Hawaiʻi Agricultural Foundation

Hawaiʻi Agricultural Foundation (HAF) is a non-profit organization created to promote agriculture and farming. Created in 2007 (initially as The Hawaiʻi Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture, and renamed The Hawaiʻi Agricultural Foundation in 2010), the mission of HAF is to support and sustain Hawaiʻi’s agricultural industry by addressing the critical needs and services of farmers and the industry in Hawaiʻi, and by better connecting them with the community and vice-versa. This involves educational and outreach programs in the community, as well as direct marketing, technical, educational and in-the-field support for farmers.
