Freshest. Finest. First. A Day at Gourmet Farms...

Long before organic, farm-to-table and bean-to-cup became part of the mainstream, a pioneering farm in Silang planted the seeds for the now popular culinary movement...


Since the early eighties, Gourmet Farms introduced the novel organic, bean-to-cup and farm-to-table concepts to a local market hungry for new and unique dining experiences.

What started as a roadside diner along General Aguinaldo Highway in Silang has now grown into one of the country's premier producers of gourmet local coffee, organically grown green produce, fresh herbs, indigenous herbal teas and a variety of salad dressings, sauces and dips.
