Exploring Bemwa Farm

Exploring Bemwa Farm

If you’re into strawberries and happened to be cruising along the Bukidnon-Davao road, then you might want to drop by Bemwa Farm.

How to Get There

It is highly suggested that you have a private car if you want to reach the farm. There is no sign put up along the road pointing to the place. From Davao City, drive along the Bukidnon-Davao road. Once you’ve seen the Philippine Eagle Monument, you’re almost there. Pay attention on the right side. Once you see a sign saying Garden of Gethsemane Mountain Resort, that’s your cue to turn right. If you’re not sure which way to choose, the locals are nice enough to direct you to the right path.

Once you arrive, you’ll have to pay 50 PHP/1 USD per head. The fee is also consumable. You’ll be given a ticket which you can use if you want to purchase something like food, drinks or plants.

Then you’ll meet a lot of vegetable patches. The area is also adorned with beautiful ornamental plants.

Strawberry Picking

If you’re early, you’ll be able to experience strawberry picking. They say people pick as early as 5 am. Unfortunately for us, we left empty handed.


Bemwa sells ornamental plants, herbs, fruits, vegetables and jams. You can also buy refreshments like strawberry taho. I got lychee lemonade and binignit. Binignit is a Visayan dessert made of glutinous rice, root crops, coconut cream and fruits.

Overall, I had fun during my stay. There’s not much you can do around so it’s better if this destination is just an extra in your list. I’d like to know if you had been to a farm. What is it like? Let me know by commenting below.

  1. Yum! Lychee lemonade and strawberry picking sounds really fun! I oils love to visit farms in Phillipines. Great post and what a beautiful farm!


  2. In Tennessee we call Beautiful Farms like this Botanical Gardens. This place is absolutely gorgeous. And I’m sure it’s even more beautiful in person. So glad you got to visit and take such lovely photos.


  3. Wow! Great article. Di ko alam na may iba pa palang magandang puntahan sa Davao. 🙂 I’ve been to Mindanao a lot of times but haven’t of this picturesque place. Thanks for sharing your article.

    More power to you Jill.


  4. Bemwa Farm will be such a fun place to visit with family and kids. The idea of strawberry picking is wonderful and I am impressed by the beauty of this farm.


  5. We absolutely love strawberries. Although we’ve never been strawberry picking, it might be something to put on the 2018 bucket list.


  6. Wow! I didn’t know that Davao has also a strawberry farm like Bagiuo. If I knew this one before I should have visited it when hubby and I went for out vacation. This looks like a beautiful place, peaceful and the nature is gorgeous. Thanks for you lovely experience shared, this one is pinned already for my future travels in Davao.


  7. Shame that the strawberry picking is only done during the early hours of the morning. Do people wake up to early to go and do it? I can imagine it’s an interesting activity but why so early? The farm looks like a nice place if you want to go and relax in nature.Your driving directions are very useful to whoever wants to go there.
