Don and Diana Mahi were both born and raised on Oahu. They married in 1971 and in 1975 they moved to Kauai and started their family. In 1987 they were able to move to Anahola Hawaiian Homestead Farm lots to make a living off of the land. Life was not easy back then. The land was overgrown with wild trees and scrubs. Water needed to be brought in. A windmill installed to generate electricity.
They started by growing turf grass for golf courses and home owners. It was an excellent business until Hurricane Iniki devastated the island. Home owners now had to repair roofs and damages and this affected their turf business.
To diversify they planted Neem Trees on the farm. Moving away from growing Turf Grass they began to grow other things to make farm fresh products.
