Aloha and Welcome as we gather around the information table at Sharkey's 100-year old farmhouse in the historic plantation village of Papaikou. Sample our freshly brewed 100% Hawaiian coffee or cacao tea, grown right here on the farm. From there we begin an easy walk through our orchards where you'll learn about Hawaiian coffee growth and production. Interwoven behind the coffee are rows of cacao trees. Depending on the time of year, you can usually see tiny flowers and large, multi-colored pods hanging from trunks and branches. Long, heavy vanilla vines grow up the cacao trees, nature's perfect trellis! We'll show you how each vanilla orchid is delicately hand-pollinated to produce long "hands" of vanilla beans. We'll then proceed to the "Slab" where the pods are 'cracked' before the fermentation process. Next we move into the greenhouse where flats of newly planted seedlings just beginning their journey grow alongside large screens filled with coffee and cacao beans slowly drying to perfection. Finally we'll move into our certified Chocolate Kitchen where the Magic happens! Who wants a taste? Free samples!

    What a great time. Sharkey loves talking about his passion of coffee, cocoa, and vanilla beans. It was absolutely fascinating hearing about all sorts of Hawaiian history and geography.

    If you can only pick one farm tour on the Big Island this is it!!! I can't recommend the tour more highly and I am so glad that we made it work. We trekked across the island from our base in Kona on our final day on the island and were not disappointed. Shark and Ana are both real gems. First, the education was simply amazing- we learned all about cacao, coffee and vanilla. We got to see them growing, help pollinate a vanilla bean pod, taste each stage of the cacao from fruit, to bean, to chocolate! You can tell that this isn't just a business- this is a vocation- and as both a former teacher and lifelong learner, Tom Shark's passion for the craft and knowledge was present in every moment. He is a great storyteller! To top it off we left with more samples than the value of the tour! While we were there we also found out they have this amazing treehouse for rent on Airbnb which we would definitely stay in on our next visit to the island. What a hidden gem!

    An incredible chocolate journey! The full bean to bar experience. A geographic lesson in Hawaii, a walk through the farm where you can touch and feel all of the plants, chocolate making, and LOTS OF CHOCOLATE TO TAKE HOME. 10/10 recommend for a fabulous morning on the big island.

    This was such a cool experience! I learned a lot about cacao, vanilla, and coffee, as well as information about the island! One of my favorite parts was learning that you can drink cacao juice! I never knew the fruit was sooo yummy! It's hard to find cacao juice, so you'll have to book with them to learn how yummy it is! Also, Tom was friendly and interesting. It was nice walking around his farm with him and chatting!

    Tom was a great storyteller and we thoroughly enjoyed the farm. All 6 of us learned something from the experience and highly recommend this tour. Come with all your questions and you will not be disappointed.

    This was a fantastic tour! Tom is very, very friendly and he shared a lot of stories in addition to giving us an educational tour. We learned about cacao, vanilla, and coffee beans and we also saw the making for it all. The anecdotes throughout gave such a personal touch that this ended up being one of the best Airbnb experiences we have had. We highly recommend it, if you are in the area. Check it out!!
