How To Testify In Support of FAM

Remote testifying at the Maui County has become a reality after 25+ years. An alternative to public testimony has been triggered by concerns surrounding the corona virus. Maui residents can provide remote testimony for the April 9th Economic Development and Budget Committee meeting through an online program called, BlueJeans. The new option to testify via […]

Beyond Repair

Reclamation on the farm and ranch is mainstay. We replace handles of shovels and weed tools, we glue a cracked bucket from time to time, we upcycle where we can. There are times though, that retiring a tool is inevitable. A broken ladder, because its purely unsafe, is taken to metals recycling; a rusty bent […]

Power To The People

Some people might not believe they have power. It may sound like a lofty thing to say. Funny how when kids play super heros, you can often hear “I have the Power!”, “Give me some Power!” or the defeated, “They stole my Power?!” Truth be told, we all have mana or power and truth be […]

Mauna Kea Protectors Reaffirm Stance to Kapu Aloha

Peaceful protest at Mauna Kea on moku o Keawe (Hawai‘i island) over the last two weeks has brought alaka‘i (lead) protectors to organize thousands of Mauna Kea kia‘i (protectors) at the base of the sacred mountain. A thirty meter telescope has been of contentious debate since a groundbreaking ceremony was stopped in 2014. Kia‘i chained […]

There’s No Water Under The Bridge

There has been 150 years of water theft from East Maui by conglomerate sugar barons. Their gross entitled attitudes have overflowed into abuse of power in cooperation with status quo, bought-off politicians. The reprehensible damage done to this remote East Maui area is not all visible. The fallow fields of kalo that once were, are […]

Raw Milk Movement Opportunity for Hawai‘i

UPDATE:  Unfortunately, although HB536 was scheduled for a hearing on Wed 1/31, the Committees ran out of time from other agendas that day and were therefore unable to receive testimony on this bill. Due to our advance notice requirements, in order to still consider this bill we were therefore required to re-schedule this bill and […]

Food Sovereignty and Food Security in Hawai‘i: Food For Thought

In the preface of David Gumpert’s book, “The Raw Milk Revolution: behind America’s emerging battle over food rights”, Joel Salatin states: In the 1970’s I sold our homemade yogurt, butter, buttermilk and cottage cheese at the Curb Market (precursor to today’s Farmer’s Market) on Saturday mornings. In those days, the Virginia Dept. Of Agriculture had […]

Na Wahine Koa / Strong Women

Hawai‘i Public Radio provides continual community reach that enriches every corner of Hawai‘i. We are grateful for this story of Hawai‘i Women Warriors here and the many others since 1981 that have helped keep Hawai‘i residents and appreciators informed and thus empowered.       History of Hawaii Public Radio Hawaii Wahine Leadership   Featured […]

Commemorative Edition

Farmers Voice Hawai‘i (FVH) is dedicated to those who farm, ranch and fish in the islands Hawai‘i. It was inspired by the need for farm story-telling in mainstream news media. The name “Farmers Voice Hawai‘i” was selected after research uncovered an historic national farming newspaper, Farmers Voice, that published through 1913. Hawai‘i has critically important […]
