Bluegum Limes is a small operation on a bushland property at Mooneba 15 kilometres west of Kempsey in the Macleay Valley on the Mid North Coast.
We are at the Newcastle Farmers Market on a monthly basis. We grow mainly lime trees and make products that are lime-based.
Some of our other fruit trees on Bluegum Limes Farm include mandarin, orange, grapefruit, cumquat, guava and Davidson plum. The trees are sprayed only with white oil to control scale and sooty mould. Before harvesting nothing else is touching the fruit except sunshine and rain.
Most of the fruits are juiced to make Lime Cordial. The other cordials made by Bluegum Limes have a small percentage of lime added to provide for an appealing and interesting blend.
Some of our other product range includes:
Lime Dipping Sauce for Asian foods
Lime Drizzle for salads
As well as fresh fruit for sale
LimeSquash drinks are made at the market using our lime cordial base.
