Farm Update is happening right at Zen Farm, a 2.3-hectare land around 8min walk away from the beach.  Here my small family raises animals and tries to grow our own vegetables.

 

When I was working for a national farmer’s organization we had a staff development session where we drew the kind of life we want to have 5 years from then on. I sketched a small house, with all the satellite dish or antennae for all the latest technology. It’s the kind of life I’ve imagined, it’s the kind of life I am having now.

Products that we sell –

naturally-grown strawberry plants and runner, ranging from php150-250; pick-up or meet-up in Naga City.

mulberry and madre de agua (tricanthera) cuttings at php10, plus the cost of shipping anywhere in the Philippines.

You may reach me @ +63 921.2682245.

  1. YOU ARE MY IDOL!! I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
    BUT I GUESS IT IS NEVER TOO LATE… ORGANIC FARMING IS THE WAY TO GO…
    I LIKE TO RAISE NATIVE PIGS
    BUT MY HUSBAND PREFERS THE COMMERCIAL KIND.
    YOUR WEBSITE IS A GEM FOR PEOPLE LIKE ME.. DO YOU ALLOW VISITORS IN YOUR FARM? OR SUGGEST WAYS FOR US TO LEARN FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE?

  2. hi veni, my late father used to work in ragay and i never once get to go there. It’s kind of an ominous place (long story). I was planning on leaving you a private message but this is the best I could reach you. Anyway, have you heard of WHOOP? Its an international organization of organic farmers, I bet you should join. I’m planning to put up my own organic farm soon, still saving a bit and I would want to go home by the 23rd of Aug and would want to go there with my bf (i’m a backpacker by the way). I’ve been looking/googling around on how to get there but came up with none. 😦 Could you please give me some insights? Like a place to stay or camp maybe (by the beach, as long as its safe). We plan to go somewhere people don’t usually go then look around. I hope this gets to you. I took your contact, hope you don’t mind. I’m leaving my contact here too and I hope to hear from you soon. +63 9228493100

  5. Dear Veni, I really enjoyed reading your blog. I was especially attracted by your mulberry, they seemed so prolific and good to eat with their many fruits. They will be nice to grow- the fruits for humans to enjoy and the leaves for goat forage. I would like to order some cuttings – what would be the minimum order? And how do I pay? I don’t really need so many; I just need some to grow and multiply them later. Although I have my own, more of a hobby, farm (where my husband and I grow some coconuts and are nurturing native forest tree seedlings for biodiversity conservation), I plan to distribute the mulberry plants later to a community that I am assisting in goat raising. My contact number is 0920-5197061. Thank you so much, Carmelita.
