Hawaii Farmers Union recognized by National Farmer's Union
HONOLULU

The Hawaii Farmers Union, which represents small family farmers in the islands, has been recognized as a subdivision of the National Farmers Union.

The national union said Wednesday its board recently voted to approve the move.

National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson says his organization is pleased with the Hawaii group's hard work and looks forward to working with them to help it grow.

The organization says the Hawaii Farmers Union will continue to advocate for policies that benefit family farmers and ensure the people of Hawaii have more access to locally grown and organic produce.

The Hawaii Farmers Union has more than 300 members. Many also belong to the Hawaii Farm Bureau, the Hawaii Aquaculture and Aquaponics Association and other local, farm associations.

Once we get to 1250 members we will have the national convention here in Hawaii Nei! What impressed National Farmers Union was what we did the week we had our strategic planning session on Kauai back in Sept. Buying all of our food from local farmers while setting up shop in a beach front house on Hanalei Bay. We held a farmer reception to have a meet and greet with 10 local farmer producers. This was a special week which got the attention and support of the National organization. They realized we are the real deal, being producers that understand the needs of other small farming operations and are able to represent them accordingly.
