    This is a Social Enterprise and it is still in its infant stage as a learning/training site which offers farm tourism.

    We are looking for technical help such as writers, content makers, marketing experts, designers, prepare proposals and coach our farm business management team to run the farm towards a sustainable direction.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Our farm house is away from the busy Coron town and situated in a typical village. It is equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, dipping pool, working area with electricity. There is an internet connection but not fast. It has a private room but we prefer sleeping on mats/foam with mosquito nets.

    You can pick and cook farm produce including veggies, herbs, eggs, and fruits. We have an open kitchen available where you can prepare your own meals. We sometimes will eat as a group!

    What else ...

    To anyone interested staying to our farm house it would be ideal to have a motorbike as a regular transport. This will provide mobility if he/she wants to get to town to take island tours. Once at the farm there are mountain bikes available too for use to buy stuff in the nearby stores.
