It was a very sunny day when I, together with other bloggers visited Gourmet Farms in Cavite. A perfect day to roam around the place and discover new things and meet other people. I was really excited to visit the place since I am also into fitness and health. And this tour would really give me a lot of insights on healthy meals and organic farming which by the way, what I always wanted to have for my own and my familys’ consumption.
The organic farm is located in Km. 52 Aguinaldo HIghway, Silang, Cavite. If you have Waze installed in your phone you can easily find your way going there. It is just along the highway so you will not miss it.
Upon arrival, we were given this cold drink which is the Gourmet Farms cafe’s Signature Lemonade. This is sold for only Php85. Believe me it taste REAAAAAALLY GOOOOOOD! I love how strong the flavor was and how it burst into my palate. It was so good that me and my fiance’ went back for it when we visited Tagaytay last week. THUMBS UP!
After resting a bit, we were toured around the farms vicinity starting with the farm itself where they raise different kind of organic crops and herbs including coffee, lettuce, ashitaba, basil and many more.
Look! farmers resting under the trees. getting ready to plow the fields.
In the middle of our farm tour, we were led to a retreat place inside the farm named St. Joseph’s Sanctuary. Shhhhhh… Noisy people are not allowed inside since it is a place for reflection, soul searching, and mind and soul rejuvenation. For more information about St. Joseph’s Sanctuary, please contact Gourmet Farms.
Back to our farm tour. Since it is an organic farm, they uses natural compost (leaves, barks of trees etc) and practice vermiculture to nourish the soil. The farm never uses chemical fertilizers to kill the insects and other pest luring to their crops.
The farm strive for environmental sustainability by implementing programs that respect nature,because they want to help preserve the environment for the future generations. The farm practices the “6 R’s”: Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Rethink. Recover. Restore.
After the farm tour, we headed back to the farm’s restaurant for lunch. YUMMY!
