KAPOLEI – Summer is just around the corner which means the ‘Ewa Plains are ripe and ready for Aloun Farms Second Annual ‘Ewa Sweet Festival presented by Meadow Gold Hawaii. The weekend-long community event will be held Saturday June 17 and Sunday June 18 from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Attendees can enjoy all-day entertainment, local food and crafts vendors, free hayrides, a petting zoo, pony rides and other keiki activities, as well as ‘Ewa Sweet farmers’ market, access to 10 acres of farmland and free ice cream from event sponsor, Meadow Gold Hawaii.

There will also be ‘ohana growing workshops at the keiki garden where families can receive Aloun Farm seedlings of herbs, peppers and onion and free tips and crop care information on how to transplant them into their home gardens.
“We’re excited to celebrate and share our popular ‘Ewa Sweet produce with our community,” said Alec Sou, Aloun Farms president and general manager. “On hot summer days, there’s nothing more refreshing than our signature ‘Ewa Sweet seedless watermelons or ‘Ewa Sweet corn for picnics and gatherings so come and stock up while they’re in season.”
