Honolulu- Senator J. Kalani English welcomes Bio-Logical Capital as the new owners of Hāna Ranch, located on the island of Maui. Bio-Logical Capital and Hāna Ranch announced today that they have signed a purchase and sale agreement.
A land investment, development, revitalization, and conservation company, Bio-Logical Capital plans to continue sustainable cattle ranching and expand organic farming, as well as other stewardship activities.
"Bio-Logical Capital's plan to preserve cattle ranching on Hāna Ranch makes them the right fit as new owners and contributing neighbors in our community," said Senator J. Kalani English, who is a resident of Hāna.
"As an advocate of environmental preservation and sustainability, I support Bio-Logical Capital's intent to look into other sustainable and diversified agricultural opportunities while being mindful of our culture and connection to our land," Senator English added, who represents Hāna, East and Upcountry Maui, Moloka'i, Lāna'i and Kaho'olawe.
Hāna Ranch, which measures 4,500 acres, consists of the land surrounding Hāna, including the land between the town and the ocean. The ranch is made up of 3,000 acres of pasture land and 1,500 acres of forest preserve.
"This is a great opportunity for Bio-Logical Capital and the entire Hāna community and I look forward to being part of the conversation as we continue to move forward in creating a sustainable economy and way of life."
