A look back through old photos. The Blue Mountains has been our home for over 25 years. We’ve seen a lot of changes, though I am happy to report that the community of Lime Tree has remained largely the same and relatively undeveloped. For years we lived a very basic existence, no electric or piped water – and ants in the biscuits!
After a tip off from a local birding guide, along with guests we checked out a new birding site – Mahogany Vale ( pronounced locally as ‘ Mogganyvill’). Good spot, as well as endemics, sighted egrets, herons, a Louisiana water thrush, ducks and water fowl.
Wishing all our guests, past present and future a happy, healthy and peaceful new year. If you make some money as well, that’s a bonus.
As promised, our MP Juliet Holness returned with her photographer. Perfect location with the Blue Mountains as a back drop.
Followed by our own Blue Mountain coffee, what more could you ask for?
Our MP, Juliet Holness visited our community to discuss (among other topics), the bad condition of our road. After dinner at the farm and a cup of Blue Mountain coffee we were promised help in the way of materials. Along with our community ‘road days’ this should see an improvement in driving conditions to the farm in the near future.
The winter birds are arriving for their annual holiday in the Blue Mountains. Traditionally, this is a busy time for us at Lime Tree Farm with keen birders from all over the world visiting. As a tropical island, Jamaica is a bird haven all year round. Over the course of a year and counting the wide range of migrant species, more than 300 bird species may be seen in Jamaica. Of them, more than 125 breed on the island, and 28 are found nowhere else in the world. We offer competitive birding packages individually tailored to suit any itinerary.
