Introducing Whitfield Hall's...coffee plant nursery.
If you've traveled up into Jamaica's Blue Mountains to visit Whitfield Hall, you have probably tasted our delicious Blue Mountain coffee. Drinking a cup of coffee brewed at our coffee farm and hostel is an essential part of any Whitfield Hall experience. We can't think of anything that better compliments that gorgeous mountain scenery.

It's also certain you've spotted our coffee under cultivation -- those bushes growing in profusion on the property with the glossy, deep green leaves. But have you ever gotten a glimpse of the coffee nursery?

This is the area on the farm where coffee seedlings are cared for as they grow and become heartier specimens. It's exciting to look out on this sea of healthy seedlings and know that one day, they will be tall, hearty plants yielding a very precious harvest.
