Martin County’s largest vegetable garden is Kai-Kai Farms. The owners of Kai-Kai Farms, Carl Frost and Diane Cordeau, were two lab technicians for the University of Florida, Indian River Research and Education Center that met, fell in love, and married in 1988. It was a match made in sustainable farming heaven.
Their love of traveling brought them to the Solomon Islands and pointed them in the direction of what their life’s work would be. Upon reaching the islands, they were greeted by various tribal chiefs and invited for kai-kai. They learned kai-kai meant food gatherings. They learned how they grew vegetables in a very basic way. They decided that farming would be their future.Kai-Kai Farms follows all organic protocols for the local, sustainable farm. It is with these concepts that the farm is able to be called “Martin County’s Largest Vegetable Garden”. In January of 2016, Kai-Kai Farms offered a plant based vegan gourmet dinner. It was a huge hit with the vegan and foodie community. The first vegan dinner was so much fun they are bringing back. A “Plant Based Gourmet Dinner “will be presented by Chef Alex and the Green Rebels, Saturday, April 23, 2016 at Kai-Kai Farms. The vegan delight dinner will feature food, wine and live music.
