Lydgate Farms | Kauai Chocolate Bar
Lydgate Farms is a leader in the emerging Hawaii chocolate industry. All locally-grown and hand-crafted on Kauai, this premiere, single-estate chocolate is rich, silky, and bold. Kauai is one of the best places for growing chocolate with its tropical weather and healthy, fertile soil. When accented with other locally sourced ingredients like honey or vanilla, this estate-grown sweet is sustainable and crave-worthy.
The Lydgates have a history in Hawaiʻi that spans back to the 1860s. They strive to produce high quality products from specialty crops on a small scale. Heedful to the well-being of the land, malama ʻaina, they also use organic fertilizer to build soil health. The Lydgates plan to continue their family’s legacy of supporting sustainability efforts for the benefit of all future generations.
