Welcome to our Environmental Education Centre & Organic Farm
Our focus is enhanced lifestyle and environmental education: Helping make life simple again.
The Happy House Farm exists to help make life simple again, and support you to discover how to live your life to it’s greatest potential.
Our organic farm is easy to get to and located in a rural rice farming area just 1km from the beach in the middle of nowhere. Our nearest town is Rosario, La Union 14km away. We are blessed with concrete road access right to the gate and we’re only 3km off the national highway so we are easy to reach by car and public transport.
Life these days can be too busy and too fast. The Happy House Farm exists as a place of re-connection and re-education – allowing us all to reconnect with our environment, our true inner selves and with life in general. To live life to the full with ease and flow while living in a fast-paced world, requires re-education.
The education we receive at school normally does not prepare us for a life of full of fun, caring, joy, expression, empowerment, sensuality, abundance and happiness because these natural experiences get side-swamped so easily by the pressures of modern living.
Your Hosts David & Carol
The farm was created and is currently managed by David Anttony and Carol Javier. David is from New Zealand but was born in the UK having lived most of his life in Australasia and Asia. Carol was born in the nearby town of Sison but has lived overseas in Singapore for nearly half of her life.
Carol is an amazing host making everyone feel at home while caring for them with her delicious healthy mainly meat-free fusion cuisine meals.
Historically David has learned most of his organic and natural health skills in New Zealand over 25 years ago. He has created and co-created 8 different businesses in 5 different countries as well as while living in spiritual communities like Findhorn in Scotland.
The property was purchased in September 2011. It was originally part of a 1.6 hectare parcel of land. Three quarters of a hectare (7000m2) was sub-dividend off the original land, and 1/8th hectare of land was purchased off another neighbour to gain road access for the new organic farm.
From 2012 building commenced starting with the ‘Little’ Happy House (bamboo house) and compost area and water tower. The real building started in March 2013 laying the foundations for the Happy House, driveway, water system tanks, recycle water system and septic tank.
Building on the Happy House was suspended in late 2013 because of funds shortage. In late 2013 the bamboo ‘Little’ Happy House was demolished and in it’s place a permanent residency was built with an attached guest room where the compost area used to be. Work on the Happy House will continue in mid 2014 with the completion of the basement guest rooms and a guest hang-out space.
The ‘Big Happy House’ – the original main building on the site plan – a 500m2 two level octagonal building overlooking the sea will probably now be built as it is needed as the project grows.
The property is a smoke-free zone and alcoholic spirits free zone – beer is ok. Smoking is ok at the farm gate as long as guests take responsibility with their cigarette buts 🙂
