Growing the FRESHEST and HIGHEST QUALITY Portabella Mushrooms in Hawai‘i

Our Mission
Learning from nature. Mirroring ecosystems by promoting biodiversity, reusing underutilized resources and growing organic produce to better the community.

How does a green recycling company give rise to an USDA certified organic mushroom farm?  The organic material from our recycling operation makes for fine compost, which happens to be perfect for growing mushrooms! Thus Small Kine Farm was born.  Not only are we the only Portabella farm in Hawai‘i, but by using our own compost and a high-tech pasteurization and growing process, we have been able to produce safe, high-quality mushrooms with better taste, texture and a longer shelf life than Mainland competitors…they even LOOK better.
