One of the highlights of Belle Mont Farm on Kittitian Hill is the farm, and luckily you don’t have to go searching for their bountiful garden.
You see, Belle Mont Farm doesn’t just have a farm, it is a farm.
An impressive array of fruits and vegetables fill the property including bananas, mangos, ginger, topi tambo (kind of like a small new potato), pineapples, lemongrass, papaya, sugar cane, pigeon peas, green figs, plums, citrus, melons, and more. Even the golf course, usually associated with manufactured greenery, is a fully organic, productive part of the farm.
But unlike most farms, this one is strategically designed to be both prolific and aesthetically pleasing. Broad-leafed banana plants wrap outdoor bathrooms in seclusion. Sugar cane stands tall creating green walls between cottages. Prickly pineapple plants add low accents to entryways. Everywhere you go, lush green surrounds you in tropical beauty that belies its practicality.
As produce ripens, it’s simply harvested from wherever it grows. Nothing is wasted. If the entire plant needs to be removed during harvesting, a replacement takes its place fresh from the on-property nursery.
This type of sustainable and fruitful landscaping is no easy feat—the planning, care, timing, and management must be perfect. The benefit to guests is a luxury landscape like nowhere in the Caribbean… And, of course, a cornucopia of fresh organic produce in every meal.
