The Farm is an eco-socially responsible business and a true green destination that minimises its carbon footprint by serving farm-to-table, plant-based, whole-food vegan cuisine, which, apart from being beneficial to people’s health, has also been proven to be good for the environment. The Farm has developed a 15,000-square-metre organic farm where everything grown on the land has been designed to fit The Farm’s culinary needs, designed to have a seasonal rotation of crops for a true farm-to-table experience. The Farm at San Benito not only believes in the healing power of nature but in healing nature as well. A vegan diet is said to be the single biggest way to reduce environmental impact on the earth, and The Farm at San Benito puts this at the forefront of its values. The Farm has been growing and using medicinal herbs that have been present in the Philippines and were used by Filipinos in ancient times for their curative power.
A pioneer when it comes to delicious, organic, plant-based cuisine, The Farm is home to the award-winning ALIVE! Vegan Restaurant, one of Asia’s first and finest restaurants offering fresh organic vegan cuisine, eco-friendly food that is homegrown and freshly picked from The Farm’s organic vegetable and herb garden.

Each dish is packed with holistic goodness that nourishes the body.

Food waste from the kitchen is transported up to the farm daily and is either given to farm animals or used for compost. The compost area is where both the agricultural and biodegradable waste of The Farm are treated to craft natural fertilisers by allowing the waste to ferment aerobically with microorganisms. Vermiculture is also used to help break down the waste, and vermicast is used as additional topsoil. By growing the majority of its produce on-site, The Farm not only increases food security, but also reduces its carbon footprint by limiting the transport of food.
In addition to serving healing foods, The Farm uses their 3,000 coconut trees to produce sustainable virgin coconut oil. This is used as the base for all biodegradable products; such as bathroom amenities, for various spa and medical treatments, in food preparation, and even as non-toxic cleaning materials.
The Farm also produces and brews its own coffee with the famous “Barako” coffee beans of Batangas province. The Farm likewise grows and uses medicinal herbs that have been present in the Philippines and were used by Filipinos in ancient times for their curative power.
The Farm also patronises local and organic produce as part of its sustainable practices. It has allotted plots for the spa to grow local medicinal herbs to be used for its treatments. The Farm practises a strict farm-to-skin concept where the spa uses all-natural ingredients freshly picked from its own garden. It also uses Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) known for its anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. This oil is pressed from organic coconuts that can be found all around the property; VCO is 100% natural and contains no chemicals or preservatives.
The Farm at San Benito employs a team of highly-skilled health and hospitality professionals, many of whom are from the local community. The resort’s commitment to environmental sustainability also supports the local ecosystem and promotes eco-tourism in the region.
