A Visit to Yoki’s Farm

Yoki’s Farm is located in Tabluan Rd. San Isidro Palocpoc I, Mendez, Cavite. It was actually a walk-in visit when we went there. I got intrigued on one blog i read from Lorra Elena and so I asked Mahal (hubby) to put Yoki’s Farm as one of our itinerary during a road trip to Tagaytay.

Just like Lorra Elena’s experience, we also missed the gate of Yoki’s Farm and reached the dead-end part where group of men (workers i think) are having their siesta. So we had to drove back and finally found the gate with YOKI letter on top.

The entrance fee is P100 each, a little pricey i think but worth it for plant lovers. And we have to understand the amount of maintenance they need to run the place.

The farm features a hydroponics farm wherein variety of lettuce and kale are planted in nutrient-filled water instead of soil. They also house other fruit bearing trees (Mulberries are my fave), orchid and herb garden, mini zoo and collections of antiques and artifacts.

A three hours of touring and we’re done. We left Yoki’s Farm with fresh lettuce, kale and mulberries on hand (I wished i had more cash in hand at that time so I can also buy fresh cherry tomatoes). We also bought Basil plants and Vanda orchid.
