Meet Bryan Otani

Bryan OtaniA fourth-generation farmer, the wisdom of Maui’s soil in his body and soul, Otani manages all farm operations as well as sales and marketing for 17 acres of upcountry Kula land, deeply aware of the value of a farmer’s work. “People want and need to eat locally grown fresh vegetables,” he says. “That’s enough to make agriculture a career and lifestyle choice.”

Brian supplies green beans, broccoli, red cabbage, and, foremost, famed Kula onions, which have an entire festival dedicated to their name and serve as a fine example of the impact of agriculture on the local economy. “We are not there yet,” Otani says. “I would like to see agriculture become a bigger part of the community as far as developmental plans are concerned.”
