Ilog Maria Honey Bee Farm or simply “Ilog Maria” is situated along Emilio Aguinaldo Highway in Silang, Cavite. It is known for its honey (of course) and other organic products. I went there with my aunt to buy a citronella spray for mosquitoes; and also for me to feature something here. Hahaha!
Whenever I go there, I just visit the shop to buy something that interests me and I’m done. But I decided to be a tourist (in my own home town) to know what can this farm offer us aside from their shop.
The shop is okay. You’ll see a lot of products from different kinds of soaps to candles made from beeswax. If you are looking for a product that is organic, handmade, and has honey in it, there’s a big chance that you’ll see it there.Some of the products you’ll see in Ilog Maria Honey Bee Farm are soaps, honey cider, beeswax, extra virgin honey, bee propolis, bee pollen, mosquito repellent, beeswax candle, and a lot more.
At the back of the shop, you’ll be able to see the mini factory where they make some of their products like the soap. The place was so open that you can see and observe how they make their products. Visitors aren’t allowed inside though.I walked further down and I saw these fantastic “stingless” bees. Who knew that stingless bees exist in this world?!? I had a chance to observe them closely. They looked like black ants with wings.
They also have a museum-like area in this farm. In this place, you’ll be able to observe bees in their respective beehives. Some facts about the Farm and the bees are also present here.
Ilog Maria has a wonderful history. Check out Ilog Maria’s about page to know its history.
