Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Company commemorates its final sugar harvest today (Monday, Dec. 12, 2016) following months of transition work.
The event was marked by a tournahauler bringing in the last load of sugarcane to the Puʻunēnē Mill.
The company also previewed its plans and progress in diversified agriculture with a look at its cattle pasture trials.
In early 2016, Alexander & Baldwin announced its plans to discontinue sugar production on Maui, marking an end of an era for sugar on Maui and in the state of Hawaiʻi.
*The final harvest program begins at 9:30 a.m. and is closed to the public, but will be streamed live at the link above. The final tournahauler will drive up and unload cane at 10 a.m.
