Kulike Forest Farm

Hakalau, HI 96710

Kulike Forest Farm is an off-grid, organic, permaculture farm on the Hamakua coast of Big Island.  Our goal is to be energy and food self-sufficient and restore soil health and flora/fauna diversity to this piece of the island.  Our main crop is cacao, which we make into a unique 100% Hawaiian, honey-sweetened chocolate bar.   This chocolate embodies the values of the farm - made with all Hawaiian ingredients, in partnership with other small organic farmer friends, with all aspects of production as clean and simple and good to the earth as possible.


To buy Hakalau Chocolate, visit our online shop.  If you are nearby, you can visit our farm; contact us if this interests you.   


We also have a guest house "Forest Hale," for short-term rentals, nestled in a tropical food forest within a short walk to our stunning waterfall, with a swimming hole.  As guests, you can have a tour  of our edible landscape featuring cacao and numerous other edible plants.  You can collect eggs in our Korean Natural Farming chicken house, and visit tortoises, bunnies, and ducks.   Here is a short video exploring the farm:

We are members of OneTreePlanted , and donate 3% of all proceeds to this essential planet-healing action - meaning at least one tree is planted for every farm tour, and three trees for every night at our guest house! 



Forest Hale is a complete cottage just a short walk to our waterfall and within a tropical food forest.  There is a king size bed on the main floor and two twin beds in a low loft.  We are Airbnb superhosts!
