully producing fine quality, sustainably produced Hamakua agricultural products.
