Savor Chocolate & Support a Sustainable Farmby 21 Degrees Estate ($)
Disclaimer: This site is following COVID-19 protocols which are updated with the Hawaii State Department of Health and may restrict certain activities.
Elevated above the windward side of O`ahu in the ahupua`a of Kahalu`u, lies an estate where a veteran-owned and family operated single-origin cacao farm practices “malama ka `aina,” to care-for, cultivate, conserve and preserve using sustainable practices with the intent of contributing to future generations. Sadly, without mission driven locally influenced ag practitioners, travelers may never get to experience native places operated in this manner.
Join us as we visit a family that has perfected that practice of making chocolate on-island from bean-to-bar. While here, you may see other delicacies being raised like apple-bananas, coconut, starfruit, turmeric, avocado, mango, guava, breadfruit, lychee and kukui as well as the colorful floral of heliconia, awapuhi, and “torch” ginger flowers, each of which are an important niche in Hawaii’s agriculture. Your support will help advance our mission to create a diverse, safe, healthy, and sustainable Hawaiian farm with clean air, water, soil and power –economically, equitably, and ecologically for all to enjoy.
- Taste chocolate made from bean-to-bar

Visiting this farm is a great way to see up close what is going on with agriculture on Oahu. We learned a lot and appreciated the openness and thoroughness of our hosts. While we were most interested in the cacao, there were other bonuses like feeding and petting goats, learning about bees, and being able to ask these well-informed locals anything under the sun. And sunny it was! So make sure you have sufficient hats, sunscreen and water along for the duration of the tour (unless it is raining and then you will need shoes for muddy terrain). After the tour you will have a chance to purchase their exquisite chocolate bars from their tiny gift shop. It went longer than two hours so factor that into your day as well. A valuable experience that we would do again in the future!
Great Family Experience
Beautiful location. The kids had fun with the goats, the grownups had fun with the chocolate tasting, and we all leaned more about cacao and chocolate in a few hours than we knew possible. Amazing hosts, and even more amazing chocolate!
