If we are to follow our original itinerary, we are supposed to visit the Burnham Park followed by Camp John Hay but it didn’t push thru. The weather is seemingly not cooperating with us that time. So we headed to our next destination which is the Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad, Benguet. Well, technically, it is not in Baguio but it is more or less 30 minutes away from Baguio City and is definitely worth a visit.
Before getting into the farm, here’s what I tried first. I saw someone selling Strawberry ice cream and so I gave this refreshing dessert a shot!
Definitely one of the best Strawberry Ice cream I have ever tasted!I can say that the Strawberry Farm is one of my most favorite parts of our Baguio trip because this is my first time to witness an actual Strawberry farm. Because you know, the only time I saw a farm filled with strawberries is thru Farmville LOL.I’m not sure how many hectares does the entire farm covers but I learned that the land is not just owned by a single person but it is more like a collection of different farms adjacent to each other.Today, it is no longer just a strawberry farm but you can also see a lot of other vegetables and ornamental plants like Lettuce, cabbages and more.These signs will welcome you when you entered the farm. It is also important to note that there is NO entrance free going to the farm but if you want to pick strawberries, you can do so by paying Php450. They will provide you a basket for you to fill in.As much as I want to experience Strawberry picking, the frugal me decided not to. I saw a bunch of stores outside the farm selling the same amount of strawberries yet half the price of the strawberry picking fee.Lettuce and Stawberry fieldsThese Sunflowers are even taller than meStrawberries ♥I personally like this portion of the farm!Beware “Carrot Man” , Lettuce Man is here!I wasn’t able to see his face so let’s just all leave it a mystery hahaI bought some lettuce outside too!
