Belmont Estate is a lovely jaunt into the country’s agritourism mecca and the history and tradition of spice and chocolate on the island. There are a few components of the estate. For starters, it’s a working farm with loads of produce and gardens. Second, located in St Patrick, about an hour from St. George, this is a nice escape into the countryside, away from the sea and larger towns.
Belmont Estate is a true 17th century plantation, and is still operational. Guests can tour the organic farm, gardens, museum, and cocoa processing facilities that might even remind some of the Lucy and Ethel scene with grape crushing; just think cocoa bean rotating instead!
There is a large, treehouse-esque restaurant serving local Grenadian cuisine, much of it picked from the very gardens onsite. There is also a goat dairy farm, petting farm, conference room, gift shop, cafÃ©, produce shop, credit union and craft market.
Try and get a table by edge of the restaurant for incredible views of the gardens. There is often live music at the restaurant as well, and seating can accommodate large parties.
Belmont Estates is open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday through Friday.
