On April 1, 2017, we were fortunate enough to attend the annual Maui County Agricultural Festival at the Maui Tropical Plantation. The Maui County Farm Bureau partnered with the Office of Economic Development, as well as generous sponsors and other allies of the agricultural industry to host this exciting event. From food booths, featuring cuisine designed by our local chefs and made with locally grown products, to the fresh farmer’s market, there was fun to be had by all. For us at Hawaiian Store, attending this event was a wonderful opportunity, as it’s always great to meet face to face with the people who produce many of the Maui products that we love. This year we spent some time talking with the coffee growers and learned something new. Did you know that any good coffee should taste just as good after it’s cooled down as it does when it is freshly brewed? Indeed, that is the case. We truly enjoyed every aspect of this year’s Maui County Agricultural Festival and would highly recommend attending upcoming festivals if you have the opportunity. There is so much to learn, experience, taste and appreciate, and there is no age limit since there are activities and entertainment geared towards a positive family experience. This is just another way to experience “Aloha” in Hawaii. Wishing you all a wonderful rest of the month of April. Mahalo for your continued support.
