About
Safe, fun, and open for Locals and Visitors! 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.

Quick Stop Off
Jun 2021
Informative visit to the farm. Sampled chocolate and took some home with us. It was only open for 3 hrs. and was quite warm since we were there around noon. I would highly recommend bug spray. The host was very prepared and had water, bug spray of all sorts, sunblock for all the visitors.

Sweeter than honey!
Jun 2021
This is an educational, informative, and fun tour that includes delicious tastings of fruits and of course, chocolate! Our tour guide Alexandria was phenomenal. Her passion for sustainability, agriculture, and health really shines through. We left with an appreciation for the beautiful planet we inhabit and all of its treasures. It opened our eyes to not only the world of chocolate, but also to the world of farming, and made us really think about where our food is coming from. Thank you to Alexandria and Lydgate Farms for such a great experience. Highly recommend! P.S. Obviously the chocolate is amazing but don’t sleep on the honey. It’s a sweet surprise!

Educational and Entertaining

Our tour guide, Will, was excellent. He was knowledgeable, patient, and entertaining. We learned about many native plants, tasted some exotic fruits (some with the farm's wonderful honey), as well as over a dozen tastes of chocolate. It was intriguing to learn about the cacao bean process to the delicious end result...and comparing it to the best chocolates from around the world. Highly recommend!

Fun, Educational taste of Kauai!

The guide is very knowledgeable and the farm tour is a great way to familiarize yourself with some Kauai plants, vanilla orchids and chocolate growing and harvesting process. I’ll never look or taste chocolate the same. So much respect for their work and craft.

Lydgate Farms Tour
Jun 2021
Lydgate Farms is definitely a hidden-ish gem on Kauai. We went in not really knowing what to expect from the tour and left feeling like we had one of the best experiences on the island. We were really looking forward to the chocolate, but the fruit tasting ended up being one of the best parts. Basically, do this tour if you can!

Must do!
Jun 2021 • Family
If this is your first visit or fourth to Kauai, visiting Lydgate Farms is a must do and see. We were fortunate to have the owner Will lead our tour. Extremely informative. Fruit tasting of what was in season. And the chocolate tasting (12 kinds) was yummy and educational. Good fir the whole family, my teenage daughter enjoyed herself as well.

I had fun. I learned. I ate divine chocolate. Best tour on sll the islands if you love plants and chicolate.

They graciously accommodated this cautious 70+ grandma trying to navigate slippery paths in the rain. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was more than reasonably priced. And only 4% sales tax so best to stock up there but you can order online. I did a chocolate tasting in Napa Valley at the Culinary Institute that pales in comparison to this one.
