Hawaii has rugged landscapes of volcanoes, waterfalls, tropical foliage and beaches of coloured sands. Its beauty is breathtaking but surprisingly more than 40% of Hawaii is productive farmland thanks to its mild, year-round climate and fertile soils. The diversity is impressive. Sugar cane and pineapples are the most valuable crops, however Hawaii also produces many other crops and products, including tropical fruits, flowers, nuts, goats cheese, macadamia nuts, coffee and a range of vegetables. They even have dairies, cattle ranches and paniolo (Hawaiian cowboys), so when you meet the local farmers and ranchers be prepared to be surprised.
