It was holiday last Monday here in Bohol in celebration of Bohol Day. Hubby and Daughter have no classes so we decided to visit another place just like during the last holiday which was the Tagbilaran Day. We went to Bohol Bee Farm that afternoon but last Monday, we headed to Bohol Coco Farm.
Since we were only six, including my two daughters, Hubby decided to go there via motorbikes. Anyway, Bohol Coco Farm is much nearer than Bohol Bee Farm from our place. It was less than 15 minutes drive. When we reached the place, we were welcomed by a smiling friendly staff in uniform. She asked us if we would like to have the tour or we would dine in at their Palwa Restaurant. We decide to take the tour 🙂
There is minimal entrance tour/fee of P50 per person for the tour. This fee includes the use of all the farm’s facilities. Our first destination was Coco Farm’s View Deck.
And from the deck, the guests can see the vegetation, poultry and piggery as well as the Coco Sky Walk and the Hanging Bridge (don’t expect too much from the hanging bridge because it is just too short). The vegetation was under rehabilitation. The management wanted the vegetables replaced with vegetables needed in their PALWA restaurant’s dishes.
From Coco Farm’s View Deck, we headed to the Coco Sky Walk. There are certain rules and limitations when using the Coco Sky Walk. I thought Daughter won’t be allowed to use it since she’s only five years old. But the tour guide was more than willing to let the little girl try it.
So Daughter joined her Dad and the other two young people who were with us traversed the pathway
I didn’t take the risk to climb up to the Coco Sky Walk because I was carrying the younger girl.
The tour guide and Iwaited for them on the other side of the Coco Sky Walk where they went down. We then proceeded to the piggery and feed the hogs using the leaves of Kadios. From the piggery we continued our tour to the poultry. We also feed the chicken with duck weeds which were scooped by the tour guide earlier.
The upper left image is the duck weeds, the lower left is the Kadios, FAITH is the entrance to the piggery and poultry. FAITH stands for Food Always In The House.
From the poultry and piggery, we returned to the entrance of the Coco Sky Walk. The Coco Hanging Bridge was just few steps away from the Coco Sky Walk’s start.Daughter again was so eager to try it despite her Dad’s hesitation. But Daughter won.
We were also guided to see their Presidential park before we finally rested.
And of course, the tour was not complete without tasting even just one of their dishes. So before we ended our tour we ordered Coco Pansit and Banana Cue and Mango Ice Cream With Malunggay for the bigger Daughter. The prices were not that expensive for tourists but for locals like us, the price of the Coco Pansit is good enough for the day’s food of the entire family. I also bought few stalks of Citronella plant before we finally left Coco Farm.
