What Is Farm Ridge by Desmond Farm?
Farm Ridge by Desmond Farm is an agriculture and farm tourism site standing and blossoming in the midst of Pantabangan, a first-class municipality in the province of Nueva Ecija. It all started with a vision --- to promote and showcase agriculture (cacao farming/ organic farming) and farm tourism.
Farm Ridge is managed and operated by Desmond Farm and Partners Inc. (DFPI). DFPI is a corporation registered in the Philippines that upbuilds the countryside into cacao farms and aims to produce high-quality cacao beans. It is also now into organic farming or a farming technique that promotes the cultivation of plants in natural ways, involving the use of biological materials and avoiding synthetic substances to maintain soil fertility and ecological balance.
DFPI is comprised of various stakeholders like farmers, shareholders, and investors (mainly OFWs). Since the management has seen the need of a guest house to accommodate these stakeholders who would want to visit the farm, few have been carefully constructed, the Farm Ridge. Undoubtedly, every stakeholder having the chance to visit the farm has witnessed the beauty of nature at its finest glory and has seen the significance of promoting and supporting various agricultural practices. And this is where DFPI started considering opening its gates to the public. It is such a big opportunity to introduce agriculture to people, especially to the youth, who would want to visit the farm and to let them appreciate the beauty of nature.
Currently, Farm Ridge offers the following activities for a more date with nature and farm life feels: Desmond Farm Cacao Plantation Tour, Cacao Plantation Tour and Awitan Falls Trip, and Backyard Camp
