Taste of the Hawaiian Range Gala and Agriculture Festival. The all-day Taste of the Hawaiian Range is Saturday, Sept. 7 at Mana Christian Ohana (Old Kahilu Town Hall) and the adjacent YMCA Minuke Ole Park in Waimea. The 2019 Taste will again offer daytime agricultural-themed activities before culminating with an evening tasting event showcasing locally produced food. Outdoor fun is 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the YMCA Minuke Ole Park behind Parker Ranch Center. Geared for families, the Taste Agriculture Festival includes educational exhibits under the big top and vendors offering products using locally sourced plants and animals. Attendees can view livestock animals provided by 4-H; horseback rides will be available for a nominal fee. Youth can visit the free Keiki Farm Hands tent sponsored by the Hawaii Farm Bureau. Children can pedal their own kid-sized tractor, use tiny farm tools, plant a seed to take home and grow, plus “milk” a hand-painted replica of a Holstein cow. In addition, there will be a display of live chicks and thriving vegetable plants. Admission to the daytime agriculture festival is free as well as the annual Cooking Pasture-Raised Beef 101 demonstration with sampling from 2:30-4 p.m. The ticketed Taste gala is 5:30-7:30 p.m. inside and out of the Old Kahilu Town Hall. Enjoy local, pasture-raised meats and produce prepared by Hawaii Island chefs and culinary students for $50 presale and $60 at the door. Tickets go on sale July 1: www.tasteofthehawaiianrange.com.
