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.
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.
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.
