Overview
More
Wholesale production of carob, chocolate, honeycomb and brittle confectionery products. Public viewing of production is free so are the tastings. A full retail shop to buy at factory prices & mail order is available. Tea/coffee is available and a colouring-in table for the little ones. Group tours are available for free but bookings are essential as we already have pre-booked tours throughout the year, so email or phone call will prevent double booking. Our grounds are park-like and suitable for picnics. Public toilets - change table.

It's a quick, sweet treat stop that will suit young and old not far off the highway and near close to the Big Banana.
