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.
One drink you must try when you’re at Lime Tree Farm is the delicious trendy new drink ‘Cascara’ or coffee cherry tea (not to be confused with ‘ cascara segrada’.) The Blue Mountain coffee skin is removed washed and sun dried and then served as a hot or cold tea, with honey, ginger, cinnamon or nutmeg. A sweet refreshing drink with very little caffeine!
Finally finished the fireplace! One old cement mixer drum, 64 separate metal plates, 1020 rivets – and a very sore hand! After a day bird watching or hiking in the Blue Mountains enjoy a cup of Blue Mountain coffee in front of the fire on those ‘cooler’ evenings.
