In winemaking, there’s a concept called “terroir,” which refers to a region, like Bordeaux or Burgundy, with a special set of soil and weather conditions that gives its wine a distinct flavor and personality. Chocolate making is no different. Burdick Chocolate has consistently sought out the best cocoa-growing regions in the world, and we were drawn to the Caribbean island nation of Grenada for this very reason. The cocoa that grows in Grenada stands out because of the island’s favorable environmental conditions and rich volcanic soil.
Grenada, a lush mountainous realm covered with fragrant spice trees and tropical flowers, is known as the “Spice Isle,” redolent in the scents of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla. We would like it to be known as the "Cocoa Isle" as well. Additionally, the Island has thousands of independant farmers with intimate knowledge of the cocoa production process.

Hello, I am Kim. I have a 200 hundred year old, fifteen acre, organic cocoa estate, overlooking the caribbean sea. We are situated at Cray fish bay, Non-Pariel, in the parish of St Marks, a quiet rural area away from the main tourist scene.
I am now able to offer self catering holidays to those wanting something different from the norm. The "Little House" is of wooden construction and comprised of two bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, fully equipped kitchenette, and large shaded balcony. There is even a loft sleeping space, great for the kids.
The "Little House" is situated at the edge of the cocoa plantation, just a minutes walk away from a fresh water spring and small waterfall, with the caribbean just a minutes walk in the opposite direction. There are numerous beautiful beaches close by. All the fruit and vegetables produced on the farm are organic and are available to guests. Fresh fish from the local fishermen and markets are available at all times. Within thirty minutes drive in any direction there are numerous resturants both local and international catering for all pockets and tastes. For those who like an evening drink, there are the local rum shops, where you will be given a warm welcome. For those interested in flora and fauna there is an abundance of plants and flowers to enjoy and some rare birds too. If that isn't enough, watch Grenada's Mona monkeys, in the trees across the valley, whilst having your breakfast. I am close to a regular bus route which can take you around the island or you can hire a vehicle for further exploring. Airport transfers can be arranged at minimal cost.
Cost - $300 US per week for up to six people.
