GENERATIONS

Kahuku Farms is a result of two farming families spanning back three generations in Hawaii. Descendents of the Matsuda/Fukuyama families migrated to Hawaii from Japan to work in the sugar plantations back in the 1900’s. Shinichi and Torie Matsuda started farming bell peppers, papayas, watermelon and bananas in Kahuku back in the 1940’s and were later joined by their son Melvin in the the 1960's. During a similar time Masatsugu and Nora Fukuyama, also of Kahuku, were farming watermelon, eggplant, papaya and cucumbers and were later joined by their son Clyde in 1965. Clyde and Melvin became long time friends and did several farming ventures together, one of which took them to Australia where they both worked for a year growing watermelons. With similar philosophies and goals, they both decided to merge the Matsuda and Fukuyama Farms in 1986 creating Kahuku Brand. Kahuku Brand is a company dealing primarily with growing and distributing Hawaii wholesale fruits and vegetables.

With the love of agriculture deeply rooted with both Mel and Clyde, they felt compelled to create a way to diversify and share the wonders and bounty of farming with friends and family, to educate, share and offer hands-on experiences that would enhance the quality of life and result in a deeper appreciation of agriculture as their purpose.

Thus, Kahuku Farms was created. A place intended for learning, enjoyment, and experience of diversified agriculture at its finest. In 2005, the daughter of Mel and Momi Matsuda, Kylie Matsuda agreed to champion the task of running the operations for Kahuku Farms. I feel honored and grateful to perpetuate our family’s future in farming, says Kylie. To share our generations of knowledge and history with others, in this amazing place that I’ve known as home is a dream I’m passionate to live. Kylie is a graduate of Kahuku High School and the Travel Industry Management School at the University of Hawaii.

  • I LOVE THIS PLACE!! I had been to Oahu 4 times and just this last week was the first time visiting. I couldn't stop thinking to myself I cannot believe I hadn't visited this place before. The food was amazing but the service was even better!! I got the pizza, garlic bread, banana bread with ice cream and papaya with ice cream. I would say the garlic bread is the best I've ever had, and the banana bread with ice cream was so amazing! The papaya was ripe and delicious. Really kind and friendly staff here. This is also family owned so I absolutely loved supporting them. The atmosphere is so laid back and nice, you can walk around the farm and look at what they're growing. They also have a big central field with a volleyball net (FYI you do have to bring your own if you want to play) Maybe a suggestion for the owners would be to just have a few balls on hand people can either use for free or rent by the hour. I had asked if they did have them and they said you have to bring your own. I get that - but it would have been SO nice if you guys had them on hand - and would have definitely rented it for like an hour if it was a few dollars.
  • We stopped by here and I’m glad we did. We ordered a pineapple papaya smoothie which was very refreshing. It was also a great place to walk around and look through all the plantation. Definitely worth the stop.
