Kalen + Sorrel
When we look around us we can't help but smile. Its a lot of hard work and dedication, but we are honored to have the kuleana (responsibility) to malama (take care of) this special place!!
We live halfway between the Kalalea Mountain Range and Anahola Bay, on a parcel of farmland that we are lovingly tending with clean water from a natural aquifer.
Anahola with it’s breezy tradewinds, is the gateway to the North Shore and has quite a unique climate and story. We call it the 'in between' because it's not too rainy or too dry, allowing us to explore growing a diverse array of plants together in one place. From natives to Mediterranean; which is our ancestry!! Which is pretty amazing! And keeps us on our toes (actually our bare feet ;)), always learning. And with lots to share with our visitors!
We are Kalen + Sorrel. Kalen is part-Hawaiian/Hapa-Haole and was born and raised in Kaua'i, his family roots going back to the first people who inhabited this island. He comes from a fisherman family with a history of catering luaus. He’s been cooking & teaching professionally for over 10 years.
Sorrel was raised a farm girl, to hippy folks on their organic farm in San Diego, CA. She went on to study health, nutrition & natural food preparation, and to travel and teach.
We met at the farmers’ market, and are now growing & cooking beautiful food together, here on our Homestead :))
