How to Get to Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad

Going to Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad Benguet by Commuters

Located at: La Trinidad Benguet. From the City Terminal of Baguio, look for a jeepney bound to Bayugan route. Fare is only Php 12 pesos on a jeepney bound to La Trinidad Strawberry Farm which is located infront of Baguio City Hall stairs. Ask the driver to drop you at the Strawberry Farm. From the crossing of the farm, it's a short walk from the highway going to the entrance of the farm. Travel time is about 30 minutes away from the City Proper. Note: don't go beyond the public market and Benguet Provincial Capitol, that will be your landmark that you already passed the Strawberry Farm. If you have an own car, don't worry because they have a huge parking area for the customer. No entrance fee at the farm. Good to know. Happy Trip  - Bisayang Manlalakbay 

Strawberry Farm at La Trinidad Benguet 2013

La Trinidad in Benguet - Home for Strawberry, Baguio's neighboring town and about 30 minutes away from the city proper. First you must registered to their information counter. For a backpacker like me, we left our big backpack and other things in the cashier area. So, I'am ready to picked strawberry on this farm. We assisted by the local farmer, I borrowed rattan hat and go ahead. It is nice to see those strawberries springing from it's leaves. This is the main industry of the people in La Trinidad and one major production of the strawberry in the country. The strawberry picking season is from November to May as per local farmer and the best time to go is during morning, when there's not a lot of people and tourist yet within the area of the farm. Did you know that? This strawberry fruit is the only fruit with seeds on the outside. Picking your own strawberries in the farm is an awesome experience when traveling this place. Aside from fresh strawberry, you can also try their strawberry jam, honey, ube jam, orange jam and many more. See separate post on How to Get to Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad Benguet. Happy Trip Everyone. Enjoy!

Vegetable & Flower Farm in La Trinidad, Benguet

My friend and I decided to drop off at La Trninidad, Benguet. When we arrived to their market, I immediately ask the vendor where could we buy some affordable veggies within the area. He advise us to check out La Trinidad Plantation/ Field which is located near the Benguet State University (commonly known as "The Strawberry Farm Field" which you can buy fresh and affordable vegetables like lettuce, cabbage, onions, garlic and many more. There is no entrance fee in the area. The weather is cool and sunny when we arrived here around 10 o'clock in the morning. The price is double versus when you buy at their public market about Php 200-300 pesos per kilo depending on the type of vegetables and quality.  But I think is reasonable enough because you choose the best crop you could get. It's already a one stop shop for vegetables and flowers here. All fresh and organic as well. Happy Trip Everyone :-)

Mountain Ranges around the Province of Benguet

Hello Benguet! A getaway to Mount Pulag! These mountain in Benguet offer scenic views of the lowlands area, great terraces and other parts of the province. As per tourism organization, Benguet is the roof of Northern Luzon, which is considered as a vegetable capital of the Philippines. During our bus ride going to Baguio, I saw a lot of vegetable plantation along the road, big trees, wide fruit plantation and different varities of cabbage. This area has a good view of vegetable terraces and can only observed when traveling the place.  If your a mountaineer, trekker or traveler, you can set a hike to their mountain and valley which I considered a breathtaking and good panoramic view of the whole province. This photo is taken from the bus bound to our next destination. Check out my next post about La Trinidad Benguet Strawberry Farm. Thanks

We only stopped their about 30 minutes and proceed to Baguio City. We got a chance to drop off their public market as well and buy some foods and drinks, I actually saw this orange-round shape fruit and take some photo on it. The price is so cheap, about Php30 pesos per kilo. This fruit is grown in a high temperature, climate and cultivated soil. The people are too warm and hospitable.
