From Jive Highlands Resort, we decided to stop by at Bemwa Farm before going back to the city. I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about the farm as of late because of their strawberries. Some would compare the farm to La Presa in Baguio.
Like I’ve mentioned in my previous post, from Jive Higlands Resort, it took us more than 30 minutes of walking to get to Bemwa Farm. The farm is constantly flocked by guests who want to have a taste of the home grown strawberries. Not all places are blessed to be able to grow strawberries, this kind of fruit only grow in cold places such as Baguio.
It was a busy day at Bemwa farm during our visit. People were busy buying their organic products – the hottest product? well, you’ve guessed it right! – no other than the strawberries. Unfortunately though, we came out empty handed because according to their staff, as early as 5AM people were already lining up for the strawberries.
We were told that the extreme heat caused by El Niño affected the production of the fruit. The production is relatively low during summer season, so if you want to grab some home grown strawberries, you better be at the farm as early as possible.
Other products that the farm is selling are organic juice, lettuce, and chocolate. Price for each product is quite reasonable too.
