Opening Ceremony


everend Ryan Newman, rector at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Kapaa, will be conducting the farm fair’s opening blessing. Kauai County Farm Bureau is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year. In June 1968, Katsuto Arashiro, a pineapple and tomato farmer in Wailua Homesteads, Lincoln Takenaka of Wailua Homesteads and Manuel Medeiros of Kalaheo both raised chickens for eggs and meat.

Aloha! I am proud to welcome you to the 2013 Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair, one of the largest community events on the island. We all look forward to this annual event because there’s something for everyone to enjoy at the fair, from keiki to kupuna! This year’s theme Growing Kauai Together truly captures the essence of what is happening in agriculture here on the Garden Isle. And the Farm Fair provides a wonderful showcase for this with the 4-H Auction and Petting Zoo, Fruit & Vegetable Show, Kauai Coffee Celebrity Chef Cook-off for Charity, and so much more. The fair also gives us a chance to recognize the contributions of the individuals who have worked so hard over the years to establish an agricultural community on Kauai, along with the efforts of the younger generation who are poised to lead the agricultural industry into the future. On behalf of the people of the County of Kauai, I extend a big mahalo to the organizers and volunteers of the Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair, who work tirelessly year after year to make this event a success. Aloha Pumehana,

Food at the Fair

he food booths are definitely a highlight for everyone who visits the fair. This year each has made an effort to expand the menu with the addition of healthy choices and locally grown and made items. And of course, you’ll find carnival favorites, too! Food booths are managed by nonprofits, including the Pop Warner chapters from Kapaa, Koloa, Kekaha and Lihue, plus the Kauai High School, Island School and the Haraguchi Rice Mill. The revenue generated is a fundraiser critical to each of these programs in our community and to the Farm Bureau.

Farm Fair Goes Zero Waste This year, the Farm Fair food booths “go green” with the help of Zero Waste Kauai and Kapaa JROTC cadets. Each nonprofit food vendor has made a commitment to use compostable foodware, investing to help support the reduction of waste at the fair. This adds to other green efforts at the fair, such as CFL lighting, oil recycling and the use of HI-5 containers. In line with the county’s commitment to zero waste, new waste stations will be provided to help fairgoers separate waste in the food areas into containers marked compostable, recycling and trash. Zero Waste volunteers and the Kapaa JROTC cadets will be on hand to help implement the new system and answer questions. All compostable food waste generated during the event will be carried to Mark Freeman’s farm. Sunday, August 18, 2013

4-H: The Power of Youth!


ook for the 4-Hers at the fair! You’ll find them wearing the traditional 4-H logo a green four-leaf clover with white “H” on each leaf representing head, heart, hands and health. The 4-H Petting Zoo will be operated during limited hours by 4-H members in the Livestock tent. Bring a child to share the experience of cuddling up to a bunny or petting a tame chicken. Take advantage of a teachable moment to develop an appreciation of animals and agriculture. Cost to enter is $2 a person. All proceeds of the zoo will benefit the Kauai 4-H Federation, a notfor-profit organization that provides educational opportunities for youth. During the year, the 4-H Federation provides opportunities for youth to lead, learn and grow

F through workshops, leadership trainings, conferences and service learning projects. With the help of adults, youth plan and implement these activities while developing valuable life skills. 4-H activities will take place under the Livestock Tent during the four day fair. Come and learn about the many things 4-H has

to offer. There is something for everyone and you’ll discover that it’s much more than raising livestock! Sign up as a 4-H volunteer and experience the rewarding feeling of helping others! For more information on 4-H, come and talk to us at the fair or call the University of Hawaii Cooperative Extension Office at 274-3473.
