Hawaii Dairy Farms lays out plan

From The Garden Island:

WAIPOULI — A dairy farm could be operating on Kauai next year.

Jim Garmatz, manager for Hawaii Dairy Farms, said their conservation plans have been approved by the Natural Resources Conservation Service. They are waiting approval and permits from the Department of Health.

In a presentation at the Kauai Economic Development Board’s annual membership meeting Tuesday, Ann Hennessey, Ulupono Initiative director of communication, said the building permits are in progress, as are the irrigation systems and pasture development.

Hennessey said Hawaii Dairy Farms is planning a spring groundbreaking with the first of 1,800 head of Kiwi cross cattle arriving in late summer. The South Shore business could be in operation in 2015, she said.
