Ants in the biscuits

By

This is me the morning after arriving at Lime Tree Farm for the first time, the year is 1993. My geographical knowledge was zero, I booked a flight from Miami to – Montego Bay, wrong end of the island! I hired a small motorcycle in Negril and had an ‘ interesting’ ride to the Blue Mountains. I believe everything happens for a reason, and looking back now with the standard issue rose tinted glasses, I now realise it was the first piece of the gigantic puzzle that has become the Lime Tree Farm experience which has dominated our lives for 26 years. Little by little it is all starting to make sense – to me anyway. PS The ride back to Negril was equally  ‘ interesting’.

 

Looking good on the bush.

It’s that time of year again, the coffee is ripening on the bush and we have started picking. The crop looks good, fingers crossed that we get a fair price for it and no last minute farming type disasters. This is our busiest time of year, along with the crop we host a lot of guests. A coffee tour – bush to roaster is one of our most popular attractions and is complimentary to guests.

 

Hiking in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica

By

Again, following a slight confusion during an email correspondence we feel it necessary to clarify another point re ‘ local guided hikes’.

We offer complimentary guided hikes of the trails close to Lime Tree Farm. They are between 1 and 2 hours long and are amongst the most beautiful and remote in the Blue Mountains. The 3 most popular are – Farm view, Governers Bench and Bloxburgh trails. The hikes depart the farm at 10am and 3pm.

We also offer ( at additional cost) excursion hikes to Blue Mountain peak and Cinchona.

Trusting this clears things up.

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.

 

 

 

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.

 

New tings a gwaan fi 2018/19

By

Lime Tree Farm will shortly have a brand new website for the 2018/19 tourist season. We are making a number of changes to the property also.
Two new areas will be available to guests, Breezy Hollow (designed by my wife Tifony) and the yet to be named (by a guest?) large patio area below ‘Nyaam Inna ya’.
We are also introducing new options for budget travellers to Jamaica. As they say – watch this space.
