Real Farm at Waikii Ranch in Waimea will host a farm-to-table benefit for Kahilu Theatre and PA‘I Foundation on June 1, featuring fresh meats, dairy products and produce from the farm just footsteps away from the table.

Honolulu chef Mark Noguchi, formerly of Kona Village, will be preparing the afternoon meal at Real Farm, home of Kahilu Theatre director Tim Bostock and organic farmer Melanie Holt and family. Holt will oversee provisions for the meal.

Farm-raised lamb, turkey and pork are on the menu, and freshly harvested vegetables include artichokes, asparagus, fennel, tomatoes, fava beans, mange-tout peas, cabbages, brussel sprouts, kale, sweet potato, carrot, lettuce, celery, Swiss chard, cucumber and eggplant.

Daughter Jasmine “Jazzy” Bostock will display cheeses made from fresh milk provided by Buttercup, the Jersey cow.

Guests will be seated on the lawn under a tent with views of Mauna Kea and the Kohala Coast and entertainment by Komakakino and Hamajang.


VIP tickets include special seating, champagne and chef’s selected pupu menu, a meet-and-greet with Chef “Gooch,” personal farm tour with the hosts and reception with Robert Cazimero at the piano.


The event benefits Kahilu Theatre, Waimea town’s premier performing arts venue, and PA‘I Foundation, dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation of Hawaiian cultural traditions.

The event begins at 2 p.m. Tickets are $150 per person, $250 for VIP Early Admission. Go to:
