We are always talking about eating fresh and local as much as possible, to truly enjoy the bounty that the Hawaiian islands have to offer. This Saturday, May 23, Edible Hawaiian Islands magazine is promoting a statewide “farm day” to encourage the public to get out and celebrate the family farmers and producers, in honor of their dedication to providing fresh, seasonal foods.

To make it easy, the magazine has produced their second annual farm guide, online and in the latest issue. It includes farmers, ranchers, food producers and supporters, conveniently divided by island so you can visit those around you. As you visit the farm or market, be sure to post on social media using the hashtag #EHIFarmDay15.
