If you've eaten poi, chances are it came from taro root harvested here, the largest farm of its kind on Kaua'i. As the main starchy food of the Hawaiian diet, taro is culturally and symbolically significant. Grown in marshy fields called paddies, taro was first brought to the islands approximately 1,500 years ago by Polynesians. This farm is 100 years old, established and maintained by the Haraguchi family. While public access is not permitted, you can take photos from Ohiki Road by Hanalei Bridge.
