Kauai Organic Farms is a family owned and operated farm on the North Shore of Kauai. Kauai is known as the Garden Island of Hawaii, it offers nutrient rich soils and a constant supply of fresh rainwater. It has proven to be the ideal location for our specialty organic farm.
A Family Farm
Phil and Linda Green have owned Kauai Organic Farms for the last 9 years. Originally from Michigan, they met in college and have been married for over 30 years. After moving to North Carolina in 1979, they began visiting Kauai regularly and always knew it held a special place in their heart.
After Phil retired from over twenty years of reforestation work in North Carolina, Phil and Linda decided to pursue their dream of owning a farm in Hawaii. In 2004 they packed up and moved to Kauai. With little knowledge of growing ginger, they took a risk and purchased an established farm growing four acres of ginger. Slowly they expanded and added turmeric and galangal to their product offerings.
Phil and Linda continually make improvements with their growing techniques and cover cropping. They now manage up to 15 employees at any given time and are passionate for sustainable agriculture. They keep extensive records and visit their fields several times a day, continuously inspecting the growth and plant needs.
Phil and Linda continue to enjoy the Kauai lifestyle, taking advantage of the beautiful land and ocean activities, and being active members of their communities. They enjoy watching the sunrise each day, tackling the daily challenges that exist with growing and sustaining a business, and get much satisfaction at the end of the day by watching the sky colors change over their fields. They truly are living their dream.
