Green Castle Estate is an ecologically rich and beautiful property of 1600 acres on the North Coast of Jamaica between the Blue Mountains and the Caribbean Sea. Green Castle Estate has a rich history of land use and culture dating back from the indigenous Tainos who inhabited the site 1000 years ago, through 300 years ago as a prominent plantation of sugarcane and bananas. The modern estate of today is one of the largest orchid and organic farms in the Caribbean.
The land, its history and the many assets of the Estate are also home to the newly formed Greencastle Tropical Study Center. The center was formed to make a difference in the lives of the poor, rural communities that surround it, to draw researchers and students from Jamaica and abroad to study the land use and its effects on the ecosystems and people that surround the Estate, and to create remarkable and educational eco-experiences for visitors, whether they come for a dip in the sea, a tour of the farm or a week relaxing at the beautiful Estate House.
The Green Castle Orchids and Organics Tour is an opportunity to visit the beautiful Jamaican countryside, learn about its vibrant history and experience a warm Jamaican welcome. Their vision is to operate a agriculture and eco-tourism enterprises within the context of a research station, encouraging interaction among all of our visitors and staff.
Come and be a part of a wonderful experience. Green Castle seek researchers, students and guests from near and far that wish to enjoy the land, its people and culture, while fostering greater understanding of the connectedness that is woven through the land, people and time.
