A Visit to the MoCa Family Farm: Agri-Tourism Farm


For someone like me who can only afford to keep a small garden (maybe at our rooftop), I am always excited to visit a Family Farm / Urban Garden. 

MoCA Family Farm is truly one of its kind family farm resort in Batangas. An old mango orchard that was transformed into a garden and farm by Ms Gigi Morris and her family. The name is a combination of the surnames of Ms Gigi and her sister's respective husbands - Morris and Castor.

The MoCa Family Farm is an inspiration taken from university orchard in Las Vegas where her horticulturist husband Bob used to work. Now, the family farm is run by the couple and their son - who we call a BFF (Batang Filipino Farmer) features a variety of exotic fruits, herbs, vegetables and our very own 25 native plants that are featured in the booked "Sariling Atin" which Ms Gigi has authored.

We got a delightful taste of what the MoCa Family Farm is offering - a farm-to-table experience. The farm also cultivate native pigs and chicken. It used to be a playground for rabbits known as Robby Rabbitry but most of them died after typhoon in 2014.

 Ms Gigi toured us around the family farm and introduced us to the 25 native plants. She stressed the importance of cultivating plants that is good for family survival - and family bonding.

@livingmarjorney crafted her own tea!

She also taught us how to mix our own tea infusion. I remember my days when I personally do tea cupping seminars back when I was still working in a coffee shop.

Teas came from plant Camellia Sinesis, and teas are categorized as black, green and oolong. You can create a tea infusion by adding herbs, spices and dried fruits or flowers. 

It was truly a meaningful day knowing more about the MoCa family and their farm. 
Check out their little home and know more about organic farming.
