Richard Ha


Richard Ha is president of the 600-acre Hamakua Springs Country Farms. Hamakua Springs Country Farms is located in Pepe‘ekeo on the Big Island of Hawaii’s Hamakua coast.

He is interested in the nexus of agriculture and energy, and finding solutions to the Big Island’s rising energy costs in a way that helps the “rubbah slippah folks” and everyone else.

It won’t be the biggest and the strongest who do best in these challenging times of rising prices, Richard says, but those who adapt to change. There are solutions that mean our children and grandchildren will not only be able to afford to stay in Hawai’i nei, but thrive. He blogs about how we can work together to make those changes happen.
