The place is breathtaking. This is a private-owned, community-ran organic farm on the hills. This is also one of the largest dragon fruit plantations in the Philippines. If you have your own vehicle, it’s a 20 to 30-minute rough road ride from the Infanta-Marilaque Highway, about 1.5 to 2 hours travel from Antipolo Proper. However, you can only accommodate a few people at a time so you need to reserve before coming to the place.
Highlights are the plantation itself, farmers market every 2nd Saturday of every month (where you can buy organic pork, beef and many other organic produce, so better bring a cooler when you go there)
Free bath on the nearby crystal clear river and nearby falls which is a 2-hour walk on the hills.
… and cool fresh air (like in Tagaytay) and the food that they serve to visitors. They also offer lunch buffet for Php 300.
