“Our goal is to provide the people of Hawaii with the freshest produce of the highest quality.”

Evonuk Farms

Terry and I formally partnered with my father, Edward, in 2007. Edward and Joan have farmed continuously since 1975. Our main focus is culinary herbs (20-plus variates). We also grow some specialty vegetables such as French beans, Yellow Wax beans, specialty eggplants and lettuces. Our business has remained fairly steady over the past few years but we have grown slightly by finding new customers for our produce. The rising costs of farming (fertilizer, fuel, packaging, etc) and the continuous introduction into Hawaii of new diseases, pathogens and insects which threaten our crops are some of our pressing challenges.

We produce primarily for restaurants and grocery stores. Residents can find our retail herb packets at Foodland, Times Supermarkets, Cash ‘N’ Carry, Whole Foods, Napili Market, Lahaina Farms, Rodeo General Store, Kula Country Farms, Down to Earth and Mana Foods.
