      With a focus on locally grown produce that are grown in the rich volcanic soil of Hawaii, we are excited to create strong partnerships with local farmers, like Milton from Twin Bridge Farms! Potato Production There is also a substantial wholesale market in the Mid-Atlantic based around the increasing demand for locally-produced foodstuffs and specialty-type potatoes. Due to the wide diversity in types and high consumer consumption, potatoes are a good enterprise option for many growers.

Hawaii has a long history of unsuccessful potato production that is practically unknown to the agricultural community. Crop failure due to disease and insect attack, lack of available seed, improper crop and soil management, and overseas competition for the local market have reduced potato production in Hawaii to a backyard by: 5.
