Our team visited Maui and was allowed to film the burning of sugar cane fields before the harvest. Maui is the location of the last operating sugar cane plantation in Hawaii.
Big mahalo to Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Company for allowing us to film this part of Hawaii’s agricultural history that we could not capture on Hawaii Island.
