August 8, 2019 – Cushman & Wakefield | Chaney Brooks announced today the firm has advised the sale of Kauai Organic Farms, a 44.63 acre agricultural property situated in Kilauea, Hawaii. One of the most profitable organic farms in Hawaii, Kauai Organic Farms is a grower and wholesaler of high-quality organic turmeric, Hawaiian yellow ginger and galangal. The buyer was Pacific Organics, Inc., a Hawaii Corporation, which acquired the property along with the business for an undisclosed price. The seller was The Green Family.

“Pacific Organics (the buyer) intends to continue the organic farming operation and carry on the legacy of producing top quality organic Hawaiian ginger and turmeric under the Kauai Organic Farms brand,” said Anthony Provenzano.
Provenzano continued, “Hawaii’s tropical climate and fertile soils allow for a wide range of crops to be cultivated across 1.12 million acres of active farmland. Kauai benefits from a 365-days-a-year growing season and the island’s soil and climate make it the best location in Hawaii as well as the United States for growing turmeric and ginger.”
