History of MFA:
In 1985-1986 Dept. of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) awarded 126/177 lots in Maku`u Hawaiian home lands.
127 (5 acre) lots
50 (2 acre) lots
Since then, MFA has had 6 presidents:
1985- Ben Noe`au
1992- Judy Woods
1993- Ron Kaipo
1994- Emily Nae`ole
1995- Mahealani henry
1997- Paula Kekahuna
Under the presidency of Paula Kekahuna, MFA became a Non-Profit organization 501 (c) (3) in 1997. In that same year MFA addressed the Hawaiian Home commissioners with a proposal for a community center/ farmers market. In 2000 we partnered with an architect to work on the community center (click here to find out more).
Currently we are awaiting the approval of building permits before we can move forward.
Maku`u Farmers Association (MFA) is governed by a group of dynamic, Native Hawaiians who strive to put the needs of the community and its association first. Officers and directors volunteer their time, working to oversee the policy, direction and activities of MFA.
