Connecting Consumers To The Land and Sea ~ Jessica Rohr
Forage Hawai’i was started by a group of friends with one goal: to make a hunter/gatherer diet more available to our island community. We had been blessed with opportunities to hunt, dive, farm, and forage for many of our meals and we wanted to share our bounty.
Starting with a food truck and a couple farmer’s markets, we were able to showcase our fresh local troll-caught fish and Maui’s delicious wild venison, along with produce from local farms.
With clean, healthy, local meats gaining popularity, Forage has transitioned to distribution of raw meats and day-boat fish in order to make local protein more available. As our efforts continue we strive to bring more sustainable food to the market and educate consumers on the many benefits of eating local.
