Molokai Once “Honey Capitol” of the WorldJuly 20, 2016, 9:31 PM HST · Updated July 20, 9:31 PM Meteorologist Malika Dudley · 0 Comments
According to Brenda Kaneshiro of Molokai Meli, Molokai was once the number one honey exporter of the world. In the early 1900’s Molokai Ranch had countless hives. Unfortunately a disease affected the bees and they were nearly all wiped out.
Today, beekeepers are reviving Molokai’s honey market. Malika Dudley was on Molokai recently and checked in with Brenda of Molokai Meli and Micah Buchanan of Molokai Gold.
Check out the video above for the cute details of how Molokai Meli came about and how you can get your hands on some Molokai Gold.
