Join us on Saturday, April 7 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. for an exclusive tour highlighting a preservation success story!

Bring the family! Suitable for all ages.

SPACE IS LIMITED.

The Farm: Sweet Land Farm, Oahu’s only certified goat dairy, located on 86-acres in Waialua on Oahu. Owned and operated by the Bello family with daughter Emma, a culinary student graduate, the visionary for a goat dairy and making it real with help from Mom (Mary), Dad (Eric) and brother Austin.

The Preservation: Six historic homes from the former Red Hill Navy housing neighborhood had been slated to be demolished but were instead saved and relocated to Sweet Land Farm. The homes are being re-purposed for employee housing and accessory farm uses in a creative preservation success story.

The Tour: Enjoy a farm tour with the Bello family sharing history and farm lore at the milking and cheese making stations, goat barn and teenage goat pen. Learn about the historic Red Hill housing that now resides on the farm—the history of the Red Hill neighborhood, the architecture and historic significance and story of the journey these homes took from a neighborhood of military housing to the farm and plans for their continued use into the future. Tour will include inside access to one of the homes.

The Cheese Tasting: After the tour, enjoy cheese tasting on the patio with sampling of all farm made cheese products (see extras below for description).

The Extras: The Farm Store will be open. Purchase Pohaku Tomme (aged semi-hard French-style); Feta (Greek style brined curd white cheese); spreadable Chevre (five flavors) & Goat Milk Caramel Sauce for friends and family before heading back to town.

Guests are invited to stay to observe goat milking at 5:30 p.m.
