A Mountain Farmstay in Mindanao

Description

We welcome you to our farm on the foot of the mountain! It is a former poisoned banana plantation that we brought back to life. Today it's bustling with plants and animals. The skies are now filled with many different endemic birds during the day and battalions of fireflies at night. The jungle is full of lizards, wild cats, and reptiles, and the ponds are full of fish. Fruit trees and native trees, which do not bear any fruit of economic value, have been allowed to flourish and occupy 80% of the land. It is perfect if you are looking for something different and want to escape from the pace of the city.

We provide you with home-cooked meals out of locally sourced and primarily organic ingredients served with the most delicious biodynamic rice on a banana leaf plate. The menu constantly changes according to what is available. Sometimes, fresh organically-raised fish from the farm's fishpond, sometimes its organic banana heart in fresh coconut milk. We also serve roasted meat, salads, curries, soups, noodles, delicious pizzas out of our oven, freshly baked bread with sesame butter and wild honey.

You can help on the farm if you wish, make a hike, or relax at your cottage. Depending on which cottage you choose, you will have all the essential comforts except for air conditioning, television, and hot water.

About Me

Hi, my name is Teresita. This is the farm built by my family when we decided to leave behind the chaos of the city and make our own little sanctuary. We needed two decades to turn a logged down, chemically poisoned banana plantation back into a jungle teeming with life and healthy black soil. The land is blessed with freshwater springs, which allowed us to begin natural farming. The sound of a beautiful white water river echoes in the air, and one cannot put a price on the refreshing feeling of bathing in its cool water. Twenty years has allowed for life to return in abundance. I would love to invite you to stay in this peaceful tropical jungle paradise.
