‘Sweet Farm Tours’ Sugar & Cocoa
Ten years ago, Daintree Estates was little more than a wild idea to do something no one in Australia had ever been game to try: to grow cocoa in Far North Queensland, then use that locally grown cocoa to create the finest quality chocolate, and do it in the most ethical and equitable way possible.
From pods to product Located in the pristine heart of the Daintree region, Daintree Cocoa grows young cocoa trees in the nursery facilities on the estates of their growers. Many of these growers are third and fourth generation farmers in the region.
All are passionate about maintaining the Daintree as it is and practising farming techniques that minimise the impact on this pristine environment.
