Mapols Farm is an ideal weekend getaway if you want to have a quick break from the busy life of the city and do a little reconnection with nature. It is a cool combination of vintage and farm life which can transport you to 1950’s where life was way simpler than what we have.
Welcoming you is a 1955 Ford V8 truck which once owned by Mayor Florentino Perez. Then you will be lead to different “pugad” (nest) for photo opportunities. There are also “papag” (cottage) where you can rest. And there is an in-house restaurant in case you’ll get hungry.
Entrance: 20 php
Pugad (each): 10 phpCottage: starts at 100 php which you can use the whole day
Ely’s Kitchen is Mapols Farm’s in-house diner. You can grab a quick snack or full meal here. I suggest that if you want to eat, you must place your order first before checking out the farm because wait time is too long.

How to Get There
Mapols Farm is becoming a famous spot in Pototan. You can ride a Pototan jeepney from Tagbak Terminal and tell the driver or konduktor that you are headed to Mapols Farm. If there are a number of passengers going the same route, they will take you there. Fare is 40php.
If not, you can drop by at their old market and ride a tricycle going to the farm. Fare is 30 php up to the market and 10 php going to Mapols Farm.
They are open daily. If you can come there on weekdays, I think the better. On weekends, there are a lot of people and the queue for pugad photos can be long.
You can also climb up their tree house, roam around the farm, take a lot of photos and eat ice cream.
