The Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair is the largest annual event on Kauai and offers opportunities for community visibility and direct outreach to your target market.
This is a fantastic way to support both agriculture and the Kauai community as a whole with diverse participation from around the island, all ages, cultures and communities and with a unique opportunity to support local businesses and non profit groups who are present at the fair. This is a community wide event with a focus on agriculture, with overall proceeds going to the Kauai County Farm Bureau, and program proceeds going to 4-H and other agricultural commodity and hobbyist groups growing everything from tropical flowers, to orchids, taro and bonsai.

Farm Bureau History
In June 1968, Katsuto Arashiro, a pineapple and tomato farmer in Wailua Homesteads; Lincoln Takenaka of Wailua Homesteads and Manuel Medeiros of Kalaheo both raised chickens for eggs and meat; George Hiyane of Kapaa grew pineapples; Antone Silva of Kalaheo grew Poinsettias; and Joseph Esaki, who was one of the first of Kauai farmers to go to the University of Hawaii at Manoa to earn an Agricultural degree, was known for growing watermelon and truck crops in Kapahi ~ seeing the need for a farmers' organization chartered the Kauai County Farm Bureau.
Today's Farm Bureau is the descendant of the organization created by these men and their farm families.
These pioneers realized collectively purchasing inputs in bulk at lower prices and selling their agricultural products at higher prices jointly provided benefits to their individual businesses, and that their collective efforts would yield greater influence on public policy for diversified agriculture. Our agricultural roots run deep into the history of Kauai County and it is Farm Bureau's hope that agriculture remains a strong economic sector in the years to come.
