Farmer: Shame on Kawailoa Development LLP
Dear Editor, March 24, 2017
I am a fourth generation farmer. I know the hard work that Ulupono Initiative is doing to bring back the dairy industry. Go to www.uluponoinitiative.com and see their only agenda is to help and support the people of Hawaii in all areas of sustainability.
I have watched as they are beaten down by the so called "corporate interest" companies such as the Grand Hyatt and other developers, saying the run off waste will contaminate water etc., which is total B.S. First of all, Hyatt and all other resorts pump waste water onto their golf courses nightly (I'm sure you did not know this.) A study done also found waste pumping into their surrounding waters. So an environmental review should also be done on the Grand Hyatt to be fair.
All milk is imported, local milk tainted, full of hormones, and cancer causing chemicals. Do you want to continue to spend upwards of $5-$8 a gallon of this, or fresh & nutritious grass fed milk, that will be cheaper? The grass fed dairy, (2 miles away from nearest anything) no smell, free range, & cows come into a Ferris wheel to be milked once a day, and turned out to pasture. They are happy & treated humanely. No hormones, etc. No cages or run off.
So why pick on the guys trying to bring back a sustainable culture to Kauai? Greed, more development of our precious land, versus our right for a healthy alternative. Shame on Kawailoa Development LLP.
