Buhian Diversified Farm Starts Our Mindanao Organic Farms’ Tour

We have worked with the Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) a number of times with regards to Organic Farming.

They have brought us to Costales Farms in Laguna, Sagada, and Bacolod in Negros in the past few years. So we were excited to know that this time around, we are going south!

Exploring Misamis Oriental & Bukidnon

Misamis Oriental & Bukidnon

Misamis Oriental and Bukidnon are among the major agricultural production areas in Mindanao. It is home to some of the finest organic farms and agritourism sites in the region.

And with the new president coming from Mindanao as well, I think this is perfect timing. :)

Cagayan De Oro

Of course, we had to go through Laguindian Airport and Cagayan De Oro City while checking Weather Philippines #WeatherWiser

Buhian Diversified Farm in Misamis Oriental

As much as 4 out of the 5 farms we visited are based in Bukidnon, we are starting our organic farm tour with the farm from Misamis OrientalBuhian Diversified Farm.

Specifically located in Initao town, Buhian Farm is a 1.2 hectare coconut land dedicated to natural and organic farming and livestock poultry, vegetables, herbs, and mushroom. It is quite accessible from the provincial airport of Laguingingan, about 30 minutes or midway before reaching Cagayan De Oro City proper from the airport.
