About Our Farm

Gary and Takae

Second Nature Farm Hawaii is a natural farm located in the forest at the foot of the Ko’olau Mountains on the island of Oahu. It was developed in 2020 by Gary and Takae and a community of volunteers who supported them.

The farm produces vegetables and fruits using natural farming methods, which means no chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used, and there is no unnecessary soil tillage. The produce is gentle on the body and retains the natural flavors of the blessings of nature.

Moreover, the farm is surrounded by beautiful nature on all sides, making it a healing space for visitors’ minds and bodies. The fields where wild grasses and healthy vegetables grow in harmony with each other, soaking up the energy of the mountains, and the fruit orchard where the contrast between the leaves of various sizes and shapes, and the sun’s light and shadow is stunning. The farm also welcomes visitors with Hawaii’s unique plants and flowers that thrive near the stream and pond.

Walking through the forest while listening to the murmuring brook, we encounter various birds competing for beautiful voices and a wild boar followed by their offspring passing by without hesitation. We, humans, feel grateful for being alive with other livings on the earth, which is sustained by the natural order.

At Second Nature Farm Hawaii, “Nature is the number one” (Gary). By using sustainable farming methods that follow the regenerative ecosystems, we aim to preserve soil and water resources, protect Hawaii’s beautiful mountains, rivers, and oceans, and revitalize people’s hearts and bodies through healthy food and work.
