Located at 1900' elevation on the slopes of Haleakala Kupa'a farm grows a wide range of organic vegetables, fruits and award winning coffee on 4 acres.
In Hawaiian, Kupa'a means "to make firm, or solid". The name was chosen to reflect the solid, life-giving practices that are used to grow food.
Kupa'a farms is committed and passionate about growing, providing and enjoying delicious organic produce that's abundant in nutrition and flavor.
Soil is the heart of all agricultural operations. We at Kupa'a farm do our best to keep our soil alive and healthy and work hard to limit the amount of erosion. We accomplish this through the use of compost, compost tea, cover crops, perennial vegetative barriers and by avoiding bare soil fallow.
