Kaneohe Business Group – Jan 2021 Monthly Meeting – Kualoa Ranch
Alan Shepard has been working with Kualoa Ranch for 7 years. He is the Education Tours Manager and head Team Building Facilitator. He lives in Kailua with his wife and two children.
His presentation to the membership this past Wednesday entailed a lot of what is going on now with the Ranch’s operations and new reality of being an island-based “small business” during the pandemic’s “new normal” in oahu and the mainland. He talked about the services they are still providing and the health of the business as a whole. Kualoa Ranch is Still doing weddings on small scale (less than 50 ppl).
Their Farmers market still open featuring products grown/harvested on prop (Wed-Sun 10a-5p). Eggs, beef, goat, kalo, ulu, shrimp, oysters, etc … they have just started to host other local (Oahu) produce vendors, and now sell their agricultural products in stores and restaurants on Oahu.
The Ranch can host family gatherings in a more “small group experience” and corporate team buildings ($45/person) exercises with reservations available now: email@example.com
The ownership pride themselves on their community partnerships that they have built over the many years and they were proud to announce the newest venture: an aquaculture internship. The administration is now looking for young individuals for placement. So please contact Alan for more info.
About Koaloa Ranch
With not one, but two listings on the US Department of the Interior’s National Register of Historic Places since the 1970’s, Kualoa Ranch Private Nature Reserve is owned and managed by the eighth generation descendants of Dr. Gerritt P. Judd. Kualoa’s mission is to enrich people’s lives by preserving Kualoa’s sacred lands and celebrating its history. Established in 1850, Kualoa’s company vision is to be a role model as stewards of these amazing 4000 acres named Kualoa, Hakipu’u and Ka’a’awa.
Our goal is to protect and enhance the natural beauty of these lands while developing sustainable recreational, agricultural and aquacultural enterprises that are compatible with the environment. All tours and commercial activities enable Kualoa to keep the lands undeveloped so that future generations will be able to enjoy them as well. We truly care about and strive to educate all visitors … kama’aina, military and malihini … about traditional Hawaiian values, reverence for our natural environment, respect for the host Hawaiian culture and most importantly, the sacred history of Kualoa.
