Our story

With the shared vision to improve human nutrition while preserving the world's natural resources, Larry Ellison and David Agus brought Sensei Ag to life. One of the key milestones was building Sensei Farms Lāna‘i to grow food more sustainably, locally.

Welcome to Lāna‘i

Out in the middle of the Pacific, amongst the Hawaiian archipelago, you will find the island of Lāna‘i, the sixth largest island of Hawaii. Once connected to the other islands of Maui County, it now stretches 140 square miles long and is home to over three thousand residents.

Continuing the island's agricultural legacy

From ranching to world's largest pineapple plantation, Lāna‘i is no stranger to agriculture. Considering the island's agricultural past reminds us to build upon the island's legacy, but also to evolve.

At Sensei Farms Lāna‘i, we grow in six solar-powered greenhouses, that can produce over half a million pounds of produce each year.

Mindful farmers

We choose to grow in greenhouses because in today's unpredictable environment, growing indoors gives our plants the best chance of success and produces the greatest yield with minimal footprint. We have the ability to deliver the ideal amount of nutrients to each plant, control the climate within each greenhouse, and even conserve precious resources like recycling our water.

Bringing wellness to all the islands

We do all of this, each day, with aloha and with the goal of growing the best produce for our island communities. The care our team members take and their passion for our mission translate into the noticeable difference you'll taste in our vegetables. Welcome us to your kitchen table and experience nourishment like you never have before.
