Will you believe me if I say that this gorgeous flower farm used to be a wasteland? Well, I can’t believe it myself because I saw the beauty of Girasoles Farm when my friends and I decided to visit it. But, yeah! The famous Girasoles Farm used to be a wasteland before the owners decided to make the most out of this piece of land. And now, more than hundreds of tourists, travelers, and riders are dropping by to see the wonderful flowers and plants covering the land.
If you passed by Candelaria, Quezon, don’t forget to drop by and visit Girasoles Farm and here are some of the things you can expect to see inside.
On a gloomy Sunday, my friends and I decided to do a quick stroll and head to the famous Girasoles Farm located in Brgy. Masin Sur, Diversion Road, Candelaria, Quezon.
Though the weather isn’t on our side, we still decided not to waste the day and go to the farm. It was a challenging road trip, to be frank considering that the rain shower is not showing any signs that it will stop.
Previously, Girasoles Farm is known as Angel’s Sunflower Field mainly because most of the one-hectare land is covered with gracious sunflowers. The owners of the farm revamp the land and added a wide variety of flowering plants that will surely brighten up your Instagram feed/ photos.
Girasoles Farm is open on weekdays from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM and on weekends from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM. The entrance fee costs 100 php for regular rate and students get the discounted price of 80 php.
Since Girasoles Farm reopened, it has been the go-to spot for photographers and videographers because the lively colors of the flowers make any photo lovelier. Thus, if you’re looking for a good spot for photoshoots or pre-nup shoots, Girasoles Farm is the place to go!
There are several food stalls inside the farm so you won’t need to bring your own foods or snacks. Plus, what’s good about the farm is the fact that they have farmers roaming around to make sure that the plants are maintained properly.
After taking gazillion of photos around, my hungry tummy decided it’s time to bother my friends so we can eat! Just a few meters away from Girasoles Farm, we found Bangihan ni Kuya (this place is getting more and more popular).
Bangihan ni Kuya is a restaurant in a garden settings and I must say that the ambience is really good. The price points of the foods are pretty decent though the servings are not as generous as I expect it to be (matakaw lang talaga ako, sorry!). We ordered ginataang kalabaw, sinugbang tilapya, and rice. The waiting time takes a looooooooooong time. So, please be patient if you’re going to eat here! Better yet, roam around the area and take photos so you can forget about the long wait time.
