Connecting under-utilized farm equipment with farmers who need it.
Aloha Farm Friends,
  • Do you own farm equipment and would like to make extra cash renting it out?
  • Do you need a seeder, bed shaper, or other equipment to prep a field or expand for next season?

O’ahu FarmShare is a group that makes it easy for farmers to share equipment through peer-to-peer rentals. We connect farm equipment owners seeking to rent their underutilized equipment with small farm operators or others that need it. Owning the specialized machinery and equipment you need to operate efficiently is a bottleneck for many operators. Bringing the “sharing” economy to farm equipment is part of the solution to make better use and earn more income with the equipment that’s already available on the island. 

Join now and in a few minutes, you can post equipment for rent! And if you need equipment, come check out what is already available. Inquiries are welcome!
