The island’s largest agricultural showcase is returning in 2018 with a new twist at a different location in Waimea, Hawai‘i Island!

Taste of the Hawaiian Range will be Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018 at Mana Christian ‘Ohana (Old Kahilu Town Hall) and the adjacent YMCA Minuke Ole Park in Waimea.

Keiki can enjoy agricultural-themed activities and games; pony rides will be available for a nominal fee. Hawai‘i Island 4-H youth will offer a display of farm animals and a booth on how youngsters can join the project-based organization 4-H is marking 100 years in Hawai‘i during 2018.

Open to the public and geared to farmers, ranchers and culinarians, the free presentations will include Q&As. Talks will cover a wide range of topics: the Food Safety Modernization Act, invasive species, federal worker protection standards on proper pesticide use and safety, Hawai‘i tea production, agriculture technology with Smart Yields, best-use practices for beef carcass utilization and the cutting-edge GMO research and technology involving CRISPR-Cas9.
