True Leaf Farms is a family-run farm in Moloa’a, on Kaua’i. The vision started with Jeremy Hillstrom, who was born and raised just down the road in Anahola, Kaua’i. Like many people who’ve spent much time on Kaua’i, he has a strong love and feeling of stewardship towards Kaua’i and the earth. Jeremy is a realtor and business owner who feels that as the island continues to grow, it is important to encourage sustainability and keep the environment in the forefront of our minds. He uses 10% of his personal real estate commissions and business’ net income towards sustainable efforts here on Kaua’i. One of these sustainable efforts is this farm and farm stand.
Jeremy’s wife, Keli Ranke, is the farm stand and delivery manager. A private chef and caterer who specializes in local vegetarian cuisine, she takes pride in providing an abundance of beautiful and delicious fresh produce to the community. Keli and Jeremy are supported in the field by the careful help of farmer Mimi Beeson. She is up with the chickens each morning, harvesting produce for the farm stand with a friendly smile and wave. She is also the farm’s “photographer-in-residence,” capturing amazing shots of life on the farm. Further inspiration and support comes from the younger and elder generations—Keli and Jeremy’s daughter and Jeremy’s mother, who are both so helpful on the farm.
We harvest and share our farm-fresh offerings seven days a week! To see what we are growing now, please visit our farm stand (location details here). Our produce is always rotated and removed from the refrigerators after two days. This is important because vegetables begin to lose nutrient value from the moment of harvest. The sooner you eat them, the higher the nutrients available. You can also find our veggies in Kapa’a—on the shelves at Hoku Foods and on your plate at The Local Kauai.
Our mission is to farm and share with our community top-quality produce (full of all the nutritional benefits of being freshly harvested!) through a convenient farm direct-sale program, while giving the ‘aina (land) and environment first priority with every decision we make every day on our farm.
