Break-away from the Usual Tagaytay Habit at Yoki's Farm


I have been feeling a tad disgruntled with my husband since Valentines Day.

However, I tried to ignore what I've been feeling and focused on my plan for a quick get-away to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary.  So, I pledged a little budget for this, but made sure I wasn't breaking the bank.


Here's how my plan went.

Though I did plan for a Tagaytay stay-cation, which have been an annual thing for us, I bought a hotel accommodation at the travel expo for Escala Tagaytay at an affordable soft-opening promo package.

Yey!

For dinner, he allowed me to pick the resto and paid for it and I chose CHARITO by Bag of Beans.

We just had a quick dinner and bought some stuff in grocery for late-night snacking.  We dozed off early and well, woke up late.

After a hefty b-fast at the hotel's cafe, we checked out of the hotel and googled for Yoki's Farm.

While doing that my husband was like "what is this woman up to now!" Then we both agreed to stop by Mahogany Market to buy fruit-bearing plants and herbs and have Bulalo for lunch.

Then off we followed Google Map for our next and last destination before going home.

Google's direction was easy to follow until we reached the mark and Yoki's Farm was not in sight, which was supposed to be in the corner of the street. There was a street on the left so we took it to look for the farm, and ended up on a dead end, it was the farm after all.

After turning back around from where we came from we just stopped and asked some locals passing by and what do you know, we were just in front of the huge gate of the farm.

It took as some minutes of waiting until there was the staff to open the gate for us.

You don't need to call for a reservation  but take note that they are closed during lunch, that's 12 pm to  1 pm.  So, walk in is allowed for a day-tour with an entrance fee of P 150 for a guided tour around the farm premise.


Through the gate you need to park the car on the right lot after a building.

And on the left, or on foot at the parking slots, is the astounding view of the covered hall with a gigantic laughing Buddha.

We met our tour guide here and walked our way towards their orchid farm.


Not too long walk is the building where they teach school kids and tourists about Hydro ponic, their organic means of growing their lettuce and Chinese kangkong.  This is also supposed to be the cafeteria where they serve refreshments and tourists can order food.


Their lecture materials for hydroponics planting.





Aside from buying organic vegetables, I was so interested in acquiring a mulberry plant which they actually breed and sell.





They sell all these birds and they also have iguanas.


Out last stop was back at the huge covered hall and it was actually a warehouse full of the owner's collections.






According to the farm manager, their boss who passed away three years ago left the farm and all these collections to his wife and kids.

He hoarded so much antiques, from statues to brass arts to whatnot. Both here and abroad and cared less of the price.  As long as he got his eye on it, he would buy it, no matter what.  Not until the owner passed away did his wife knew about the rest of his massive collection left hidden in this warehouse, without even naming and organizing his collection.
