Availability: Sorry, sold out. More coming soon.


Big Tree Farm's Truly Raw Peeled Cacao Beans are make a great snack. This cacao is legendary for its mild gentle flavor, making it a preferred bean for specialty chocolate makers.  So, when eating it in the raw, the gentle flavor makes it easy to snack on and blend with any other kind of food.

And the flavour is milder compared to other raw beans on the market... why?  Well, flavor begins with the beans and there are many different varieties of beans out there.. just like wine.  BTF beans are descended from the original Criollo of Southern Mexico / Northern Guatemala.  The Spanish brought this legendary cacao to the Philippines back in the 1600s and from there, the cacao spread down to Indonesia and onto Bali.  

Perfect in your homemade trail mix, granola, dessert toppings or just by themselves.

Bringing a legendary jungle food right to you so you can avoid the mosquitos.  Although, you are more than welcome to come harvest with them!

Big Tree Farms is a vertically integrated impact brand with a focus on unique ingredients from South-East Asia. Our supply chains are committed to direct transparent trade with smallholder producers of coconut and cacao.

Big Tree Farms, now Indonesia’s largest organic food company, operating SE Asia’s largest organic integrated supply chain, was started in 2003 as a small-scale organic farming training venture and has developed into a vertically integrated social enterprise focused on production and export of food products for retail and ingredient channels globally. Our corporate mission is to inspire beneficial change through the creation of innovative and health-forward food products that provide sustainable health, economy and environment to our customers, farmer/suppliers and company community.

From all things raw, to working to build sustainable livelihoods for their farmer partners, to being good stewards of ecology, Big Tree Farms is a champion for a brighter future in food and it's an ethos that starts right at the top.

Ben Ripple, one of the founders, had set a foundation of six long years in sustainable agriculture on his small Balinese farm but, in 2006 things quickly began to evolve towards the company as it is today, when Big Tree Farms started to work with a small group of cacao farmers on Western Bali. The goal was to create more transparent market access for these farmers, by helping add value to their cacao and selling to the global premium chocolate market.

It was pure serendipity that Ben was introduced to Frederick Schilling, the founder of Dagoba, an innovator in gourmet and organic chocolate. With Frederick's expertise, and a lot of hard work, our cacao program flourished and became the global model for a transparent sustainable cacao program. The next question was, "how can we add more value to the cacao and not just sell the bulk beans?" The answer was clear, our marvelous beans transformed into deliciously responsible chocolate products.

Ben, an expert in sustainable and ethical supply chains and Frederick, a passionate and innovative chocolate expert navigate the tricky waters of sustainable, ethical, and organic tropical food stuffs with an elegance that belies the true effort and determination it takes to do things right. Yet, after extensive trial and error, Big Tree Farms became the first company in the world to produce a truly raw cold processed organic cacao powder and butter. Big Tree then went on to introduce the world to the first organic coconut sugar and nectar.

Today, Big Tree Farms helps set the stage globally for demand of nutritious foods, being the first to offer on-demand coconut water, a more sustainable option than bottled; to pioneering cold-processed cacao products; and our coconut sugar, which authorities have called "the best alternative to cane sugar". Thanks to the passion and drive of its founders Ben and Frederick, Big Tree Farms continues to innovate and lead in emerging categories.

Big Tree Farms operates what we call sustainable supply chains on more than 10 islands across Indonesia’s archipelago of 17,000 islands and atolls. These sustainable supply chains are actually deeply involved social relationships with individual farmers and community farmer groups. The producers involved become part of our tight-knit community and their needs, hopes and dreams become integral to our corporate vision.

When Big Tree Farms first began growing bio-intensively in the central highlands of Bali, the vision was to create a sustainable model of small-scale agriculture for growers in the humid tropics. An immaculate cultural heritage of sustainable farming had been nearly wiped out years before by transnational campaign extolling the market-oriented virtues of the new commercial farm culture. High input use and overly intensive production systems were established and quickly zapped the strength of the fragile tropical soils.

The beautiful system of old simply didn’t work economically, and the precepts of “new” farming simply didn’t work ecologically. Small farmers were becoming disenfranchised and anything began to look better than the choice to farm. The key to the model developed by Big Tree Farms was creating the power of choice. By creating a model that worked both economically and ecologically, small farmers were able to celebrate the unique attributes of their agricultural heritage while still succeeding in the marketplace. The farms are finally “working” for the farmers. Balance.
