There is a modest farm nestled a wee bit north of the tourist hub of Port Douglas, here you will find a plantation where chocolate grows from the trees. A place that will take you on a journey of discovery on how to love and enjoy chocolate even more than you do now. It’s a setting that offers a true bean-to-bar experience that will tantalize all your senses and leave everlasting joy in your heart and a hum on your tastebuds.
This special box of chocolates contains the beautiful life of Darryl and Jenny Kirk, founders of The Australian Chocolate Farm. You see a beautiful life is the nuance of a meaningful life, one where you can live your passion - something that is coming into fruition for the Kirks as they keep building towards what is to come; An opportunity to share their story of the very special chocolate grown and made in Tropical North Queensland, through a unique café attraction paired with tours and of course drool worthy tastings.
There is much more to a block of chocolate than just eagerly unwrapping the foil to squealing delight. The best chocolates are not about sugar cravings at all, but about the cacao and the unique stories behind each origin and it all starts from the ground up.
