Hua Orchards was started in 2019. We grow many varieties of avocados, Tahitian limes, as well as other tropical fruit using organic and regenerative farming practices.
You can currently purchase our avocados and limes online at Farm Link Hawaii. If you live on Oahu and want the best local produce delivered to your door, check them out! They also accept SNAP (Hawaii Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) so EVERYONE can eat local healthy produce!
The word Hua has many definitions in the Hawaiian language but it is most commonly used to refer to eggs or to fruit. Hua can also refer to things which are round in shape, much like eggs and certain fruit like our favorite, Avocados! There is also a Hawaiian moon phase called Hua, which is when the moon is waxing and nearly full. Under the Hua moon, this night was considered sacred to the Hawaiian god of agriculture, and as such was good luck for planting and fishing. As Mahi'ai or temporary stewards of this land we are so lucky to care for, we believe we can pay the deepest respect to this beautiful place by practicing traditional and regenerative farming practices. We do not own the land we farm but we hope to care for it with the deepest respect and grow food so that future generations can also have this opportunity. We love our community and we believe this is our best way to give back.
We have started planting avocados and citrus!
With a lot of help from friends, we planted hundreds of trees the first few days of November 2020.. We are could not be more stoked for this first 6 acre planting! We will continue to collect and propagate our favorite and new varieties in order to reach our goal of 1000 avocados trees planted in the field by March 2023. That said, this would never be a possibility without the support of our amazing friends, family, and community. THANK YOU ALL!
