In 1850, King Kamehameha III (Keaweaweʻula Kīwalaʻō Kauikeaouli Kaleiopapa) sold approximately 622 acresof land at Kualoa to Dr. Gerritt P. Judd.Later, additional acreage in the Hakipuʻu and Kaʻaʻawa valleys were purchased by Dr. Judd’s son Charles Hasting Judd from Queen Kalama’s land holdings.
Between 1863 – 1870, the Kualoa Sugar Mill was built and operated by Charles H. Judd and Samuel G. Wilder.
During World War II, the United States Military operated an auxiliary Army airstrip at Kualoa with many of the large monkeypod trees providing natural hangars for small planes.
Here is a little of what they say about their cattle:
Kualoa Ranch has been a working cattle ranch since the 1870’s. Raising beef cattle for export carried Kualoa Ranch as the main source of income for over a hundred years. Though cattle ranching is not the primary source of revenue today, Kualoa Ranch is still a working cattle ranch raising beef cattle on all parts of the property. All of our cattle are local. They are not brought in from out of state. The cows are born and raised on Kualoa Ranch property and bulls are purchased from within the state of Hawai`i.
We have six different breeds of cattle at Kualoa Ranch. We have Black Angus, Brahma, Brangus (Brahma/Angus cross-breed), Hereford, Limousin, and Charolais.
Here is what they say about it:
- Ancient Hawaiian Archaeological Sites: Seventy-eight sites of interest have been identified here, highlighting religious shrines, housing sites, agricultural terraces, and ancient fishponds.
We avoided the big city of Honolulu and the crowded beaches of Waikiki, it's not our speed.
We spent the last night at our condo, sitting on "OUR" beach, drinking wine and watching the sunset. In fact, this is how we spent every single night that we were there. It was the best part of the trip.
