WS# 14: Ilog Maria

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.

  1. @Ebie: That was the first thing I picked up as well. 🙂

    @Mirage: Lucky you! So near nature. 🙂

    @Mauie: So do I and I’m feeling a sense of loss just thinking about it. 😦

    @tigerfish: Why not check their website, I know they deliver to other countries as well and I think their prices are quite reasonable. 🙂


  2. So true about the disappearance of Honey Bees. Reminds me of: Albert Einstein once said that, “if the
    bees disappeared, man would have
    only four years of life left”.


  3. I have heard about this when a friend of mine gave me some products from this farm. Unfortunately, I haven’t visited the place.

    Have a great week!


  4. I thought those bees are cultured so even if global warming is chnging the world, they won’t get as much as affected considering that they’re being cultivated/propagated. I would like to try their products.
