Unique Ingredients

Manoomin, called wild rice outside the Ojibwe culture, has played a central role in tribal life. It has spiritual attributes, and its discovery is recorded in legends. Traditional methods used by the Ojibwe people to harvest manoomin are still used today.

Our cooking is infused with local spices and flavor, such as with turmeric. A humble little root, 'olena was probably one of the two dozen or so plants brought to Hawai`i by early Polynesian settlers in their voyaging canoes.

Eating Well

Taro is an important food source for the Hawaiians, also considered as their sacred elder brother. It is a completely hypoallergenic, versatile, mineralized, satiating vibrant tuber with unique and starchy richness which we use to make into everything from pie, “burgers,” fries and also served as a smooth, purple-ish, creamy staple dish called “poi.”

Let us awaken your appetite!


Fresh from the farm, mountain and sea, we invite you to join us for an experience you are sure to savor.

Speciality Items

Now available in store, the only USDA Hawaii venison from Molokai.

Venison that is Clean and Delicious!

Venison is good for you. We harvest it to control the population that has exploded on Molokai. Rather than just shooting and wasting the edible good healthy food we have worked hard to make it available to market. From lobbying in Washington and setting up procedures we have been able to be USDA Certified and the processing plant is also HACCP Certified.
