Grow Farmers, Grow Food, Grow Community.

the maui farmer network is working to support small and beginning family farmers in maui nui.

The Maui Farmer Network offers Farmer Navigational Coaching to small and beginning regenerative farmers.

Founded in 2021, MFN’s goals is to support small and beginning farmers working to earn and living and increase fresh local food availability. Initial programming (in 2021) focused on farmer networking and education through one-on-one online coaching and webinars. In 2022, MFN was funded to do work in Farmer Coaching by a grant from the County of Maui, Office of Economic Development.

In 2023, with ongoing support from the County, a grant from Atherton Family Foundation supported the initial steps to create a Tool Library for Small and Beginning Regenerative Farmers on Maui. As we enter into 2024, MFN is coaching and supporting about 45 farmers on a regular basis. Proudly entering its 3rd year of programming, MFN is supported by funding from the County of Maui’s NEWLY formed Department of Agriculture, and the Atherton Family Foundation.

Engaging in integrative education, inclusive hands-on farm learning days, and connection to others in our community remains the core of our purpose and goals. We envision a Maui which is food secure through a strongly woven network of family farm agricultural producers. We provide Farm Support Services, Farmer Navigational Coaching, a Shared Tool Library, and regular online Educational Sessions on a variety of topics.

THE MAUI FARMER NETWORK VISION: To provide coaching, support, and resources for Mauiʻs regenerative farmers, engage in agricultural community collaboration, and build an aware and active network of small scale REGEN agricultural producers.
