Cotton Tree Lodge includes an organic farm and you are invited to explore the farm during your stay. Our fruit trees include mangoes, pineapple, star fruit, custard apple, soursop, bananas, papaya, plantain, orange, lime and grapefruit. Our garden grows a variety of salad greens, root vegetables like coco yam, cabbage, callaloo, cherry tomato, cucumber, sweet potatoes, and much more.
We raise free range chickens for eggs and meat, goats for milk, cheese, and meat; and are starting to raise pigs as we already cure our own bacon. We also source catfish and snook just downriver from the lodge.
In addition, we feature wild harvested edibles from the rainforest such as jippi jappa, cohune cabbage (heart of palm), and many others.
We try to utilize as much as we can from our own farm and nearby farms. The majority of what we serve is sourced from within 10 miles of the lodge. We are committed to maintaining a direct connection to where our food is coming from and how it is grown/raised.
