MJD Urban Escape Farm
Located at Brgy. Bocohan, Lucena City, Quezon Province, Philippines
About 2 years ago, a friend of mine recommended this place to me. As the name implies, visiting this place is like an escape from the stressful city life we are facing everyday. Who would have thought that in the heart of Lucena City. You can still find a place like this.
We actually visited this place because we are looking for a place where we can be alone and relax. We are also looking for an outdoor restaurant where we can eat and enjoy food while enjoying nature. And yes, we are very lucky that we have found this nearby sanctuary.
Our first activity at the place? We first had our sumptuous lunch upon arrival at the place. The setting of their restaurant is nice and comfy. We are actually the only customer that time. First Goal Met! “We are alone” at the place. Well, not really, there are accommodating staffs and security assisting us.
First, I would like to commend their foods at MJD Farm. It is a little pricey but I think its worth it. Number one on the list would be Pork Sisig, our all-time favorite dish. As a Sisig fanatic, I may say that this is the second best Sisig I have tasted so far, next to Kamayan sa Palaisdaan Pork Sisig.
We also ordered the usual chicken barbecue, which turns out to be soft, tender and flavorful. But I was not fully satisfied with this product because of its small serving. However, the presentation is a little unique. It was served with a leaf. Oh, before I forgot, their staff claims that this farm promotes organic foods.
For our liquid refreshment, we have ordered their best seller “Papaya-Mansi” fruit shake. The shake was served in large glass. It has a smoothie like consistency. And the taste is superb. In fact, I am impressed with their fruit shake. The flavor selection is uncommon.
We also ordered their famous “Durian Ice Cream” as our dessert. Durian fruit is actually not my type. But surprisingly, this ice cream tastes extremely good for me. But sad to say, it was served in a small container. So your tendency is to ask for more. I would definitely go back to this place because of this ice cream. I actually plans to try new dish but at that time, most of their unfamiliar menu is not available.
After satisfying our taste buds, we roamed around the place and found out that the place has many amenities that can be used on occasions like parties and weddings. Can you imagine yourself doing your bridal walk here? I did!
We have actually asked the information staff if they are accepting actual wedding ceremonies on this isle looking gateway. But that time, they told us that they have not done it yet but we can ask the owner if they will allow. Well, this is a perfect wedding ceremony venue for a garden wedding I think. So beautiful indeed. Plus they have a function hall for your reception. Perfect combination right? I just hope it is not that expensive.
One spot that also catches my eye was this small bridge. I am dreaming of doing pre-nup shots here. Well, how I wish. haha!
Well of course, you also need to know that they have functioning clean comfort rooms inside the farm. Their comfort rooms are gender sensitive. One for male and one for female visitors.
In addition, your kids will also enjoy their stay in this farm. Let them explore and play on the farm’s playground.
They also have organic plants on their “Garden of Herbs”. I don’t know if they sell those herbs to visitors. But I hope they will have that option. I guess, there are more than hundred of herbs planted on this garden. I just got tired reading all the herbs information tags.
The place is indeed very relaxing and peaceful. If you love nature tripping. Then it is a must that you visit this place.
I am actually running out of words in describing how beautiful this place is. Our experience at this place is absolutely splendid. If ever I can have a time to go back, I would definitely visit MJD Farm again. I just hope, they will add Spa or Massage service in the farm to complete the relaxing experience.
