At Sweet Farm Tours, the Puglisi family have been growing sugarcane for approximately years.
As one of the Daintree Estates cocoa plantations, Sweet Farm Tours is also a proud pioneer of cocoa growing in Australia.
Daintree Estates is the first commercial manufacturer in history to make chocolate using cocoa grown right here in Australia.
Daintree Estates is also one of a small handful of Plantation to Plate cocoa producers, meaning they have total control over every stage of processing.
At Sweet Farm Tours, you’ll not only hear and see the story directly from one of the first commercial cocoa growers in Australia, but you’ll get to taste our amazing Australian grown chocolate for yourself.
Hosts Gerard and Therese Puglisi continue to embrace innovation on their cane and cocoa farm as well as operate the tours.
