One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”
“I had rather be on my farm than be emperor of the world.”
Once a local farm where Belizeans had cultivated corn, beans, and watermelon, Table Rock’s current farm was re-developed after having been abandoned for over a decade. Now a dedicated fruit farm, our major crop is Valencia Oranges. Also growing on the farm are several varieties of mangoes, coconuts, avocadoes, limes, grapefruit, tangerines, breadfruit, sapodilla (chico sapote), starfruit (carambola), craboo, soursop (guanábana), bananas, plantains, guava, chaya (a local green favored by the Maya), and loads of other seasonal veggies and fresh herbs. Visit our flower and plant nursery where we grow the tropicals that are used to decorate and landscape the lodge. The farm is home to a small herd of donkeys, a fluffle of rabbit, and a pair of wily sheep that we raise as pets, as well as a large flock of laying hens that supply us with the eggs used in our restaurant. All of our farm animals receive food scraps from the lodge kitchen to supplement their diets and to aid in our recycling and waste reduction efforts. We encourage you to take a walk around the farm, pet and feed the animals, and help yourself to any of our tropical fruits—our only rule is that you eat what you pick.
