Allow me to introduce our family farm in the Philippines. We started our farm as a weekend place for our family to go. A place to enjoy the rural environment after a busy week in urban life setting. Then our farm organically evolved into what it is now, a family farm where we also practice agritourism; to show and share the joy we experienced while living in small family farm setting.

We maintain residence both in USA and Philippines. If I am in the Philippines, I love hosting farm to table event and other agriculinary events. My husband and I support the Slow Food movement; and we enjoy having convivial meals with our farm guests. If fate would have it - we might even meet personally! If we are not available - our farm staff family will be around to welcome and assist you on your farmstay.

Meanwhile, we thought that it is a good idea to open our family farm for other families or individuals who live in the urban city and enjoy the rural life even for a day or a weekend. It is also an option for international travelers who prefer to experience, enjoy and discover the rural communities of the Philippines.

For Helpx’ers community, we have established Helpx’ers rate. It’s a minimal charge of $15/day to cover cost of hosting with very casual work exchange arrangement. We understand how stressing it can be, to come from a long haul travel and feel the obligation to work, and care for yourself. So the rate will allow you to enjoy your stay, eat with us, join us in our family farm work activities and events, and experience rural Philippines! Drop us a note, as part of the Helpx community we are flexible and open to other kind of arrangements. If you are a student and in your gap years, send us an email and we can offer another volunteer options.

We have decent room accommodation; and if you prefer to camp out, we have camping tents as well! We have laundry facility and kitchen in the farm. We have farm staff who can help guide you explore the local community if you wish. Gratuity to their help and hospitality is appreciated but not required.

Come and visit, we love to welcome you! In the Philippines, we want you to experience our “it’s more fun in the Philippines” travel campaign.
