Eighth Annual - October 6—28, 2018 - Tickets on sale now!
Crops & Hops will feature locally grown emerging crops, alongside 20 craft beers from around the world. Emerging crops are known as the next breakthrough crops that are close to being successfully grown in our islands. Last year, HFWF hosted the first Emerging Crop cook-off with three of its master chefs preparing Kohala Mountain Sunfish (aka tilapia). This year, HFWF will feature the traditional Hawaiian breadfruit, ulu, for the cook-off. Come watch our chef finalists duke it out for the title of Emerging Crop King Chef. At this event, you’ll not only be able to taste three preparations of ulu, but also five other dishes made with other emerging crops created by our chefs that will be paired with IPAs and craft brews by Anheuser-Busch.
