Default I'm going to The Big Island!

So, I have finally been able to finagle a business trip to Hawaii in February 2019. My wife and I put together and audit Food Safety programs for watermelon growers in the Eastern US, it accounts for about half our income. National Watermelon Association is having their meeting this year in Waikaloa Village. So, we are going primarily to get some face time with our customers and when else are we going to be able to write off a trip to Hawaii as a business expense. These meetings are usually in like New Orleans or Orlando. We have scheduled in some time to explore and I want to see some bananas farms on the Big Island. Where do I need to go?

I'm sure Rob would love a visit. I would have you visit my place but it's not really worth a trip out at this point.

I am not sure where any farms are though.

Good luck.

Do you know if the Tarring’s are still around with their Apple Bananas?
