Land Features

Zoned Ag and sitting on 2.5-acres of flat, usable land, this property offers a myriad amount of ways to be utilized. Many people ask what can you do with Ag land; depending on if you live in a house that’s part of a homeowners’ association, you’ll be subject to the rules in the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&Rs). Please check your current or prospective CC&Rs for possible utilization first.

Here are a few options to consider when purchasing a home on Ag land.

Plant a Garden – Go back to your roots and build your own organic vegetable garden.

  • You can start small with herbs, flowers, and greens. Eventually, work your way up to creating rows of beets, carrots, onions, ginger, turmeric, and so much more! Be sure to water every day or install irrigation to let your plants grow strong and healthy. A major plus of growing your own garden is there is no right or wrong way to do it as the grow season is essentially all year long!
  • If you grow enough to share, you can sell at the local Farmer’s Markets (nearest one is in Kilauea at the Na Aina Hou), and/or build a cute farm stand on the road!

Animal Husbandry – Depending on your interests, you could pasture the land for horses, goats, or lambs to help keep the grass mowed all the while enjoying the animals’ company!

  • There are many horse trails around the island to keep your steeds exercised.
  • Build a chicken coop and select some nice egg-laying hens to start your small collection. As egg prices increase ($8 a carton these days), a chicken coop looks more and more enticing!
  • Maybe you’re interested in having goats for their milk? Located in Kilauea is the Kauai Kunana Diary Farm, where you can purchase kids or adult goats — we bought two kids from them and they’re wonderful!

Lease the Land – If farming/gardening isn’t an option, consider leasing the land to local farmers.

  • Along with tax savings, the land will be utilized at its fullest potential as its primary intention. Local farmers could lease the land for cultivation of crops, horse pasturing, or many other ideas at determined amount.
  • Talk with local farmers at the various markets around the island for leads, or
  • Insider tip: Talk to the Kilauea Farms neighbor, Kauai Organic Farms, and see if they’re interested in leasing the land!

Build a Farm Dwelling – A farm dwelling is a single-family dwelling located on and used in connection with a farm where agricultural activity provides income to the family occupying the dwelling.

  • Landowners are allowed to develop farm dwellings for their immediate family members and their employees.
  • Plans for dwellings/houses must be supported by agricultural activities plans approved by the Hawai‘i Department of Agriculture. Plans are submitted to county planning and permitting departments who would route plans for review to the Department of Agriculture.

Uses include, but are not limited to, cultivating of trees; raising, harvesting, and selling crops; feeding, breeding, managing, and selling of livestock, poultry, or honey bees, or any products thereof
