Shipping & Delivery Estimates

We love chocolate! And we take great care in shipping it directly from our farm on Kauai to you! For more detailed information, please visit our FAQs page.

When do you ship?

Due to hot summer temperatures, we ship all orders on Monday and Tuesday of each week. An order placed on Monday will arrive by Wednesday at the earliest and Friday at the latest. All orders placed on Tuesday afternoon until Monday morning will go out on the following Monday or Tuesday. Current FedEx staffing issues occasionally cause further delays. Check our FAQs for information on international shipping.

How is it packaged?

Chocolate is temperature sensitive, so we pack each order with special care. Your shipment may come in an insulated box with ice packs depending on weather conditions and should be brought inside immediately.

  • For 72-78° F: chocolate is packed in an insulated bag with one reusable ice pack.
  • For 79-84° F: chocolate is packed in a foil insulated liner with ice packs proportional to how much chocolate there is.
  • For 85+° F: chocolate is packed in a foil insulated liner with at least two ice packs, sometimes more depending on how much chocolate there is.
Awesome, thanks for the info!

We have had beehives on our farm since our earliest days, and our respect for these first hives runs deep. Those of you who are fans of our honey will recognize your favorite honey with a new name: Upcountry Estate. An all time classic and multi-award winner, this is the new look of our famous Kauai Palm Blossom Honey. While our foxtail, coconut, prichardia, and other palm collections still give our honey a distinctive flavor, other sources of nectar contribute including lychee, longan, and orange blossom. Find ripe-exotic tropical fruit aromas lightly balanced with a delightful citrusy note. A complex honey, and very rewarding.

Raw Hawaiian honey is an excellent source of antioxidants and has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that can soothe sore throats and aid digestion. Enjoy straight off the spoon or in a cup of Lydgate Farms Cacao Shell Tea.
