In addition to herbs, spices and other organic produce, Cebu City is also home to an organic farm offering honey and its by-products. Aside from being used as a natural sweetener, honey can also be used as a natural moisturizer. Dad’s Organic Farm
was started in 2012 by the de Jesus family at the backyard of their house in Sunset Drive, Lahug, Cebu City.
Since honey production is seasonal, the family had to ration the honey to ensure a continuous flow of products. Their initial start of only eight colonies of bees then grew to 40 colonies. While the farm is now capable of sustaining its production, there are some instances when the supply of honey becomes scarce.
Aside from honey, Dad’s Organic Farm also offers bee pollen, honey kalamansi (calamodin) salad dressing, aromatherapy massage oil, honey milk soap, lemongrass soap, and rosemary soap. The bestseller of the farm is pure honey, which is used by customers as a sweetener or moisturizer. While customers can drop by the outlet in Lahug, they can also place their orders through (032) 383 6016 and have their purchases delivered to them.
