  1. Very catchy name! I love the idea that they can accommodate guests. It’s the best way of staying close to nature. This is a perfect place to visit with the whole family.

  2. Ooh, their name got me! This place seems astounding. I would like to visit this place someday, I’ve never been to a vegetable farm, to be honest! Also, great job for capturing the beauty of this place. Your photos are amazing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I agree with you, Aica. I was caught by the name of the farm. When i saw the title, i just read it as is. SaVE. Supporting the objective of putting up this farm is a huge and good deed. By the looks of it, it seems to be well maintained. It’s a nice way to get close to nature.

  3. Thank you for the clarification about the pronunciation! I was not sure. I don’t have much experience with agritourism, having just visited one farm in New York State. But this farm looks beautiful and I love the food pictures. I hope to go here someday!

  4. This is a very beautiful & well maintained farm! A must visit to have a nice holiday. You are so lucky to have visited this place ๐Ÿ™‚ I am saving your post & I do wish to visit it personally:) cheers, SiennyLovesDrawing

  5. Your photos look stunning! Makes one want to book a trip right away to that destination. I think it would be a good place for family bonding or field trip for students. I like visiting these kinds of places with my kids.

  6. This is a perfect place to just relax and reconnect with nature! Too bad I haven’t found a place like this in the Philippines if ever I did I will definitely visit it. People nowadays only think of the luxurious hotel when planning a trip, but what they don’t know is that it’s actually more relaxing to stay in a place like this. Thumbs up for this post & your photos!

  7. Never been here before but I am loving this place already! I also love nature trips and this place looks like the perfect idyllic retreat for those who want to get closer to nature. Also, you can feed guinea pigs! I have a guinea pig so this made me more intrigued about this place.

  8. Hahaha!!! To begin with you got me at the clarification of SAVE!!! The cabbage looks incredible, I can’t remember the last time I saw such a farm fresh cabbage!!! I guess when you’re staying in such a place, AC and TV is just not required!!!
