Overview
More
Lydgate Farms is run by our fifth generation Kaua’i family. We grow high-quality cacao to make the finest craft chocolate. We also grow award-winning vanilla and honey. Our 46-acre farm sits above the town of Kapa’a, between Sleeping Giant and Mt. Wai’ale’ale. Lydgate Farms is in an ahupua’a (land division) named Olohena, known for its rolling hills and the numerous springs and rivers that make this valley fertile for growing. Often called the Garden Island, Kaua’i is the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands and, as a result, has the most developed soils and fertile growing conditions. In addition to our specialty crops, you’ll find a wide variety of botanicals around our farm that influence the taste of our honey and chocolate. Visit us in Wailua for an interactive farm tour and chocolate tasting.

Fantastic tour aside, Andrea and Kate (the tour guides) went beyond expectations to accommodate me. I have health problems and on bad days I can be so exhausted that standing and walking can be really difficult. We mentioned this to Andrea and asked if I...More

This is a great way to see coco plants and taste many other types of tropical fruit. Unlike other botanical garden tours, you are more free to touch and taste around you. It's a good first stop to get a feel for the island. The...More

Went with my family (husband, 8 and 15 yr old sons, and my mother). We all enjoyed the tour and the chocolate tasting. If you have time, it’s a great experience.

I'd agree with Laura C here. Over age 6 or so, once the kids are held by verbal discourse, the whole tour is engaging. For kids under that age, or one's who like to run around more, the first half is more engaging, then they... More
