    Descripción

    My name is Jade. I have worked in the Jamaican music industry for the past 25 years, Seven years ago I took over my dads 35 acre farm in Linstead Jamaica, Four years prior my dad was killed in a robbery at his business place. It was tragic and left an enormous void in my family's life. It's just impossible to recover from such a tragedy. My journey has been a bitter-sweet one. I absolutely love my farm and I have learnt to deal with all the challenges it comes with. I am the proud mom of four (4) beautiful children. My mom and I are super close and I pretty much share all my ideas with her, and she in return is always willing to add her council and advise. The farm offers educational-fun tours to children of all ages. Our current stage of expansion will see us launching our tourist destination hopefully in August of 2020. This has been a dream for the past 7 years so I am really excited to get there. The project will allow tourists to Jamaica to visit our farm to see a real-life Jamaican farm in operation. Our gift shop will sell only things made from the farm or on the farm. These will include coconut oil, honey and craft.

    WOW!!! This project will offer a true Jamaican experience in a real way.
    There is not much to see in the small rural town of Linstead although it a bustling town with a very famous outdoor food market (Linstead Market), however Ocho Rios and Hellshire where beautiful beaches are is just a hour away and public transportation can be easily accessed. For clubbing, nightlife, shopping and great restaurants then Kingston city is the place and that's only 45 minutes away.
