Agricultural Parks

Manages agricultural lots at Hamakua, Kahuku, Keahole, Kekaha, Molokai, Pahoa, Panaewa, Waianae, Waimanalo I, and Kalaeloa.”

Agricultural parks are areas set aside specifically for agricultural activities to encourage continuation or initiation of such operations. The State’s Agricultural Park Program makes land available to small farmers at reasonable cost with long-term tenure.

Currently, the Hawaii Department of Agriculture, through its Agricultural Resource Management Division, operates ten agricultural parks – four on Hawaii Island, four on Oahu, and one each on Kauai and Molokai. In addition, there is one agricultural park on Maui in Kula, but it is managed by the County of Maui. All of the State’s lots are presently under lease. The lessees are engaged in diversified agricultural crops or aquaculture and are small farming enterprises (under 20 acres).
