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.

 

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 ‘.

 

 

Ants in the biscuits

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!

New hope for our road.

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.

 

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.
