Kai Kai Farms – Martin County

Posted by Lorea Thomson on Thursday, January 24th, 2019 at 12:35am.

 Martin County’s Kai-Kai Farm, located at 8006 S.W. Kanner Highway, Indiantown, FL 34956, is the largest vegetable garden in the county.   Kai-Kai Farm makes its home on 40 acres of mother nature’s beauty in western Martin County.  The picturesque farm is surrounded by charming pastures and soaring eucalyptus trees, rows of vegetables run extensively with brussels sprouts, beans, broccoli, and 80 other assortments of grown-in-the-ground vegetables.  This farm is sought out by chefs and discriminating home cooks.

Carl Frost and Diane Cordeau are the owners of Kai Kai Farm.  At the time when they first met, the two University of Florida lab technicians with the Indian River Research and Education Center fell in love and married in 1988. It was a match made in sustainable agricultural heaven. Their love of traveling eventually brought them to the Solomon Islands and pointed them to their life’s calling.  Arriving on the islands, they were greeted by several tribal leaders and invited for “kai-kai”. They learned “kai-kai” meant gatherings for meals. They observed and then eventually decided that it would be the way they would grow vegetables in an uncomplicated way. Clean, organic farming was their passion and it would be their future careers.

Kai-Kai Farm follows all organic protocols for the local, sustainable farm. These are some of the discernments that the enable the farm to be known as “Martin County’s Largest Vegetable Garden”. Back in January of 2016, Kai-Kai Farm offered a plant-based vegan gourmet dinner.  It was a huge success with the vegan and foodie community.  The first chef dinner was so much enjoyable they decided to bring it back. Sunday, January 27, 2019 Buccans Executive Chef, Clay Connelly will delight your taste buds with a beautiful dinner which will feature food, wine and live music. Space is limited, so please call or visit here.
