Oʻahu RC&D is pleased to be able to offer services that support our local farmers and agricultural entrepreneurs. These services include:
Oʻahu RC&D conservation planners work with farmers and ranchers to recognize and address resource concerns on their properties. Planners help producers choose and implement management practices that will best meet their conservation needs. In some cases, financial assistance is available. If you are interested in developing a conservation plan for your farm, ranch, or forest, call our office at 622-9026 or see our Conservation Planning page for more information.
Oʻahu RC&D provides monitoring services to farmers, ranchers, and nursery owners who have a current conservation plan.
Oʻahu RC&D provides basic business skills trainings to agricultural businesses. Topics include: record keeping, taxes, regulations, food safety, marketing, distributing, exporting, and obtaining loans and other financing.
Oʻahu RC&D serves as a fiscal sponsor to several smaller organizations in Hawaiʻi with goals similar to our own. We contract with these organizations to provide fee-based administrative support as they complete projects and expand their organization.
