About Will Lydgate


Will Lydgate is a leader in the new Hawaiian craft chocolate industry. A chocolate educator, chocolate tasting specialist, and manager at Steelgrass Farm, whose chocolate beans have been rated as among the best in the world, Will speaks on topics that hold the key to transforming our cultural relationship with chocolate and revitalizing agriculture in HI.


Fresh from his Tedx talk titled Changing the way we think about Chocolate, Will’s mission is to spread the much-needed message that dark chocolate is not only delicious; one  of the most powerful health foods known to man, it also holds an important key to the future prosperity of the Hawaiian islands.

 Will is from the island of Kauai, HI where his family first emigrated in 1867, making him the fifth-generation of Hawai`i Lydgates. Will hosts popular chocolate farm tours and tastings five days per week at his Steelgrass Farm in Wailua. In addition to chocolate, his farm raises award-winning honey, vanilla, and tropical fruits.


Will is also an accomplished instrumental performer, music producer, and educator.
