Local Hawaii Farmers We Love: Hester Farms

Cafe Pesto, Downtown Hilo, Fine Dining

Sokha and her husband, Ellis, have innovated their 30-acre growing space a mile above Pahala (in the southern Ka’u District), into a farm that offers such a diversity – nothing seems impossible. At any given time they may be harvesting 30 to 35 different crops including peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, salad greens and more.

They continue to creatively work their way through a variety of not the best growing conditions: uneven land, rocky soil, weather conditions – to bring to their markets the most flavorful and eye-popping vegetables.

We love including their fresh veggies in as many of our dishes as we can.
