BAHAY Buffet Goes to Bahay ni Kulas in Amadeo Cavite

70 Barangay Minantok West , Amadeo – Cavite province, Philippines 

We passed several houses with small garden  and orchids

It was a bright and sunny weather when we were fetch by BAHAY Buffet team from Hotel Intercontinental in Makati , It took us over 2 hours and went on a road trip south of Metro Manila passing several towns along its way .

That is nice about BAHAY Buffet dining experience ,is not  just about foods but also camaraderie, opening of new friendship , sharing one’s personal experiences in life and road trip adventure ! Here is a link to a previous event  held last July 21,2015 in MOCA Farm within Padre Garcia , Batangas

entrance to the farm

The farm is about 2 hectares owned by the family of Cuevas who made a lot of improvements within the property during a 7- year period . Turning the once vine laden with old coffee trees and coconuts area into a lush tropical plantation with dragon fruits, calamansi  with different kinds of orchid hybrids  and bananas.  What i liked about the perimeter wall around the farm is that they are planted with hedge shrubs which makes the family -style farm rustic and green.

The family farm is located a few kilometers from Amadeo Public Market and the town boast  a lot of agricultural produce like Coffee which earn the town its nickname ” Coffee Capital ” of the Philippines .
