Tarlac City is blooming these days. This is because of an emerging flower farm that gives an Amsterdam feels to its visitors.
Located in Barangay Mapalaciao, Tarlac City, the Farmer’s Love Agri Farm has been making rounds online because of its vast, colorful flower patch that has been dubbed as the “Little Amsterdam of Tarlac.”
A set of photographs posted by Peter Paul Pamintuan, a graphic designer, on Facebook shows how mesmerizing the variety of floral display is. A vast bed of garden plants such as sunflowers, marigolds, zinnias, celosias, vinca and many more can be seen in the farm.
“For all those who are wondering where this beautiful colorful patch is, the place is called ‘Farmer’s Love Agri Farm’. It’s right off Hacienda Luisita, Tarlac exit, TPLEX Northbound,” Pamintuan said on Facebook.
The picturesque farm first opened its doors to the public last July 27, 2019. Tourists, both kids and adults, can visit the place and will only have to pay an entrance fee that ranges from P40 to P60.
The Farmer’s Love Agri Farm, which could be reached via a four-hour drive from Manila, is open from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
According to its Facebook page, visitors may ride a bus going to Luisita Tarlac and then take a jeep going to Asturias and ask the driver to drop you off at farm, which can be easily found as it is situated near the highway.
Pamintuan’s photos of the emerging tourist destination have been featured by different media outfits. With this, he’s reminding the public and fellow travelers to observe and obey the rules enforced within the farm.
“It is our duty and contributions as tourists to take care of the farm. Let’s enjoy the beauty of the farm in its full bloom,” he said.
The farm, for its part, told the public to bring umbrellas because the farm is an open space, bring water to stay hydrated, avoid wearing of high-heeled shoes, and of course, not to forget — your cameras.
