We’d like to take a moment and celebrate one of the great discoveries of this work: saging bulkan. Not that we discovered it of course, it was just offered to us in Capas where according to the farmers, it showed up after Mt Pinatubo erupted. “Tastes like a creamy saba” says bea. Best enjoyed on a fat slice of @manilabake chubby milk loaf slathered with dulce de leche or a dollop of @inanutshell unsweetened peanut butter and Ritual cacao nibs. Or raw, in which case do not be fooled by appearances. The thin skin may look bruised but just tastes sweeter as the peel darkens. For a rich and decadent expression of this local lagkitan, try Purple Yam Malate ‘s banana caramel ice cream!

What Makes our Gulay Special?

Buying local, seasonal and organically grown produce means that you learn to eat with the seasons, and in exchange, get to eat produce that’s filled with nutrition and that tastes more alive.  Food that's flavor-packed, bursting with nutrients, and free from nasties like chemical pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.

Our customers also love our cherry tomatoes and saging bulkan, varieties you won’t be able to get through conventional farming and mass-produced marketing channels.

Your commitment to eat healthy meets our farmers' commitment to grow nutritious food- and together we grow a sustainable food system. Taste the difference with us and let’s change the world with food!
