Kfarhata ( known also as Kfar Hata, Kafrhata, Arabic: كفرحاتا ) is a 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.

The population is Greek Orthodox and Maronite.[1]

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.
