Fun Farm at Sta. Elena: Perfect Family Holiday
Thankful for the holiday, me and my colleagues decided to have a day off from work, to relax and unwind together with our families. We arrived at the farm as early as 8:30 AM. Since it was a holiday, it’s not a surprise that there were only few visitors. At first I thought it was a great place for kids but as we explore the farm we enjoyed as much as the kids did.
Amenities at The Farm
There are animal feeding stations for our furry friends. They have carrots that the guinea pigs and rabbit eat up.
A small pond for the ducks and fish, pellets are also available for feeding. You can row a boat around the pond or if you have the agility and stamina you can cross the pond using wobbly rope bridge.
Sand house to explore and be creative and make sand castles, it is also fully equipped with swing and slides. Kids or even grown-ups like Mom and Dad will enjoy going through the obstacle course and giant swings. Similarly the place is ideal for team building activities.
Choc Nut the friendly Carabao will happily give you a tour inside the farm with his cart. Also there are lots of horses, big and small are available for horseback riding. I had a small chit chat with our guide and learned that the horses are imported aging from 5 to 7 years old. Animal handlers and farm guides are very helpful and friendly. The rides and activities are unlimited.
Everyone was excited to try the mini zip line, including myself. But I was hesitant if my 3 year old son is brave enough to take the challenge. I let him watch the others to go first to give him an idea on how it works. Brave Ate Ella was first to go, she was ecstatic and the rest followed. When I asked my little Bentley Kenzo if he would like to try, he was smiling and very courageous. We hike up the tree house and prepare ourselves for the ride. I’m so happy he has no fear of heights and very delightful with the zip line experience. It was indeed a milestone for him.
The Fun Farm assures that every ride is safe. The kids are securely strapped with harness, helmets are also provided. The farm guides are also very keen and supervise each round from push to catch below.
What’s admirable with Sta. Elena Fun Farm is that the area is safe for kids to roam around. You can let your kids play in the open grounds, it is secluded and quiet. During our visit it was sunny but the breeze was so cool that it feels like you’re in Tagaytay . I love the inspirational quotes, beautifully crafted in wood planks which decorates the farm, giving it a relaxing vibe.
The place was so serene, it was indeed a day well spent to commune with nature and bond with friends and family.
