Ulupono Initiative Brings Grass-Fed Dairy to Kauai with the Formation of Hawaii Dairy Farms

As part of its mission to increase local food production, Ulupono Initiative is investing $17.5 million to form Hawaii Dairy Farms, a grass-fed dairy that will be located on Kauai. Based on the New Zealand pastoral dairy model that uses grass as the primary feed source, this dairy will bring together suppliers with best-in-class capabilities to create an operation that will infuse more local, fresh milk into Hawaii’s dairy supply.  The building permit applications have been filed and construction is anticipated to start in 2014.
