About ONO Organic Farms
Four generations of the Boerner family have been organic farmers in this lush jungle environment.
Charles "Chuck" Boerner says, "The key to our wealth is our health. We have been growing and eating organic for over 60 years. I have been farming here since I was a kid."
ONO Organic Farms operates a wonderful open-air market offering fresh organic tropical fruits, fresh roasted organic coffee beans and fresh roasted organic cacao (chocolate) in the in the nearby town of Hana from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. seven days a week.
In addition to growing thousands of tropical fruit trees, Chuck and Lilly Boerner have raised five children on their organic family farm and three grandchildren are now being raised there, as well. Son, Pueo, serves as Farm Manager. His wife, Ae, handles customer orders. Daughter Autumn directs the Fruit Tasting & Tour. Her husband, Michael, serves as Sales Manager.
"Surf Life for Women" ran a feature article on the Boerner family that says, "Their house was built by the family. The electricity is solar-powered, the water comes from a well, and rubbish is broken down into trash, burnables, recyclables, and compost. The farm is entirely organic... As cheesy as it may sound, being on the farm really felt like a union with nature."
One of the largest tropical fruit farms in the state of Hawaii, ONO Organic Farms grows and sells a wide variety of exotic fruits, cacao (chocolate), and Arabica estate coffee.
All of the produce is hand-picked for perfect ripeness and premium quality to produce the best and most delicious ("ono" in the Hawaiian language) produce for both retail and wholesale customers.
The Boerner family and ONO Organic Farms is frequently featured in newspaper and magazine articles, popular web sites, and television programs, including appearances on the Travel Channel and the Food Channel.
