Crazy for Kimchi
September 21, 2018
We first met Monica Bogar at a food show in Honolulu and fell in love with her kimchi and her passion for healthy, homegrown foods. She makes Napili Flo Farm Kimchi in small batches on Maui from locally sourced ingredients and Himalayan pink salt using traditional fermentation methods. One taste and we knew we wanted to share her story.
Using Cattle To Mitigate Global Warming

August 7, 2018

Fresh BOX: Local Meals at Your Doorstep
July 20, 2018
With the high shipping costs from the mainland, we almost missed out on the meal kit trend here in Hawaii. That was until fresh BOX came along. The Oahu-based company offers a weekly box filled with ingredients and instructions to make three healthy meals for two. The ingredients are 90% locally sourced, and Kunoa is happy to be one of those local suppliers. We love to see the creative recipes they come up with for our meat. (Flat iron steak over soba noodles with local veggies and wasabi soy dressing, anyone?) Here’s more about how FreshBOX got started.
It Starts With the Soil
July 11, 2018
Back in April, Flux magazine featured Kunoa in its food issue. If you picked up the print edition, you may have missed the beautiful video they put together about our company. They gave our co-founders plenty of space to talk about Kunoa’s mission of producing healthy food for the Hawaii community. It’s a movement that must grow, literally, from the ground up — starting with healthy soil.
