    Thanks for the insight and suggestion. I also think that some of those farmers focused too heavily on large mono crops and some needed to rely on government farm subsidies to keep them viable as they were susceptible to global market fluctuations. What I envision are smaller more mixed farms supplying farm to table food for locals rather than the factory farming concept currently the norm in the American farming community. This is already currently happening successfully here in Sonoma County and many other places, not only here in the States but around the world. We can learn from these examples and by sharing best practices can help make this a viable option.
    Ummm......I would guess they were not getting govt subsidies for the crop in question,

      Yeah, no subsidies for cannabis. A lot of these places I'm referring to have mixed farms/animals, off the grid solar, grey water systems, hydro, that sort of thing. Just north of you, probably a lot more rustic than Sonoma.

          Molokai is amazing and pretty primitive in a lot of ways. I've been three times and we were planning to go back this January before the new house stuff started. You can in fact gather pineapple, coconut and bananas from around the island and the local fisherman do sell right off the boat when they come in. I like to tell people there is no beach sharing on Molokai. If you walk down to a beach and someone is there you go to the next cove so you have you're own space.
