Bohol Bee Farm

Bohol Bee Farm is more than just a farm, they actually have room accommodations making them a resort/farm in one. What I like about this place is they offer almost all you need from a long day tour in the entire island, pretty much a refueling station.







Bohol Bee Farm is located in Dao, Dauis, Panglao Island, Bohol. A place where you can buy souvenirs from food to novelty items and enjoy a homey-laid-back place.
The organic garden
The main reason why we visited the farm during our Bohol day tour (aside from its part of the itinerary) was the Malunggay (moringa) ice cream. I was thinking its a totally new thing for us to try something that others might consider exotic. Though the taste was far beyond exotic as I was expecting it to be bitter, it was sweet and has a distinct milk and veggie-ish taste. You should go there and try it yourself (lol) I cannot explain how it tasted. Aside from Malunggay, they also have other usual flavors you can try served in an organic sugar cone. Vicky Wallace (owner) might like organic food so much evident in the premise with all the organic-farm-grown vegetables which you can also order from the restaurant and for take-out.

Us eating our ice-creams
When we were having a great time eating ice cream, we noticed a lot of people coming from one side of the farm listening to a lecturer and it was too late for us to realize they were on a tour inside the farm. We were then relieved when one of the crew told us they are doing the mini tour every hour for 30php/person. 


Their bags and mats are made here too.

The tour includes a lecture on almost all the vegetables that the farm is planting for distribution to local organic restaurants in Bohol. It also includes an encounter with the Bees where you can hold the box for a photo opp.

My wife choosing what to buy.


I must say, the Bohol Bee Farm should always be part of your itinerary when you want to visit Bohol.

  1. My beau and I actually stayed here last year. Although we didn't avail of their tours and didn't get to taste the malunggay ice cream, we still enjoyed our stay there. Of course, their organic offerings are super sumptuous, especially the pesto spread and bread. :)

  3. Bees are the best source of honey, the perfect source of vitamin c and other essential nutrients needed by our body. It's good that there's one in Bohol.

  4. I miss this place...
    The first place that I ate flowers as part of my food.
    I had misgivings on why I have to eat flowers, but it turns out, they are edible, and mostly endemic to our country.
    The bees fascinate me too, the little tour they offer for the farm is quite nice.

  16. I was in Panglao last September but unfortunately, I was there for a race (Bohol Marathon 2012) and didn't have much time to go around except for a dinner at Bellevue. I wish I took a couple of hours to visit this place! :(
