Ever since we got a glimpse of Bea Alonzo's farm in one of her other YouTube videos, we've been so curious about this family business. And it seems like we weren't the only ones. Her fans have also been dying to see their farm, and thankfully, the actress obliged!
In 2011, Bea and her family acquired the land, thanks to Isabel Rivas, who also has her own land nearby. Bea shared, "Back then, I was very young. Naisip ko, 'Kaya na ba naming mag-farm? Is it worth it? Matututukan ba namin?'" Eventually, they took on the challenge. Now, Bea's mom, stepdad, and brother all live there.
They have eight-year-old mahogany trees, which they consider to be a good investment because furniture designers can purchase them in the future for a good price. They used to have 5,000 trees but they lost one because of a typhoon. Apart from mahogany, they also have mango and calamansi trees!
The actress made sure to show the names of the structures on the farm, one of which is named after one of Bea's most loved roles, Basha. The "House of Basha" refers to the guest rooms they have there.
Bea is super proud of the fact that they have an all-natural or organic farm: "It's the perfect size for the number of cows that we have. We don't do feeds. We don't do antibiotics. We don't do sprays or pesticides. It makes me so happy that it's earth-friendly." Plus, they rely on solar-powered light posts.
Apart from cows, they also have other animals like pigs, sheep, chickens, and ducks.
The farm is also self-sustaining; they get all the rice they consume from a palayan. We also got to meet kuya Dhoy, who's in charge of taking care of everything.
There's a half-court on the farm, for when Bea and her cousins want to play basketball, volleyball, or badminton.
And a treehouse that serves as a "memorial" for the single tree that was found there when they first bought the land. They had to cut it down 'cause of all the snakes that lived in it, but they turned it into a table (and it's still rooted on the ground!).
Right next to it is a pond with tilapia because they're trying to learn how to take care of fish.
