Māpele Fields

Ben Field was born and raised on his family farm in Kahalu‘u on the east side of O‘ahu where he grew up helping in the nursery.

It was only after moving to Honolulu to pursue a degree in botany at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa that Ben realized how much his farm life in Kahalu‘u meant to him. His grandparents started farming their nearly 7-acre farm in Kahalu‘u over half a century ago. After two generations before him, Ben has stepped up to work the family land as Māpele Fields. Kahalu‘u, cradled by the Ko‘olau Mountains along Kāne‘ohe Bay, is a green leeward gem but offers a challenging growing condition with long periods of wet and thick soil. Ben, with his wife Laura, grows plants suited for the soil like bananas, taro, and long-term trees without the use of any pesticides or chemical spray.

Māpele Fields’ main crop is cacao which is typically harvested every year between October-March. In between the cacao trees are companion plants like bananas and turmeric (which are quicker growing than cacao and can be harvested before the cacao trees mature). Additionally, the Field family also grows taro, breadfruit, ginger, ‘awa, chocolate sapote, grapefruit, and other specialty fruits.
