My Lunch Extravaganza at Sonrisa Farm Bicol


It's been a while since I last, you know, visited a farm and get my hands dirty with some organic adventures. This time, I went to Bicol, a land in the Southernmost part of the Philippines that is rich in undeniably spicy treats and nuts, (I know what you're thinking but!!!) specifically Pili nuts.



We'll get into that in my future blogs. Let's first set your expectations by saying that this will be a series of posts about my views on the organic farms that we visited in Bicolandia. Not that I'm an expert when it comes to organic farming and stuff, but I'm the kind of person who has a heart for nature. You know that if you have been reading my blog haha!



It was almost an hour airplane ride from Manila to Naga, Bicol. We arrived at about 11 in the morning where we (my co-bloggers) are treated with some local delicacies. We spent our lunch at a 3.5-hectare farm called Sonrisa Farm that according to the owner means smile. I remember it was the most colorful plate I ever had for lunch.



There are vegetables, flowers, meat that I no longer care about the world, I just know I need to eat. To be honest, I wasn't able to get all the names of the dishes served because it all looks pretty! LOL!



The farm for me is ideal for large and intimate gatherings. It offers a variety of venue, local vegetables, indigenous plants, high-value crops, and naturally grown livestock - free from pesticides and synthetic feeds, that can be enjoyed by all ages.



For 250 Pesos, you get to tour the whole farm with simple yet delectable snacks. Before I forget, they also have stingless, YES! STINGLESS Bees and a butterfly house that is worth seeing.




Your eyes will surely feast with different kinds of fruit bearing trees and vegetables that are just within reach. The tour is very educational, especially if you use to live in the city and wanted to have your own maybe "pot" farm? I don't know about you, but I'm thinking of having one. Haha!
