Large deposits of peace and quiet in the Blue Mountains.

By

Giving the figures provided by the tourist board for visitors to Jamaica ( almost entirely cruise ships and all inclusive hotels), we at Lime Tree calculate that less than 0.1% of tourists to the island make it to the Blue Mountains. Meaning ther are huge deposits of peace and quiet going unused. The Blue Mountains are one of the most natural, unspoiled and beautiful regions of Jamaica, be adventurous, treat yourself to the Blue Mountain experience.

 

Does what it says on the can. The unspoiled Blue Mountains, Jamaica

By

Following a recent conversation with a good friend in the industry over concerns regarding the validity and authenticity of property photos and reviews we are able to set the record straight. All photographs and images of Lime Tree Farm on our website are true and correct depictions of the property- the place really is that unspoiled and beautiful. Another area of concern is the use of spurious guest reviews. All our guest reviews are genuine and we are able to verify with signed reviews in our guest book kept on the property. Come see for yourselves, if you feel cheated or deceived we will reimburse.

 

 

 

Big Blue Landrover tour of the Blue Mountains

By

We always thought our old 1994 Landrover Defender, though very well suited to the terrain and bad roads here in the Blue Mountains, was simply noisey, hot and not ‘overcomfortable’. Mostly used to tranfer guests from Mavis Bank coffee factory to the farm, it appears, Big Blue is a big hit with guests. Now deemed (by me mostly) a classic, we are offering the Big Blue experience. Driving from the Lime Tree Farm to Cinchona Botanical Gardens or to Abbey Green and returning via Radnor – aproximately -4 hours. A lot of Landrovers are now in captivity in the cities and suburbs. This is a chance to experience a Landrover in the wild – as was intended by the designer.

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.

 

Big thanks

By

To all our adventurous guests who went that extra mile to visit us at Lime Tree during 2018/19 season.

We well know it requires more than a little extra effort to reach Lime Tree Farm. The poor condition of our road has always been a challenge for guests, though to look at it another way – the road is the reason our community and surrounding area is so unspoilt.

So, we would like to thank all our guests for, literally and metaphorically ‘going that extra mile’. As they say in Jamaica – ‘Nuff respect, big up yourself ‘.
