Hawaiian Cowboy

Cover Story: Parker Ranch - Home of the Hawaiian Cowboy

I feel a particularly special responsibility,” said Dutch Kuyper, President and CEO of Hawaii’s historic Parker Ranch.  “Staring at me now is a portrait of A.W. Carter, who ran the Ranch as manager from 1899 to 1937.”  Kuyper’s high-ceilinged office is just off the grand parlor of sixth-generation Parker family home “Puuopelu.”   It looks over windswept green pastures and aloha-tended gardens, a spread ascending into the foothills of Kohala and Mauna Kea mountains of “the Big Island” and beyond.
