You Can’t Go Wrong With Agriculture Investment

I used to work for a corporate firm (8am to 5pm job), having been expose to almost all sorts of office task including earlier background on visual design and advertising.  But after more than 10 years in office duties, I decided to shifted to commodity trading after I went to Singapore on 2005 (mentored by a Singaporean).  My start was a sort of trial and error (e.g. crude oil, scrap metal, seafoods, agricultural products, etc.).  Later I concentrated on agriultural products primarily on cavendish banana and rice as I seem to fit on it.  As others have said, “you can’t go wrong if you are happy with what you are doing and/or if you invest in agriculture.”

above image is a ripe cavendish banana

I just tried on offering bananas as per request of an acquaintance business woman.  In a matter of one week, I my self could not believe that a Lebanese client arrived and asked me to book himself and his wife to a five star hotel in the Manila.  After few a few day talks and presentation, my client handed me advance downpayment in cash (US$). Weeks later, my partner were shipping containers of Cavendish Bananas to Jeddah, Dubai UAE, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Egypt and other Middle East countries.   Little did I knew then that exporting bananas is a profitable venture and has been highly demanded mosly in the Middle East.  At times, you need not seek buyers because they always come seeking sellers like you as what happened to me.  But be careful as there are also lots of scammers in this business.  Beside Middle East, other countries also import Philippine Cavendish bananas as it is one of the most favored in the world.

If you knew the farm in Mindanao, you will be surprise how large the plantation is and continue to supply though importers  demands are getting bigger and bigger as times goes by.  It’s just that I noticed something… price at times could not be controlled or lowered because capitalization for operation is too limitted.  Unless a foreign investor is willing to joint venture with us.

I am a partner to highly credible former managers of known global brands.  Our skills and years of experience in this business is very reliable but the investment is our limitation to be highly competitive.  Let me show you some photos…

Cavendish Bananas from Philippines

Philippines is the home of one of the finest and most delicious cavendish banana exported throughout the world (including golden pineapple and many tropical fruits). Most of us, knows Del Monte, Dole, Chiquita and other Fruit brands. What we don’t know is most of them are just imported from the Philippines. Though I won’t deny that there are other countries who also now export this variety of banana. It’s just that we are one of the pioneer and one of the largest exporter. Below is an actual farm to loading processes and procedure (operational photos directly at Davao Philippines): Afterwhich, banana shipment from Davao Philippines are shipped via sea freight delivery (loading port to destination port). Upon reaching its destination, the bananas are still to be stored in a ripening chamber for days then it will be delivered to various distributor and retailer in many nations. Cavendish banana has unlimitted supply and a day will not be enough to travel and sight see within the plantation. This is not a joke. Would you belive that many of the famous brands only get buy their bananas in the Philippines, and in other competing nations. If you are interested to imort or invest, we can help you. We both have the capacity to supply and offer farm lands.

Vicky Wallace and Her Bee Farm in Bohol

Image is excerpt from Google Images

Who would have thought that a high earning US base Filipino Nurse and a mother would trade all she owned in America, in exchange of her one chance to establish a community building organic farm in Bohol Philippines.  Better known as Bohol Bee Farm.

The lady in the spot light is “Vicky Wallace,” a New York based nurse-turned-farmer.”  I loved what she said…

“You make good money in the States but you have to ask yourself what is it all about.”   I had three jobs. I hardly saw my kids. So after the school year there ended, I brought them here.”

She also said that returning to the Philippines to start a business was one of the best decisions she made in her life.

Rough Start for Vicky

As always, the non-traditional are the ones persecuted for their unorthodox vision.  It was when Vicky’s husband died in 1988.  She began to rethink of her priorities as a mother and in life.  As mentioned, it wasn’t an easy decision to make.  Nonetheless, Vicky was firm on her decision, no matter what other people said.  Let me quote her mother’s own words, , ‘Why are you dragging your kids to the Philippines, ‘as if it was a bad thing,” she relates.   Good thing Vicky did not give up.  Now, Bohol Bee Farm is a blessing not just to her family but to the whole province of Bohol as it also attracts tourist and it branch out to other possibilities and entrepreneurial opportunities.  Let me again quote another words of Vicky…

“But I never regretted my decision. What kept me going was the thought that I didn’t want to live a life where my children grew up not knowing who I was because I was always working, and later their children would grow up the same way.”

“What kept me going was the thought that I didn’t want to live a life where my children grew up not knowing who I was because I was always working, and later their children would grow up the same way.”

Vicky bought lands where she invested some of her earned money, of which they settled in of it.  She started selling vegetables to her children’s classmates. Later the parents married to foreigners went to the farm themselves and harvest their preferred vegetables. She also expanded to homemade bread.  Her success in homemade bread starts when she baked breads that suits customer’s tastes.  She observed that foreigners don’t like it sweet.  In the contrary, locals love their kamote bread, which is slightly sweeter.  Bee Farm’s herb bread is a hit to foreigners and hopes to win Filipinos tastes soon.  There’s no stopping this lady as she also offered muffins and crafts, something she learned in the US.

OLD KANO – FROM FARM ANIMALS TO ORGANIC FARMING

One thing I like about National Geographic and Discovery Channel is their highly informative exploration in almost all aspects of human lives and the environment.  But still, they could not tell it all as this world alone is too big for a show as theirs.  Hope with this site of mine, I was able to relay some of the not so famous places I visited.   Thus, in my own way I could pay tribute as well to some pioneers in their own fields.

At this point, allow me to uncover an organic farm in Silang, Cavite Philippines (near Tagaytay City) named, “Old Kano.”

