Are you attracted by a holiday in an exotic country?
Would you like to know someone you can rely on
in that country?
You don't want to use a travel agency,
but you might like help and advice for start?
You want to enjoy the exotic in its pure form,
but don't want to lose a bit of your standard?
This is the right place for you.
At our farm, we connect natural resources, old crafts, helping people and sustainability.
- Camping in the beautiful Philippine countryside
- Sustainable farm with animals and plants
- Safe place for tourists and locals
- Near to beaches, islands, waterfalls, coves…
- Great place to relax, full of hidden places
- we will provide you to see the real life in the Philippines
- you will have a place in an exotic paradise, where you are always welcome
- you will enjoy staying in nature in the local style
We are building all this step by step
we already have LAND, BOAT (bangka), COTTAGES…
In the near future we will acquire and arrange:
- vegetable and fruits
- better facilities for tourists
- safe camping areas
This means a successful start for the camp, farm, and the first jobs to the locals.
We combine Filipino exoticism, friendliness and hospitality with a bit of the European standard.
WHERE IS IT HAPPENING?
We are building our paradise in the Zambales area on the Luzon island, which is the largest island in the Philippines.
We are close to the sea, not far from fish and swimming, but inland enough to successfully raise animals and grow vegetables and fruits.
There are two springs on the property, so we don’t have to drill a well and use groundwater right away.
By the way, the huge advantage of the Philippines is that you can grow crops here almost all year round .
LITTLE MORE ABOUT THE FARM
The space we create is
- farm with animals, vegetables and fruit trees
- a landmark for tourists, a place to relax, and meeting local culture
- community place for locals, not just the neighborhood
It is a place where we all can meet, relax, work, learn about the world and the neighborhood, and moc for support.
We believe that we will be able to create a pleasant and beneficial space for everyone who visits us.
We have nipa huts ready for tourists, so you'll be able to enjoy the old type of accommodation, but with a little bit of modern touch, like a bathroom…
Or you can sleep in your or our tent.
We grow mostly local plants such as beans, melons, sayote, tomatoes, pechay, sweet potatoes… trees such as calamansi, bananas, coconuts, moringa or tamarind.
And we also have pigs, chickens and rabbits .
We started working on our dream more than two years ago. Shortly before the pandemic broke out, we bought a great car in the Philippines and rented it. Unfortunately, a pandemic broke out, so we paid the car lease and all the expenses from our savings.
Eventually, someone crashed our car, and we lost it completely.
We are not giving up on our dream, and we are already on the way to fulfilling it.
We got a couple of great investors who helped us with the first big step.
In order to achieve true independence and self-sufficiency, we have already opened a bistro in Castillejos, where we currently live. In our bistro we offer not only common local dishes, but also a selection of European cuisine, and we mix local flavors with those of the European ..
And the plan we have from the very beginning, to buy a fishing boat that will also serve tourists, finally closes the whole circle. We have already bought the ship, but now it is undergoing overhaul, and after the rainy season we may be finally sailing. Thanks to local boats, we will be able to bring fish to the bistro and the farm, and we will be able to continue to invest the proceeds from tourist activities in the entire cycle.
And the circle closes.
As we mention above, our plan is to provide livelihoods for locals who are severely short of jobs and whose families are often on the brink of real poverty.
According to statistics, almost 86% of the Philippine population live in poverty.
Unfortunately, many locals cannot afford to have their children study even in high school. This is either because of the tuition fee or simply because they need more hands to work and therefore some income.
With 1 boat we can employ 2 fishermen, 4 helpers, and thanks to us, the salesman also earns in the market.
With 1 carinderia we can provide sustenance for at least 2 chefs and 2 helpers.
In the farm we find work for at least 2 helpers with the normal operation of the camp and farm, accommodation for tourists, and basic care for fruits and vegetables. We will also use at least 2 helpers for harder work and animal care.
In the beginning, we will bring work to at least 14 people who will not have to worry about their family and children.
But we will make our plans allways bigger.
At the moment we already have one active employee - a chef in our bistro, who thanks to this work can feed his wife and 4 children.
When needed, we also have a helper taking care of our little Bella Adela. For now, this is an easy brigade, and we plan that in time it will be a regular cooperation.
