Lydgate Farms Kauai Chocolate, Kapaa

Farm · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Steelgrass Farm is a Kauai family farm dedicated to sustainable diversified agriculture. We grow chocolate, vanilla, award winning honey, timber bamboo, tropical fruits and flowers, lettuces and market vegetables, ginger and turmeric on forty-six acres near Kapaa on Kauai's east side.

Hi, I'm Will Lydgate, co-owner of the farm with my sister Emily. We're the fifth generation of the Lydgate family on Kauai, and we're dedicated to sharing our knowledge, so ten years ago we started the Steelgrass Chocolate Farm Tour, the only chocolate tour and tasting on a genuine family farm on Kauai.

We're also growing our farm, expanding from our current thousand chocolate trees toward our goal of four thousand. We are already Kauai's largest chocolate grower, and reaching that goal will make our orchard one of the largest in the state -- which also means in the country, since Hawaii is the only state where chocolate trees will grow.

The taste testing of the fruit and chocolate were both delicious. I tasted fruits I had never even heard of before!
