At L’ulu as we continue to feature the partnerships that seek to manage our natural resources and environment in a sustainable manner and reshape the local marketplace. Thirteen restaurants will partner with farmers, ranchers, and aquaculturists to feature a locally grown or produced food product in their menu offering.  Visit the chefs as they continue to link agriculture with the restaurant industry and strive to provide diners with products that are fresh, local, and as diverse as our island themselves.
