The Anarchy Chocolate Philosophy
Our processes and methodology are intended to produce the finest Thai chocolate for all to enjoy from the tree to the bar.
Anarchy Farm is not certified organic and as anarchists we would not seek the accreditation of a government agency to obtain organic status. We believe good honest food, grown naturally without pesticides, herbicides and hormones is well… simply food, just like grandma used to grow. Produce grown with all the aforementioned poisons should be labelled accordingly. The system is inversed, corrupt and needs changing.
This website is meant as a document of our journey creating a bean to bar chocolate brand in Trat province while supporting local craftsmen and businesses along the way.
We started of with an idea and who knows where the roads will take us? As Dr. Emmett Brown said “Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads! We’d love to take you along with us for the ride. Are you ready?
If you are a visual kinda person, you can follow our processes, wins and failures on YouTube. We post one or two videos per week from Anarchy Farm and get some insights to our lives in Thailand. You’ll also meet our extended family that consists of our two fur babies, Money and Cobain, our chickens, geese and other weird and wonderful animals.
You can also find Anarchy Chocolate on Facebook and Instagram and for purchases outside of Thailand, please visit our Etsy Anarchy Farm store here.
Why Anarchy Chocolate?
Anarchy has a bad rep. The actual word ‘Anarchy‘ has been accosted and subverted. Many people actually think it means chaos and disorder. The true meaning of the word simple means ‘without rulers‘.
Anarchists, we have been lead to believe are mask wearing, molotov cocktail throwing thugs. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Anarchists are also know as voluntarists. Voluntarism is the principle that individuals are free to choose goals and how to achieve them within the bounds of certain societal and cultural constraints, as opposed to actions that are coerced (by force) or predetermined. We are claiming Anarchy back to share it in it’s pure original form, one chocolate bar at a time. Peace, Love & Chocolate!
Anarchy from the Greek; anarkhos “rulerless,” from an- “without” + arkhos “leader”. Anarchy means ‘without rulers’ not ‘without rules’.
