Support Hawaiʻi Agricultural Tourism
We have a long history of conducting agricultural tours on island and proudly partner with this local Maui chocolate factory to create a delicious and enriching experience. Hawaiʻi is the only U.S. state where cacao can be grown outside. Our guests love the cacao farm and factory’s commitment to quality, sustainability, and community. Discover the fascinating chocolate process and our efforts to honor Hawaiian values such as kuleana, which can be defined as privilege and responsibility. We aim to raise awareness of agritourism and farming in Hawaiʻi through this enlightening and meaningful chocolate excursion.

This immersive and hands-on tour introduces you to our more than 8,000 of cacao trees spread across 20+ acres. These trees provide raw material for our world-class, award-winning chocolate, which you will get to learn about through the fruit harvesting techniques and production process that goes from farm, to factory, to chocolate bar.
Our friendly and informative guides will answer all your cacao questions, so don’t be shy! They’ll also share what the company does to honor our kuleana (privilege and responsibility) to the land and our community.

We do our best to source as locally as possible and use more eco-friendly supplies for our packaging and services as we strive to constantly improve our sustainability efforts.
