Family Turns Bulacan Haven into a Leisure Farm

For a quick break from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis, couple Stephen and Amy Ustare escape to their farm in Pulong Yantok, Angat, Bulacan, whenever they can.

The husband and wife, both professionals in the field of software development, owned a farmhouse that has been a family vacation home for more than years.

“It has been a witness to a lot of family memories, reunions, and gatherings,” Amy said.

Amy said that, at first, she personally did not appreciate it much. But nature—the greenery and sounds of crickets and birds—grew on her and that’s when she started to appreciate the property. She described it as a fresh break from the noise and distractions in the city.

In 2016, they renovated the farm and decided to share the space with other people.

“Our family farm is a culmination of all the things we love and it was built to celebrate good food, as well as bonding with family and friends. We wanted to keep the family tradition and share our little piece of paradise with more people,” Amy shares.

The couple started accommodating guests in 2017 and they made sure that the farm will be able to meet their needs. They called it Ñumana Farm.

“The farm has naturally-grown fruits, and there are farm animal feeding activities for kids. There are also modern rustic vacation homes in the area to give off the ultimate cozy retreat for couples, families, and pets, as well,” Amy says.

Inside Ñumana Farms, there are two modern rustic vacation homes equipped with a fully-functional kitchen. There are over a hundred trees around the property and the couple developed around 1,000 square meters of the space for vegetables, such as lettuce, French beans, and more.

“It is our dream to really have a sustainable integrated space where we have a modern, tiny houses as accommodation, and a space to grow our own food which we can use to serve fresh local cuisine to our guests. Ultimately, we’d like our guests to create lasting memories, where they can go to the farm to relax and bond with their friends, loved ones, and fur-babies, as well.” Amy said.
