A Day At Sunflora Farm

I’ve been amazed at the province of Rizal and this is the reason why I frequent this place. Before I only visit Antipolo for some food trips but early last year, I started to explore Tanay and Pililla. I’ve done camping, cafe hopping, and food adventures but there is still so much more to discover from this beautiful province that is only 2-3 hours away from the busy streets of Manila. I’ve been seeing a post on social media about a sunflower farm in Jala-Jala and I’ve had a few attempts to visit it. It was only last Saturday when I was finally able to visit this sanctuary. 

Sunflora Farm is situated in Jala-Jala Pililla, Rizal. It took me roughly 3 hours by commute but it was all worth it.

Sunflowers are known as happy flowers and symbolize adoration, loyalty, and longevity. They are native to North and South America. It is gaining popularity in the country and is now given during special occasions like Mother’s Day and birthdays. It is said that sunflowers are one of the easiest flowers to grow. They thrive in full sun and not picky with the type of soil. 

Sunflora farm is open daily from 6 AM-6 PM. Only 15-65 years old are allowed. For only PHP 30, you can have access to the sunflower haven. Perfect place for those who love flowers. This is also a good place for photoshoots because every spot is Instagram worthy. I’m lucky to see giant sunflowers in full bloom even if it has been raining for the past few days. The only downside is the thick mud brought about by heavy rains but the sight of the lively sunflowers is enough to cheer you up. 

The farm is not too big but there is a burger stall inside the farm where you can have snacks after you tour the sunflower farm.

This is the first event sunflower farm that I’ve visited and hopefully, I’ll be able to visit other flower farms in Rizal. To more Rizal adventures soon!
