This is one of the profiles in an ongoing series covering next generation
agriculture. We are seeing an increased trend for indoor farming across the United
States and around the world. This is a positive trend given that local farming reduces
adverse CO2 emissions from moving food long distances. If you would like us to review

Company Profile: O'ahu Fresh
Here is an example of a network of local farms in Hawaii delivering food that is locally grown.
Here is some of the “About Us” content: Oahu Fresh is made up of a network of local farms. We connect our members, including families, restaurants, stores, hotels, and schools, to locally grown products. We deliver a weekly bag of farm fresh produce directly to homes, offices or centralized pickup locations in Honolulu, Kailua, and Leeward Community College just to name a few. In addition to providing farm to home and office delivery, we also provide delivery support for farms by picking up farm fresh products and delivering them to restaurants, grocery stores and hotels throughout Oahu. We also provide business development support, project management assistance, and grant writing services to farms. So, not only are we expanding the market for local farms, we’re providing the business and logistical support to help them succeed and grow.
