New Maku'u Backyard Growers Co-op in Puna
Whether you have a few loaded trees in your yard or a full fledged farm, we can help you get your produce to market and make some money. We are currently accepting growers in the area around Maku'u market into this newly formed co-op. Click here to see our new website.
The idea is simple - you harvest your trees and we pick up that harvest the evening before market. You set your price, we keep 25% of sales, remaining costs and profits are split between members according to what sells each day. You no longer have to feel bad about fruit rotting on the ground - we'll make it easy to get more local produce to local markets, to build local economy and increase our island's food security. We can also talk about other homemade products like jams, pesto, and other treats. We are looking for pesticide free growers only and look forward to hearing from you! Mary & Sean Jennings
