Have an amazing farming experience for only 300 pesos!
Welcome to Holy Carabao Holistic Farm!
About an hour away from Manila, this serene place is located near Acacia Waldorf School in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
Founded more than a decade ago by two moms, Melanie Go and Hindy Weber, the farm continues to live up to its mission. It aims to grow and provide healthy and whole foods for Filipino families. The farm also conducts different lectures and workshops to spread awareness on proper farming techniques, nature conservation and overall wellness.
I heard about this place through my sister. She planned the farm visit together with the family so that her two-year old toddler can have first-hand experience on farm life and of course to see real farm animals (her favorite!)
When we arrived at the farm, we proceeded first to the Farm Shed Café and ordered some food and drinks.
The café also serves as the meeting place for those who want to do the farm tour. Here, you can read books, play board games or have your kids draw and color to pass some time.
Here are some of the things to do during your visit (P300/person):
• Breathe in the fresh air
• Feed and interact with the farm animals
• Learn about organic farming and its benefits
• Chill and dine the healthy way at The Farm Shed Café
• Buy organically grown products:
~ Chemical-free Veggies & Fruits
~ Grass-fed Beef & Pork
~ Pasture-raised Poultry & Eggs
~ Non-GMO Rice & Grains
~ Cold-pressed Juices & Elixirs
~ Hormone-free Milk
~ Wild Honey & Raw Sugar
~ Gluten-free Bread & Cookies
~ Artisanal Ice Cream
~ Artisanal Cheese & Chocolate
~ Culinary & Medicinal Herbs
~ Fermented Foods, Drinks & Condiments

• Unlimited rides on a swing zipline (my favorite part of the tour!)
How to get to the farm:
Holy Carabao Farm and The Farm Shed Café are located in the area of Acacia Waldorf School, an exclusive private school. The most convenient way to reach the farm is by using a private vehicle. If you are using waze, set the destination to The Farm Shed Café/Acacia Waldorf School. Take SLEX, then ETON exit. Follow the road towards Sta. Rosa, making your way towards Nuvali. Before you get to Nuvali Solenad, there is a huge Sta. Elena City sign on the left (right across Jollibee). Turn left at the sign and proceed towards Georgia Club / Promenade / Belle Reve. Go straight until you see a blue guard house. Inform the guard on duty that you are going to Acacia Waldorf School. Make a right at the rotunda then go straight for about 2 kilometers. The farm will be on the left side of the road, right beside the school. There are parking spaces available inside the school parking lot.
