Videos of Hawaiian Agriculture


Welcome to our collection of videos of Hawaiian agriculture. The preponderance of luncheon-meat and other food-processed abominations in our local culinary galaxy begs comparison with the olden days. There used to be more than 300 varieties of taro, and Hawaiians on average ate some five pounds of poi a day back then. Now it’ll set you back ten bucks for a stingy little bag of the stuff at the supermarket, and there are times when you can’t find it at any price. What’s happened to the Hawaiian diet is a microcosm of what’s happened to the Hawaiian. But the awareness is growing that local-grown is hands-down the best idea. Good food, not Franken-food, is the best cure for what ails us, and the Hawaiians knew what was good, and good for you.
