Matt's story

I grew up in northern California and had spent most of my life willingly in a kitchen. I cooked professionally for 11 years in some of the most well known restaurants of Sonoma county . My love for real food has taken me outdoors so that i could be the farmer who bring the product to the chef. I was very involved in the farm to table movement in California and plan to expand that to big island . I was invited to Hawaii 5 years ago and fell in love. I moved my dog here so she could have the best life . I plan on building a certified kitchen on the farm and producing a unique , sought after product that can be exported. The farm my wife and i manage is owned by an amazing couple who live in California and my wife and i work to help them hold onto the farm . We also hope to one day have our sweat equity turned into partial ownership of the farm as we wish to have children in the near future.
