Flower Farm in Bahong La Trinidad Benguet

Have you ever wondered where all the flowers in almost all flower shops in Manila come from?

I recently celebrated my Birthday at Baguio and I always make sure to visit the Strawberry farm in La Trinidad Benguet to go strawberry picking and to experience, once in a while, the taste of Benguet’s unique strawberry Taho.

I noticed that the flower farm in the area was recently replaced by vegetables and strawberry crops. While walking around, I asked a local for directions to places where most flower plantations are located and she immediately advised for me to visit Bahong – a not so small sitio which is still part of La Trinidad Benguet.

I was lucky to have hired a polite Taxi driver who toured me from the strawberry farm all the way to Bahong flower farm without hearing any complaint. After almost 30 minutes, I arrived at an area that is so quiet and the only scenery that you can see is the Sierra Madre mountain ranges surrounding the huge cutflower greenhouses, flower nurseries and rose plantations.

Roses were the first cutflower grown in the area but more and more flower producers are considering chrysanthemum and Mums production due to it’s high and ever growing demand. Flower production provides higher return on investment that’s why more and more vegetable producers are starting to consider cutflower production as an alternative.

Everyone in the area was busy when I arrived, most probably due to the high demand for flowers since I visited the area 4 days before the Valentines day. 80% of the country’s requirement for Chrysanthemum and Mums are supplied by Benguet Cutflower producers.

La Trinidad is just about 20 minutes away from Baguio. Some of the interesting places in La Trinidad is the strawberry farm, the orchidarium near Benguet State University, and the flower farms in Bahong.

    My hometown La Trinidad is well known for strawberries and cut flowers. I migrated to North America 24 years ago. When fellow Filipinos ask where I am from back home, I usually come up with – “where the roses and strawberries are grown”. The view of the mountains posted is what I woke up to for the first 21 years of my life. Growing up in a place of “eternal spring” with pine trees, a gurgling brook nearby, majestic mountains and fragrant flowers is truly a blessing.
