Sta Elena Fun Farm

One cool Sunday afternoon, our family decided to skip the malls and enjoy the outdoors. I remembered reading about the Sta Elena Fun Farm and thought it would be nice to change of environment for the kids.

So after lunch, we loaded the kids into their car seats and started our drive to Cabuyao, Laguna.
The animal farm is located within the Sta Elena Property which also houses the famous Sta Elena Golf & Country Club.  Traffic was quite good so we got there in a little less than 30 minutes.

The farm is pretty small and you'd be able to see and experience everything leisurely in about 2 hours. But it was definitely an activity-packed and very educational 2 hours for us.

Let our pictures tell you the story...
Herd of sheep resting by the picnic tables
Dawn went inside the rabbit pen and enjoyed feeing the little bunnies.
There were also hungry little Guinea Pigs to feed and Troy made sure they were not forgotten.
From the little animals to the big ones, Troy got to interact with all of them
Yes, we even got to feed Choc-nut, the Carabao
The tour around the farm in the Carabao-driven carriage was a first for all of us
Dawn and i got the ride Mr. Choc-nut.  It was a little bit scary when the Carabao started to walk. I felt like i was going to fall. But this little girl has no fear and didn't want to go down. Dawn called him 'Horsie' :) 
And of course we couldn't skip Troy's favorite activity 
My sister was up for a different kind of adventure. Can you cross those ropes to the other side?
We got to try our hand at fishing...
...while my mom and Dawn chased these little duckies around
My sister caught a baby Tilapia!
You'd have to throw back everything you catch. He was too small to eat for dinner anyway :)
Troy enjoyed learning how to paddle a boat (he didn't know Manong at the back was doing the actual work)
My dad at the registration table.  Can i just say they have the friendliest staff ever! 
As we were about to leave, a herd of cows came marching along the road
Isn't that spotted cow so 'imported'?

And speaking of imported...the soap in the bathroom made all the roughing-it-in-the-farm feel classy (read: soshal). Nothing less than L'Occitane Liquid Soap!

Do visit the Fun Farm if you haven't yet. Don't expect a fancy commercial zoo because that is totally not what it is. It's about experiencing the actual farm life and learning fun things.

A visit costs P300 per head for both kids and adults. My 1-year old daughter got in for free so i think infants and toddlers may still be free of charge. I think the price is very reasonable considering it's all-inclusive (feeds for animal, horse and carabao rides, boating, fishing).

You should call Jocelyn (+63939 8032499) to set an appointment before going to ensure they can prepare all the animals for your arrival. They are open everyday (Mon-Sun, including holidays) from morning until 5pm.
