Not an easy road.

By

There has been some concern from prospective guests regarding the condition of our road. While not unjustified, this does require some clarification.

From Kingston to Mavis Bank Coffee Factory the road is, while not in great condition, still easily driveable in any town vehicle.

The road from the factory to the farm (around 20 minutes) is rough, best to have a vehicle with good ground clearance ,preferably 4 wheel drive.

We offer a complimentary return transfer from the factory to the farm. Vehicles can be safely parked at the factory.

Over the years many guests have driven to the farm, and enjoyed the adventure and experience – pretty well summing up a stay at Lime Tree Farm.

Here in the blue mountains – at the end of every bad  road you will find unspoiled beauty, peace and quiet.

 

 

Late coffee crop.

By

Due to our ever changing climate, each year is different regarding all or crops – plantain, banana, citrus, pears, vegetables etc. In particular, this year, our coffee crop. We appear to be having a last minute rush! The crop is very late, and due to the decision last year to ‘cut back’ under productive coffee bushes and replanting to replace old coffee bushes the crop will be small. Still, enough for us to process and roast for guests staying at the farm. Our Blue Mountain coffee is complimentary in all rooms and is served with meals.   Our coffee tour, also complimentary to guests, from bush to roaster is one of our most popular attractions. Brave the road and savor a unique experience at Lime Tree Farm.

 

Team Gillette

Team Gillette are a group of doctors and nurses from the USA, that for the last 10 years have visited Jamaica  to help disabled children. They donate equipment and medicine as well as their own vacation time. We were privileged to have some of them as guests at Lime Tree Farm. On behalf of Jamaica, as they say here – nuff respect and big up yourself.
