Pro-duce

June 23, 2010

To further realize the concept of “self-sustainability” in our family, the wife and I have decided to get in the Bountiful Harvest program so that we can grow our own food for consumption and be as close to independence from food coming off the market place. The security this brings is that you know what went into the production of your food. No nasty pesticides and fertilizers, goodbye questionable feeds.Hello, fresh and all natural produce.

Bountiful Harvest is owned by Simon and Jinky Gill. Simon and I met at a Chamber meeting and instantly hit it off. The couple is a funny and lively tandem who is in the business of organic farming and rural development though sustainable agriculture. Their setting is off the national highway in Puerto Princesa, in a hectare of farmland with varying contours. A portion is flat and low lying, while the rest is on sloping land. Different crops and livestock fill up the property.

More farming goin on

Their aim is to set an example to locals so that their methods may be emulated. Here people can also learn their methods of farming so that it can be implemented in one’s own land. Some of the techniques practiced at the farm are lowland growing techniques, sloping architecture land technology, improved livestock raising such as: odour free pigs, free range chicken and improved goat raising. Integrated pest control can also be a part of one’s program.

The Bountiful farm is located along the National Highway, Km. 8 in Sicsican, Puerto Princesa. You can reach them via email at bountifulhrd@yahoo.com.ph or their mobile phone at (0917) 849-2911 or (0917) 360-6406.

We are making the right turn. Let's do this!
