Kfarhata ( known also as Kfar Hata, Kafrhata, Arabic: كفرحاتا‎ ) is a Greek Orthodox village located in the Koura District in the North Governorate of Lebanon. It is one of the 52 towns of El-Koura, situated at the southern region of this district, at the other side of Al-Kateh(The cutter); a shallow but wide valley, separating a group of 6 towns from the gigantic El-Koura olive plains.

Although the mountainous profile of this town, the olive trees cultivation is equally successful and popular, with high quality of olive oil, extracted with the traditional Koranian cold technique.
