Since then, Aloun Farms has been actively farming approximately 85% of this property, growing delicious produce including Ewa Sweet Onion, Sweet Corn, Avocado, Pumpkins, Broccoli, Sweet Melons, Herbs, and Asian Vegetables.
The life blood of agriculture is the availability of water. In addition to the annual rainfall, Clean Water is available to all units from a third party provider, Alaka'i Ranch & Farms, LLC, at competitive rates. Unlike irrigation water drawn from the Waialua Ditch, which is classified as "R-1" and "R-2", and supplies water for other properties in central Oahu, Clean Water comes from the nearby Tanada Reservoir. Experienced farmers know that vegetables and some ground fruits cannot come into direct contact with "R-1" and "R-2" water and that "R-1" and "R-2" water cannot support many of the high value vegetable and fruit crops that can be grown here.
This fee simple agricultural community will be managed by the unit owners. The rules of the condominium association will govern the farming practices to ensure that unit owners can farm without conflict with other owners. Each unit owner will have access to their unit via internal roads or Kamehameha Highway, Paalaa Uka Pupukea Road and Plantation Road. Four units will be owned by Alaka'i Ranch & Farms, LLC, the company operating the water supply company. Processing facilities for produce and a warehouse operated by a third party vendor is also planned for location on the Alaka'i units and will be available to unit owners at competitive rates.
