Fresh Vegetables From Farm to Home to Table All In the Same Day

Otsuji Farm has several fresh ideas here. There are the fresh vegetables. That is obvious. They also have fresh ideas. You can buy their vegetables direct either at an off-site location or at their farm.

What makes Otsuji Farm unique is their "box" of farm fresh veggies. That's right a box. For $10 you get a box filled with five or six different vegetables that were just picked that day. In the box you get a variety that can include: lettuce; turnips (daikon); choy sum; bok choy; radish; and green onions.

They also have other vegetables like: red beets; kale; spinach; pak choy; eggplant; parsley; lettuces; cherry tomatoes; and more. Remember that they were all picked that day.

When I heard of this place I wanted to experience this so I went to the farm the following Saturday.

It's 9:00 Saturday in the morning and people have gathered.
The people working there are very friendly and accomodating.
I needed some Italian Parsley. Someone actually went on the farm and picked fresh bunches for me. Such great service.
You are welcome to take a walk on the farm as well. There you can see where your farm fresh veggies came from. I heard that today's vegetables were picked at 5:00 in the morning. Even the roosters are still sleeping.
The green onions look so nice. If you ever get green onions here you can tell the difference. There's an aroma from them that brings you back to your childhood. It's that noticeable.
Even the herbs in the garden look happy.
I tried to grow green onions once and they never even looked as nice and healthy as these seedlings.
Here's what was in the box that day. The radishes were very red and round.

So if you are ever in Hawaii Kai early one Saturday morning, stop by Otsuji Farm and experience farm fresh veggies. They are located right behind Kaiser High School's tennis courts at 459 Pakala Street. Follow the signs. Hours are 8:00am to 11:00am.
You can also purchase vegetables at their farm Friday afternoons from 3:30 to 5:30. On Tuesday evenints they are on Kaiser High School's lawn 3:30pm to 6:30pm.
