If you’re planning to visit the province of Benguet, don’t forget to visit the famous Strawberry Farm Baguio. By the way, this tourist attraction is located in La Trinidad (the capital of Benguet), which is a few kilometers away from Baguio City. Visiting this beautiful farm is easy, and here’s our travel guide to help you out!
As of October 17, 2022: The La Trinidad Strawberry Farm is open only to registered visitors of Baguio City or Benguet. You can check our comprehensive travel guide going to Baguio City at this link: https://lostandwonder.com/baguio-itinerary/
La Trinidad Strawberry Farm is open every day, even on holidays.
The Strawberry Farm Baguio: La Trinidad’s Finest
Benguet is a high-altitude province located in the southern part of the Cordillera Administrative Region. The province’s cool climate and highlands are conducive to harvesting farm produce and fruits like strawberries.
La Trinidad is the capital of Benguet. It is also known as the Strawberry Capital of the Philippines due to its large plantation of luscious strawberries. The municipality is seated next to Baguio City, the summer capital of the Philippines, and visiting these hectares of colorful fields is easy.
How to Go to Strawberry Farm Baguio
There are various options for visiting the Strawberry Farm Baguio; you can take a cab, ride a jeepney or bring your private vehicle.
For private vehicle owners, I recommend downloading Google Maps on your smartphone. This option helps shows directions to La Trinidad Strawberry Farm. You only need a strong internet connection to access the map. Worst case scenario, why not go and try asking our friendly locals? The people of Benguet are well known for their accommodating and friendly nature, making you feel at home around the province.
If you don’t have a private vehicle but have some extra cash, take a cab and tell the driver to drop you off at La Trinidad Strawberry Farms. Although the fare will be a little pricey, it will be more comfortable and more accessible for you to travel to this beautiful location. Unfortunately, taxis can only accommodate up to four passengers at a time, and you might need to “rent a cab” if you need more than four passengers.
For commuters who opted for a jeepney ride, here’s your guide:
From Baguio City
- Take a walk and go to Shuntug Road (in front of Baguio City Hall).
- From there, you’ll find a lot of jeepneys parked and waiting for passengers.
- Take a jeep with the signage “La Trinidad” and ask the driver to drop you off at La Trinidad Strawberry Farm.
- The fare costs only PHP 15 per person (around USD 0.25) as of October 17, 2022.
What to Expect and Travel Tips
Strawberry Picking Baguio
Travelers can pick strawberries on this farm. Just approach any farmer in the area, and they will assist you. They usually offer around PHP 500 (USD 8) for a kilogram of strawberries. It is a pleasant experience, and the farmers are eager to share some harvesting techniques. The best season for strawberry picking in La Trinidad is every March to April.
Bring Your Camera!
Never forget to take a snapshot of this place. Every part is picturesque. There’s also a variety of flowers in some areas of the field. Just donate a few coins before entering these flower sections on the farm, and you’ll enjoy capturing photographs of colorful foliage.
Visit the Farm in the Morning
I think it is best to visit the strawberry farm in the morning. The sun’s golden light truly adds a glowing ambiance across the field, which is captivating. This is also the best time when farmers pick the freshest strawberries. Also, there are fewer people if you visit the farm early in the morning.
Try the Filipino-Made Strawberry Ice Cream
This is the best place to try the most delicious and flavorful strawberry ice cream. Their ice cream is creamy with a mixture of sweet and sour from fresh strawberries. You’ll never forget the flavorful explosion of strawberry ice cream in La Trinidad.
Try the Popular Strawberry Taho
Taho is a soy-based Filipino snack made from silken tofu, usually topped with sago pearls (similar to tapioca pearls) and covered with arnibal (caramelized brown sugar syrup). In addition, their taho is drizzled with strawberry syrup and topped with fresh strawberries.
We recommend visiting this strawberry farm in La Trinidad. You will enjoy the colorful fields and experience their sweet strawberries. We are also helping this beautiful farm’s local farmers through tourism.
