Did you know Hawaii is the only state in the nation that can grow chocolate? Chocolate lovers will learn about the history, health benefits and more during a three-hour tour of the Lydgate Farms (formerly known as Steelgrass Farm). Indulge in the many tastings of their award-winning honey, vanilla beans, tropical fruit and, of course, chocolate.

The Lydgate family has run this well-known 46-acre orchard with more than 1,000 chocolate trees for five generations dating back to 1867. The very knowledgeable family members lead the fascinating tour and teach visitors about “Chocolate From Branch to Bar.” This includes how to taste chocolate like a connoisseur and the history of chocolate dating back to its discovery by the first Mesoamericans.
