Team Dlinkers Summer 2015 is decided to be held at the countryside of Iloilo Province – at Garin Farm in San Joaquin. Our rendezvous is at Mohon Terminal in Arevalo where we can ride PUJ going to San Joaquin. Travel time is about an hour and a half.
Garin Farm is like an agritourism which aims to bring people back to nature by showing us what are the different kinds of animals we can raise and what kinds of plant we can grow for food. The place will also take you back to your faith through a little pilgrimage as you enter the biblical journey until you reach ‘heaven’. They also have facilities you can try for different activities like kayaking, ATV Ride, zipline, horseback riding and many more.
Upon entry, you will be welcomed by a very friendly reminder 🙂
For a quick guide, here’s Garin Farm Rates (amount may vary from the date this blog is posted)

Before you reach the center of the agritourism spot, you will pass by their Green Vegetable Tunnel.
You will also meet two important people – the Modern Ilonggo Farmer and San Isidro Labrador, the Patron Saint of Farmers.
Visit also their “Bahay Kubo” where you can see the presence of every vegetable included in the song. Lyrics is on the picture in case you might want to sing it.
Here are some of the animals, plants and amenities you can encounter:
For gastronomic experience, an in house restaurant is also available to serve your favorite meal. Additionally you can also try their swimming pool.

We also had our mini pilgrimage from the beginning until we reached the heaven.

Here’s another view.
And one awesome jumpshot.
We arrived there before lunch and we immediately started our quick tour. We also had our simple team building activities.
Building tower using spaghetti pasta.
Picking up candies with chopsticks.
Writing the company name using one pen.
All these games aims to develop the camaraderie and teamwork of all. After the game, we had lunch at their resto – nilagpang, fried kangkong, chicken and drinks. You just have to prepare extra money because the food is a little bit pricey and the serving isn’t that generous.
After the quick rest and siesta, the team also tried various water and land activities.
We ended the fun by licking a good ice cream and sipping fresh milk. You can also buy pasalubong for your love ones in the city like vinegar, eggs, sugar and other farm products.
