J. Ludovico Farm is a family owned operations that started in 2011. The operations has three sites on Oahu. Two of the sites are focused on pasture raised poultry for meat. The third location is currently in development and will focus on specialty crops.
The operations did not intend to be a commercial endeavor. The initial goal was to supplement food needs for the growing family and minimize food needs from the markets.
With some training and knowledge in Korean Natural Farming gained by Julius Ludovico in 2010, an acre and half was presented to practice and apply a gardening/farming endeavor. In the first year, crops such as asparagus, kabocha, lilikoi, cassava, dragon fruit, curry trees, bananas, and galangal were grown. Two pigs, two goats, and a group of ducks were added shortly after.
The chickens sneaked in by accident. At first , a flock of 50 laying hens and eventually settling to about 200. The meat chickens were added concurrently during this time. The other animals were eventually phased out slowly. And after a few years, the egg laying hens too.
We have been very fortunate to acquire help and assistance from many individuals and other businesses which allowed us to operate for the past ten years. Our continued success is a reflection of everyone’s support. For that, we are very humbled and grateful.
J. Ludovico Farm consists of Julius, Jamie, Maria, Lucy, Ellie, and Jack Ludovico.
