A Tour of O’ahu’s only Oyster Farm – October 17
Kualoa Ranch Moli’i Fishpond, Windward Oahu, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 a.m.
Kualoa Ranch is hoping to spearhead a local movement of oyster farming and harvesting.Hawaiʻi imports nearly 400,000 oysters per year – and Kualoa wants to change that by growing our food and cultivating everything we can from our land.Growing oysters for consumption has been a four-year-long project for Kualoa Ranch. A lot of that time was spent waiting for the Department of Health to build its shellfish certification lab and train staff on standards.
There is NO COST to attend the tour but you MUST BE A SLOW FOOD MEMBER. This event is limited to 20 people. Please stop by the Kualoa Ranch Visitor’s Center either before or after the event, where you may purchase the bounties of Kualoa, including their oysters, shrimp, fish and beef, as well as have lunch. If you wish to purchase oysters, go to their website and place an order ahead of time.
