Visited the most famous strawberry farm in the Philippines.
Everytime I visit Baguio, visiting this farm in La Trinidad, which is the capital of Benguet, is always on the list. As a Filipino who doesn't eat strawberries often times, and as a Manileno who can't buy them fresh, going to Strawberry Farm somewhat gives me an excitement to eat them as I pick them.
So here is your La Trinidad Strawberry Farm DIY guide.
ABOUT LA TRINIDAD STRAWBERRY FARM
The Strawberry Farm is located in the nearby town of La Trinidad, Benguet, about less than 10 kms away or 30 minutes travel time from the center of Baguio. You can also side-trip Bell Church and Stobosa Hillside along the way.
Upon entering the gate of La Trinidad Strawberry Farm, you’ll notice that there is a wide space surrounded by souvenir stalls. On the opposite side, you’ll see a giant sculpture of a strawberry. You can take pictures from here.
THINGS TO DO INSIDE STRAWBERRY FARM
As the name suggests, the main attractions in La Trinidad Strawberry Farm are the strawberries. Picking strawberries is one of the activities you can do here though it is optional. Harvesting your own strawberries is a bit pricey, that costs P350 per kilo.
If you are on a budget and still wanted to take home strawberries, I suggest that you buy a fresh-fetched ones instead for P150-P180 per kilo. The only downside is that they always get out of stock. In the end, you will just look for strawberries in the market.

The strawberry picking season is from November to May. You don’t have to reserve slots, but the best time to go is in the morning, when there’s not a lot of people yet.
The Strawberry Farm also produces other fruits and vegetables, but most people just go to pick strawberries. They say that this farm has the best sunset view in La Trinidad Valley. The natural flowing water around the farm is used to water the strawberries.
You can opt to have a guide who will give you a basket and assist you in picking the ripe fruits. The strawberry is the only fruit with seeds on the outside. It grows very close to the ground and is a member of the rose family. You can succumb to the temptation to eat it and taste for yourself if it’s really sweet.
Aside from the strawberries, you’ll also see different vegetable species grown here. Among them are cabbage, lettuce, spring onions, tomatoes, pechay, broccoli, and many more. I guess these are back-up crops of the farmers since strawberries are seasonal.
Try Strawberry Ice Cream and Taho
There are also local peddlers selling strawberry taho and ice cream. Don’t miss trying these out.
And if this place is your last destination of your trip, then I suggest that you buy your souvenirs here, too.
HOW TO GET TO LA TRINIDAD STRAWBERRY FARMFrom the public market, ride a jeepney bound for La Trinidad. Fare is less than P20. I suggest you visit in the morning to avoid being stuck with the traffic especially for those who are bringing private vehicles. Parking will take long if you are going during rush hours (same with exiting).
