Our Story

Jamie and Mitch met in Hana in early 2018 and experienced a deep connection rooted in a shared love of fermentation, farm life, and raising a family in the most beautiful place on Earth. 

In the Fall of 2018 Jamie and Mitch started Maka'alae Farms from their farm house in Hana. Maka'alae Farms was named after "Maka'alae" located just outside of Hana between Hamoa beach and Venus Pools.

They started brewing authentic kombucha at their house to preserve and share the fruits growing on their farm. They handcrafted their kombucha in small batches deciding early on to never compromise quality. To this day, they continue to put product quality before profits, and that means you're getting the very best kombucha available for sale.

Maka'alae Farms is proud to be a family owned & operated farm dedicated to bringing you authentic kombucha brewed with the very best organically grown ingredients in Hawai'i. Continuous innovation driven by love and appreciation for the Āina is at the heart of Maka’alae Farms.
