Organic Farming In The Philippines

Organic Farming has made a strong upwards turn in the Philippines in the last five years thanks to the dedicated effort of a few key organic farming players here in the Philippines fueled by strong consumer demand. This welcomed upwards trend can at last bring much needed financial reward to farmers. The farming industry in general has not seen much growth so with the massive sub-sector growth of organic farming both the environment and the organic farmers flourish – a true win-win. This trend will send a flare into the air warning conventional farmers it’s time to change to organic farming if they want to sustain their revenues.

A recent unexpected sub-trend in organic farming is the exponential growth of agri-tourism. Not only do people want organic products, they want to see how they are grown, and are willing to pay to visit farms to experience this. Agri-tourism is now a booming industry in the Philippines, and is inspiring young people to join the organic farming movement. This important turn-style is the tide-turner to help solve the problem of aging farmers. Organic farming now has a secure and very prosperous future as it should.

Some Key Reasons Why YOU Should Move To Organic Farming

Farming in the Philippines has become an “old man’s game”. Here in Gumot 95% of all the farmers are over 50 with 20% over 60. This statistic tells you that farming in the Philippines is not attractive to young people. This trend must change else food security in the Philippines is at risk.

Young people often get excited with something new and different that is not too hard to make a living at. The older generations grew up with hard-work-and-struggle, but the younger generations with internet access, see that many people in the world do not work super hard just to survive. They somehow know there is another way – and there is!

Here are some reasons to not only get into farming but to focus on organic farming here in the Philippines :

  1. You make more money! The gross profit margin of organic foods are higher than conventional
  2. You have options to create agritourism ventures
  3. You can find ways to direct sell to key businesses who want organic products because they are hard to source
  4. If you know how you can create intelectual property by creating a brand
  5. You can use modern organic and permaculture ‘technologies’ such as deep-litter animal pens, Bokashi, vermiculture, EM cultures, aquaculture etc. to save you time, energy and money
  6. You can sell from your farm gate cutting out the middle man – people will travel to your farm!
  7. You save on labour costs because you can charge people a farm entry fee and then they pick their own!
  8. You can attract overseas and local volunteers who will PAY you to WORK!

And the list goes on.

If you use focus on conventional farming and try to achieve the above you will not likely succeed. Organic farming is ATTRACTIVE to people. They want to know how their food is grown naturally and they are willing to pay to come and see!

The Happy House Organic Farm supports organic and would-be organic farmers to create a thriving business with little capital in organic farming. Join the revolution! Become an organic farmer.
