HARC's 108-acre, lower Kunia site is situated to the NW of the H-1/Kunia Road intersection. Previously, that location was primed for urban expansion. In late 2009, after years of navigating through the regulatory hurdles, HARC sold its rights to develop the area through the federal Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program. Both the National Resources Conservation Service and the State's Agribusiness Development Corporation purchased the conservation easement to guarantee keeping the land in agriculture in perpetuity
