GROVE FARM is one of the leading players in an islandwide movement toward sustainability and locavorism with a history as rich as the soil that supports its diverse crops. At 40,000 acres, it has shifted from sugar chief to leading Kaua‘i’s community and economic development — and being a steward of its ‘āina (land).
