Lillie Belle Farms Handmade Chocolates

When our guests are looking for something out of the ordinary to enjoy while vacationing here in Ashland and in the greater Rogue Valley, I always suggest a trip to Lillie Belle Chocolates in Central Point, about a 20-minute drive north of Abigail's.  Every piece of delectable goodness is handmade and each piece has an original artistic flair.  To really understand the artistry of Lillie Belle, take 2:49 minutes to watch this short film about the making of the Octopus's undersea garden creation, only then will you truly understand!

"With almost 2 acres of organic raspberries, strawberries, and marionberries, we at Lillie Belle Farms utilize our abundant crops to make delicious fruit filled bon bons and truffles. In fact, almost all of our ingredients are organic; from the nuts, to the nibs to the sugar. We pride ourselves on our commitment to sustainability and organic ingredients. All of our chocolates are made with a proprietary blend of organic couvertures. We explore equitable trade sources from around the globe whose commitment to organic sustainable agriculture equals our own. ...Lillie Belle Farms is situated at the entrance to the Applegate Valley region of Southern Oregon. Jeff, Belle, and Lillie Shepherd have made this their home. We are a Certified Organic Farm with hundreds of organically cultivated Raspberry, Marionberry and Strawberry plants to tend. This rich and peaceful place is where all of the berries used in our chocolates are grown."

It's a different combination of flavors, but people love it!
The gift shop and through the windows is where the magic happens.
Yes, it's made of chocolate.
Wouldn't this job just make you so happy?!
These are known as VooDoo Bunnies.  I'll let you think about why that is.
Yep, made of chocolate.
