TURTLE BAY (HawaiiNewsNow) - It’s National Ag Day!

Hawaii farmers and ranchers are celebrating the day by highlighting their achievements in improving food security.

Turtle Bay Resort’s Kuilima Farm on the North Shore is one of only 100 of the state’s 7,300 farms certified under USDA Food Safety Guidelines.

“We are so proud of achieving that Food Safety certification that allows Kuilima Farm to increase food security to the North Shore tourism industry and surrounding community,” said Ramsey Brown, Vice President of Diversified Agriculture.

Guests can pick farm fresh goodies straight from the soil at Kuilima Farm’s first Annual Spring U-Pick Garden Party next weekend.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and it’s free to the public.

There’s also a Spring has Sprung Photo op where guests can wear spring outfits and ham it up with the fun farm backdrops for family photos.
