Hunters, Farmers and Fishermen are special individuals. They sacrifice daily, they place everything on the line, and they know the definition of hard work. Many start before the sun comes up and finish after it sets. They tend to their fields, tend to the forest and tend to their oceans in attempts to ensure good harvest to provide food for the masses.
There are many things changing in America and Hawaii. For us the biggest and most detrimental change that has occurred comes from people who know little of what we do. There is a social movement of individuals and groups that have mastered the craft of Hunting, Farming, and Fishing (feeding people) through Facebook and other sources of unverified literature. Overnight they have formulated opinions on how we should produce food for the masses. Some key words you'll see, that capture the feelings of individuals, such as overfishing, GMO, Pesticides, Inhumane Slaughter, Damaging Reefs, Slave Labor and the list goes on.
These subject matter experts have introduced laws that have made it very difficult and in some cases almost impossible to produce food.
Hence, the formation of the hunting, farming and fishing association. We are a bunch of people that saw a need to organize ourselves in efforts to combat the so called social subject matter expert.
Our game plan is pretty basic! It's called the ACE plan: Advocate, Collaborate, and Educate. We advocate all food producers.
When do we get involved? We get involved when we see problems arising that will jeopardize access, regulations, and food security. Being that we are a 100% volunteer organization, we need everyones help. Please send us a message or become a member.
