Secret Harvest Hawaii is a collaborative project that was born out of a deep love and respect for the power of plant-based medicine. We aim to honor the farmers, the plants, and the recipients of these gifts from the ʻāina.

Ingredients: turmeric*, ginger*, coconut, coconut nectar, rice tocos, cinnamon*, cardamom*, black & white peppercorn, vanilla, sea salt

Most turmeric (and all “fresh” food in the grocery store) is weeks or months old by the time it’s purchased. After harvesting before they reach maturity, and therefore their nutritional peak, the plants must be processed, washed, weighed, then sent on a boat, flown, or trucked to a distribution center, then transported all over the North American continent.

Since food grown outside the United States is generally cheaper, the likelihood that your food was mass produced in Mexico or Central/South America, sprayed with insecticides, pesticides, and herbicides (yes, even organic!) and treated with a petroleum based preservative, before it makes the long journey to you, has risen exponentially over the past 2 decades. Most fruits and vegetables are grown in depleted soil, (a result of mono-cropping and overfarming) which decreases their mineral and micronutrient content.

Turmeric and ginger, in particular, are likely to be sprayed with a waxy substance that helps it to last longer while it sits on a cargo ship. Most turmeric found in mainland grocery stores comes from tropical regions without much infrastructure, so, by the time it arrives in he US (usually to California) on a boat, it’s already a few weeks to a month old. If you live outside the West Coast, your turmeric and ginger will then travel from distribution center to distribution center before ending up in your store. This drives up the price, while decreasing the quality. Turmeric and ginger are both potent, effective medicines when they’re fresh and properly grown in rich soil. Hawaii has a perfect climate for growing these roots, and mineral rich soil, due to the volcanic activity in this island chain. Secret Harvest Hawaii takes great care to harvest directly from small permaculture farms, and ship immediately to you, within a few days of removal from the earth.
