2017 Legacy Farmers

Wonderful to help celebrate the 2017 Maui Legacy Farmers. The honorees were Doug MacCluer, Pat Iwamoto (holding photo of late father Dr. Wilbert Yee), Peter Baldwin and Richard “Dick” Cameron. The four Maui farmers were honored for their contributions to agriculture on the island. MacCluer worked with Maui Pineapple Co. and then “helped save pineapple” when the company closed. He is part of the team that formed Maui Pine’s successor, Hali’imaile Pineapple Co., which produces Maui Gold pineapples. Dr. Yee was an optometrist who became famous for growing mangoes in Kihei. Baldwin is a member of the Paniolo Hall of Fame, former owner of Haleakala Dairy and founder and president of Pi’iholo Ranch. Cameron grew up in the sugar cane business on the Big Island and Kauai before serving as manager of Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. from 1982 to 1997.
