Taste of Jamaica Farm Cookout
Leave Ocho Rios and the crowded city tours behind as you travel into the Jamaican countryside to see a side of the island that most visitors miss.
You and your small group will journey through Fern Gully to Spice Mountain, passing through small villages along the way. As you reach the top of the hill you will be rewarded with beautiful views of the ocean and Ocho Rios.
Continue into the countryside to an organic farm on this eco-friendly tour with its indigenous fruit trees, herbs, and spices, and be introduced to the special flavors that Jamaica is famous for. Enjoy a Jamaican cookout and learn how to make authentic Jamaican Jerk Chicken. Pluck a pea off the vine, put your hands in the warm soil, and plant something, or even harvest some veggies for your salad as you learn about organic agriculture from your guides.
You can sample fruits in season, or take a bite of sweet, sweet sugarcane. Take a walk through a coffee farm while your tour guide talks about the techniques of coffee farming. This eye-opening tour features an authentic Jamaican lunch that encapsulates local flavors and reminds you of what "real" food tastes like. Chickens, birds, and rabbits are all found on the farm, which is home to one of the largest collections of medical and healing herbs in Jamaica. From friendly farm animals to incredible plants like Moringa and Neem, you'll discover something new to learn with each visit.
Afterward, relax in the garden and take in the sweeping views of Jamaica's north coast and the beauty of the hills. Listen to the birds sing and engage your senses with the herbs, spices, fruits, birds, flowers, and ornamentals while sampling the world-renowned Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee (available to purchase). Children and adults can interact with farm animals such as native chickens and rabbits. Keep your eyes peeled for birds and seasonal butterflies that visit the farm.
