The Farm - Alabang Hills

Hubby and I have been trying to incorporate more organic food into our diet, mostly, with our daily fruit and green juices. I bring some green juice at work daily, to increase up my nutrition intake.

Hubby and I wanted to try The Farm, a small restaurant located just at the entrance of Alabang Hills along West Service Road. The Farm serves various beef dishes, made from organic beef raised in their farm in Masbate. Philippine organic beef. I know, right? 

The Farm’s menu varies from organic steaks, organic bone marrow (so tempted to try this!), organic salads and a variety of burgers made from organic ground beef. They also serve vegan mushroom burger, for the non-meat eaters. Various smoothies are also offered.

Hubby ordered the rib-eye, which he really loved. It was cooked medium rare and the beef is very tender. No sauces are served when you order the steaks, I suppose it is to let you enjoy the full clean flavor of the beef.

We shared this Caesar’s salad, which was also nice and crisp. The dressing wasn’t too heavy nor overpowering, just the way we like it.

I had the avocado burger, organic burger patty with avocado (used as mayonnaise), with lettuce and alfalfa sprouts. I must say, I really liked this burger. Not too salty, very clean tasting, not greasy (since it’s grilled) and I could really savor the beef flavor. I’m not sure if I make any sense, but I don’t feel bloated after eating it.

Hubby and I also tried their smoothies. Hubby had the avocado smoothie, which he finished quite quickly. It has real avocados (obviously) with hardly, if any, milk in it, which was surprisingly good. I had the very berry smoothie, which had strawberries and blueberries in it. I liked it. Not too sweet, but a bit too much serving for me. I gave half of it to Hubby which he graciously accepted and finished in record time.  The smoothies were served in glass mason jars, which I thought was a nice homey touch.

The Farm also offers raw beef for you to take home. Which I think I will try next time, since our freezer was currently full when we visited.

The restaurant is small, and a little bit out of the way, but definitely worth a visit. The Farm is little bit pricey, yes, but well worth the money, in my opinion. I can’t wait to go back and try the other dishes on the menu. One day maybe, I’ll try the bone marrow, too J

We try to buy only organic meat; fish we get from astore that sells sustainable fish, caught by small boats. Pricier but worth it. It's your health!
