"All the marvels of nature are glimpses of His divine power and expressions of His Love." Elder M. Russell Ballard
Gabby's Farm in its raw state truly captivated our senses. To us, it is nature's best. With breathtaking views of the city and the lush forests, we were truly awed by the place at first sight.

WHAT WE HARVEST
Gabby's Farm has three main produce - cacao, longkong lanzones and black pepper. Black pepper (paniyur) vines are all over the farm and we are already enjoying our harvest at this time.
Gabby's Farm is also home to fruit trees like bananas, papaya, rambutan, guyabano, bayabas and some rare to find local fruits such as chesa, pajo and balimbing. We also have a few exotic fruits such as latexless langka, seedless atis, dragon fruit, super avocado, etc. We have started harvesting the fruits of some of the trees.
Organic vegetables on our table comes directly from the farm - okra, sitao, sili, upo, patola, kamias, gabi, kamote and a lot more. The volume of our harvest for vegetables is quite limited, just enough for consumption and not for volume sale.
Do a chicken call "cluck cluck" and you'd be surprised how many native chickens will come to you expecting to be fed.
THE BAHAY KUBO
Our bahay kubo is very much like a traditional bahay kubo . It was built using light materials such as bamboo and anahaw which can provide a cooling comfort for humid days. Some materials are also recycled or made from scrap.
The ground floor is an open area similar to the "silong" in olden days but relatively more convenient as you do not have to bow down to avoid hitting your head in the low ceiling. The second floor is similar to the "bulwagan" and can be used for receiving guests, dining and sleeping.
Our farm is not your typical farm where you can see the gardens and trees on a plain. Gabby's farm is unique since it is located on a hill . Free yourselves from the chaotic noise and savor our very peaceful and relaxing ambiance. The rustling of the leaves by the cool wind will surely refresh your soul.
On a summer's day, the view is as clear as the sky. Come the Christmas season, nature gives you a stunning sea of clouds.
Pick, Harvest & Pay
Our farm's main harvest, cacaos, take time to grow just like all the good things in life. And they need to be processed to transform into chocolates.
But we have other fresh harvests that will interest you and will be available for pick, harvest and pay in the near future like lanzones, lemons, lettuce, and cranberries.
