Let’s take a break from Negros and head off to Silang, Cavite for now. On our way home from Tagaytay today, we passed a honeybee farm which has been on my radar screen for quite sometime now. A friend even swears by their products and regularly orders on-line. And me being a lover of all things natural and organic could not in the world pass this up could I?
Ilog Maria is a honey farm that produces a wide range of natural and organic honey-based products from beauty essentials, candles, and insect repellants to even products for ailments in which their Virgin Honey tops the list. Other products include Honey Cider Vinegar, Frozen Royal Jelly to even a sore throat spray.
Unfortunately, since Sept 2008, their Virgin Honey has not been available. Not only is natural honey seasonal, weather started to change and is no longer predictable. Blame it on global warming, bees are disappearing all over the world and this phenomenon has been called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). Honey has been scarce for Ilog Maria this year.
