A cacao farmer in Brgy. Cayabu, Municipality of Tanay, Rizal Mrs. Ellen Tan visited the farm of “Dragon Fruit Lady” and owner of Sanchez Farm Ms. Edna Sanchez in Jala-jala, Rizal on July 6, 2017. They got the chance to exchange ideas with regard to organic farming practices. Since they both have passion in the said farming method, they decided to work together and be partners towards promoting organic farming.

Mrs. Tan was a former Assistant Secretary of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and used to be connected with the Department of Agriculture (DA). After her retirement with the government service, she is presently addicted to farming. She is now into cacao farming and intends to make her farm in Brgy. Cayabu as an eco-tourism site that will showcase good agricultural practices.
