Ranching and diversified Agriculture are the primary industries in the Hamakua district and those industries have allowed Honokaa’s downtown district to maintain a quaint historical appeal while supplying everything needed to support not only the farms and ranches but our growing population or residents and visitors.
Honokaa’s business district is designed to provide all the services of a ‘big city’ while enjoying small town service and smiles.
Post Office, Banking, Pharmacy, Health Care Center, Dentists, Insurance, Beauty Salon, Restaurants, Shops, Attorneys’ offices,Theater, University Extension and Art Galleries are all within walking distance.
Our community’s commitment to focus on quality of life has fostered entrepreneurial spirits and independent business owners supply the Hamakua area with Construction, Electrical, Trucking & Gravel as well as Computer Repair, Cleaning Systems, Office Support, Delivery and Energy services.
Education is also a key priority in our community, as is the belief we are only as strong as our weakest member. The Arc of Kona provides special services for those in need and The Brantley Center provides specialized training.
Before leaving town, plan to picnic at nearby Waipio Valley or Kalopa Park. Stop in to shop for supplies and treats at Malama Market, or enjoy some real local flavor with a hormone free, locally grown beef freom JJ’s Country Store!
