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?
Then this is exactly right place for you.
At our farm, we connect natural resources, old crafts, helping people and sustainability.
- sustainable farm in beautiful nature in the Philippines
- work for local men and women
- safe place for tourists also
- 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
- our little girls will be able to grow together, and we can live like complete family
We are fulfilling all this step by step.
We have already purchased OUR LAND and OWN BOAT.
In the near future we will buy and prepare
- vegetable and fruits
- facilities for tourists
This means a successful start to the 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 a farm 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's a spring 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, crafts and customs
- 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 will 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…
We will plant mainly local plants such as beans, sayote, tomatoes, pechay, sweet potatoes... trees like mango, bananas, coconut or tamarind.
Big help in the farm will be native carabao (water bull), and we will raise also native cows, horses and goats. Next to it we will have pigs, chickens and rabbits for meat.
We started working on our dream more than a year ago. Shortly before the outbreak of the pandemic, we bought a great car in the Philippines and wanted to rent it. Unfortunately, a pandemic started out, so we are paying for car leasing and all the expenses from our savings.
We firmly hope that this will change soon because we simply will not give up .
THE ICING ON THE CAKE
In order to achieve true independence and self-sufficiency, we plan to open a carinderia in Olongapo.
It is basically a Filipino form of bistro, where we want to offer not only ordinary local dishes, but also here and there something from European cuisine.
And the plan we have from the very beginning, is to buy a fishing boat that will not be only for fishing but it will also serve to tourists.
Thanks to local boats, we will be able to bring fish to the carinderia and to the farm, and proceeds from tourist activities will continue to investments to 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 house, 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.
