Kohala Mountain Farm Pumpkin Patch

Kohala Mountain Farm Pumpkin Patch

Our director of marketing, Stacy Hasegawa, has been doing some interesting side-projects for the Big Island community. Recently, she has been working hard on a farm in the Kohala mountains and coordinating a pumpkin patch event for Halloween. Families came out on October 22 and 23, 2011 to pick a pumpkin and enjoy the festivities.

Stacy told us, “I used to work on Oahu for Aloun Farms which used to be the only locally owned pumpkin patch in the state, and I saw how much fun families would have that came and visited the pumpkin patch.” But the event wasn’t just about finding the best pumpkin. It was also an effort to raise funds. Local resident, Lisa Johnson’s two-year-old son, suffers from a brain injury condition. After she approached Stacy they set up the Kokua Stone Mana Ohana Fundraiser. By offering a raffle, cotton candy, face painting, and a costume contests they raised funds to continue Lisa’s toddler’s intensive multi-sensory brain repair therapy.

The pumpkin patch sits high up in the scenic Kohala Mountains. The Kahua Ranch generously donated the use of the parcel of land for growing the pumpkins and having this once a year event. Over the weekend families gathered on blankets with picnics while local musicians played poi music. “What makes me keep doing it is the people,” Stacy said. “The people who appreciate it”

Here at MacArthur and Company | Sotheby’s International Realty we appreciate Stacy’s efforts both in the office and outside working for the community and we are delighted she is a part of our team.