Google map link: hhttp://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=SILANG+CAVITE+PHILIPPINES&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=25.565517,56.513672&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Silang,+CALABARZON,+Philippines&t=h&z=11

The word “Kano” is a colloquial term for American.  I would like to show some of the pictures I’ve taken before I proceed…

Allow me to tell you the story.  Old Kano farm has a total lot area of 12,747 square meters along the province of Silang Cavite Philippines.  The couple Mrs. Julieta and the late Mr. Fred Ammann owned this farm.

The couple actually started in Caloocan City (Metro Manila) where their actual business is selling of rabbits, turkey and other farm animals to some restaurant businesses in Manila.  If I were not mistaken, the couple acquired the farm lot to expand their business they started in Caloocan.  By that time, the Old Kano farm was not yet as known today. As days goes by, Fred Ammann started to sow some plot of “Dill” (exotic herbs) out of plain hobby.  As this farm is along the way to the famous tourist destination Taal volcano view at Tagaytay City, an unexpected visitor one day came and he simply could not ignore the bed of “Dill.”   He is Mr. Werner Berger.  He bought some and asked how many he could grow.  Mr. Berger came back but this time he brought with him the head chef then of Manila Peninsula, Mr. Alfred Moser.  The man did not just order 30 kgs of dill every week but ask what else he grow.  Mr. Fred handed a seed catalog to Chef Moser.  The rest is history.

Out of a Mr. Fred’s plain hobby turned into a chance of a life time.  Although not that big as what others have made, Mr. Fred sow more that a seed of dill but a legacy of practical organic farming in the Philippines that could sprout into more bigger and high modern organic farms in this land.

Now, Old Kano farm has abandoned farm animal selling and only produces a lot of salad crops, edible flowers and some exotic vegetables produced exclusively at the farm.  They supply to many hotels and restaurants mostly in Metro Manila.

Old Kano was the pioneer on organic farming.   Some of their offer are as follows: green ice, romain, lolo rosa, red lettuces, tatsoi, mizuna, cucumber, new zealand spinach, baby carrots, endive, french beans, kohlrabi, red raddish, cherry tomatoes , turnips tokyo, and stripped egg plants.   Among the 18 varieties of herbs they produce are purple basil, sweet basil, cilantro, dill, marjoram, mint, Italian oregano, Italain parsley, arugula, rosemary, sage, sorrel, mexican tarragon, thyme, thai pepper, the habanero pepper, the cayenne.  Their also produce tatsoi fine leaves, mizuna fine leaves, rocketa fin leaves, fennel fine leaves, kohlrabi fine leaves, sorrel fine leaves, mesclun leaves mix with lettuce leaves, mustard and radish sprout.

I was able to talk to one of the worker.  I admire how they continue what Mr. Fred’s legacy under Mrs. Julieta (Mr. Fred’s wife).  I fell in love with this farm though you could see how time has dilapidated many of the facilities.  How I wish I could acquire this Old Kano farm to continue the vision of Mr. Fred and elevate it into the next level.  I am more than willing to joint venture with an foreign partner with knowledge in farm technology advancement to put up both a farming school and modern farm as what Kim Yong Ki has done to Canaan Farm-School in South Korea without forgetting the vision of Mr. Fred.  I know I could improve its façade to make it also friendly for visitors and tourist as it is also done in Thailand and in other known agri farms.  Global commodity trading is now pointing to organic so this and other farms is sure winner if given the right investment and improvements.

Happy Mother’s Day!

In the U.S. Mothers’ Day is a holiday celebrated on second Sunday in May. It is a day when children honor their mothers with cards, gifts, and flowers. First observance in Philadelphia, Pa. in 1907, it is based on suggestions by Julia Ward Howe in 1872 and Anna Jarvis in 1907.

Although it wasn’t celebrated in the U.S. until 1908, there were days honoring mothers even in the days of ancient Greece. In those days, however, it was Rhea, the Mother of the gods that was given honor.

Later, in the 1600’s, in England there was an annual observance called “Mothering Sunday.” It was celebrated during Lent, on the fourth Sunday. On Mothering Sunday, the servants, who generally lived with their employers, were encouraged to return home and honor their mothers. It was traditional for them to bring a special cake along to celebrate the occasion.

In the U.S., in 1908 Ana Jarvis, from Grafton, West Virginia, began a campaign to establish a national Mother’s Day. Jarvis persuaded her mother’s church in Grafton, West Virginia to celebrate Mother’s Day on the anniversary of her mother’s death. A memorial service was held there on May 10, 1908 and in Philadelphia the following year where Jarvis moved.

Jarvis and others began a letter-writing campaign to ministers, businessmen, and politicians in their quest to establish a national Mother’s Day. They were successful. President Woodrow Wilson, in 1914, made the official announcement proclaiming Mother’s Day a national observance that was to be held each year on the 2nd Sunday of May.

Many other countries of the world celebrate their own Mother’s Day at different times throughout the year. Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, and Belgium celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May, as in the U.S.

Pampers On Hot Seat

It was reported that the Leading diaper brand Pampers had a recall order regarding their Dry Max technology.  It was mentioned that the chemical within the diapers caused chemical burns and rashes to babies.  In the contrary, Procter and Gamble disagree in line with their claim that there is no proof to negative reports. A pediatric dermatologist backed this up, claiming that this new diaper is better than the earlier version and poses no risk.  But Procter and Gamble promised immediate pull-out of their concerned diaper brand if they found valid reason to do so.

For complaints and remarks about this matter, concerned parents are urged to report to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission hotline at 1-800-638-2772
