Maili Moa Farm, owner Mark Takaki from Waianae converted from a conventional cage operation to a cage free operation resulting in happier, healthier chickens that are veggie fed, free range. The eggs are nutrient rich with harder shells proving a fresher egg in comparison to the mainland eggs. In the 1980’s, 21 commercial egg farms in the islands supplied 85% of our eggs. Now, we’re down to only four, and rely heavily on mainland-import eggs. The reason for the decrease in local eggs is Hawaii doesn’t have a feed mill. The high cost of feed and shipping made it cost prohibiting for the local farmers. The state had been providing a feed subsidy of up to 50% to help support local farmers, but that was cut in 2010. Despite the challenges, Mark believes in the promise of local eggs. “We need to learn how to be more self-sufficient. I want my children to know where their food is coming from, and to get the freshest and best quality.”
