Miniature Donkeys At The Farm

Hey KaFarmilya, we have a fun update to “kickstart” our week! Another new Animal has been added to Farmcradle. It’s quite famous and is in fact a Hollywood star. Wild and funny as an actor, but quite cute and tamed in real life. It’s obvious when you see it and if you haven’t figured it out yet— here’s a giveaway Eddie Murphy!

No, Eddie Murphy isn’t an animal, but he voiced the cute-ugly yet lovable character of Donkey in the Shrek Movie! We got two new Donkeys in our farm, but not just any donkey, we got Miniature Donkeys! One is male with a white colour and black spots, the other is a female with an ivory coat and chocolate-coloured spots. They both look totally adorable and we’d like for you to see them!

But first, our mandatory NAMING CONTEST! Send us a name for each of our donkeys and the winner will get a Farmcradle Handmade Care Package!

Kalesa Ride

Farmcradle is bringing you down the memory lane with the luxurious ride from the “kalesa” or the “karwahe”. 

The kalesa is basically a horse drawn carriage, it was introduced to the Philippines in the 18th Century by the Spanish. It was the upper classes mode of transport, only the nobles and officials could afford the luxury of the Kalesa.

What is not to love about getting a ride inside the “kalesa” driven by our own Farmcradle kabayos. This is the perfect ride around the farm if you mind the long walk under the sun. While riding the kalesa, you can see the farm animals at an elevated height from the carriage, you can feel the rhythm of the moving carriage and hear the beat of the horse’s gait. Our kalesa ride is perfect for well-sought farm experience.

Aside from the kalesa ride, you can also try our ATVs, trampolines, a rope course, a Christmas Village, animal husbandry, vegetable gardening, and so many others! There are more than a handful of reasons why Farmcradle is an awesome destination for people with a variety of interests.

What’s Behind the Name and Logo of Farmcradle?

Our Farm Name

A brand’s name is what is remembered and is instilled on a person’s memory. For Farmcradle, there was so much careful thought that took place and there were a handful of other good options we had to decide against before we made the choice that we would take decades into the future.

“Farmcradle” is short, simple, easy to remember but is full of meaning. Cradle is an infant’s bed or crib, it protects a child, keeps her warm, and is a safe place for her to rest. Cradle is also the act of holding gently and protectively, just as a mother would her young infant or child. This ties into our practice of animal rearing, specifically the Paalaga or Paiwi System. We make sure that our animals live comfortably, live in strong, warm structures, are always well-fed and are taken care of with a human touch. Cradle is also how we treat our partners, employees, and the environment. There is always a personal touch, responsibility and fairness we wish our community to feel whenever they interact with us.

Indeed, Farmcradle embodies who we are as a people, who we are as a farm. 

Our Logo


A logo is a visual representation of an individual or company’s identity, reputation, and values. When you look at it, it should be able to effectively communicate the essence of the brand it represents. When we were envisioning Farmcradle’s Logo, we wanted it to embody who we are on top a design that looks attractive and modern.

The four animals—cattle, goat, chicken, and pig—represents our main operations in livestock production. The blue sky represents clear skies and a bright future ahead. The cradle represents a home for our animals and at the same time it ties up with Noah’s Ark which gathered different animals, in all shape and form, and kept them safe from the storms and the great flood that ensued. 

Local. Natural. Sustainable.


Our three taglines are an extension of Farmcradle.

Farmcradle champions Local Farming. We partner with Filipinos both living in our country and abroad, we hire people who reside near our community, we tie up with other local farmers in our province, and as much as possible we acquire goods from local suppliers. More importantly, we sell our products locally. 

Natural is how we do our farming. We do not inject our animals with growth hormones nor have them go thru unnecessary medications. We also feed them 100% grass and corn. Our herb and vegetable production is also done thru natural methods making use of natural and organic fertilizers and smart farming to help them grow as healthy as their mass-produced counterparts. 

Sustainability is an ongoing challenge that Farmcradle and many of our country’s farms face. Together, our goal is making not only our company’s operations sustainable, but have an overflow of abundance to be able to contribute to the food security of our country—making us and our country as a whole, able to sustain its people.

Why Agri-Investments Are Both A SMART & COOL Choice



1. Livestock Agriculture in the Philippines has grown exponentially during the last 4 years alone thanks to the DV Boer Farm Enterprise. In this short time period, DVBF has been able to partner and create more than 90 other Subfarms thruout Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao-proof that it’s not just a trend, but people are willing to do this for the long term. 
2. Meat & Vegetable Produce will always have a demand. With the growing population of Filipinos, there is more to feed, and the demand for our products will grow along with it. Hence, you can be sure that Agri will never go out of trend!
3. It’s a tangible investment. People who partner with Farms can visit and see for themselves the animals, structures & improvement that are present with their partner farm. With Money Market Products, you cannot see where your investment is going – you wait and hope for the best outcome; with Agri-investments, you don’t only see where your capital goes, you can literally touch, eat, & experience them! 


1. Ever heard of #AgriCoolTure? Gone are the days when Agri is thought of as rural, boring & traditional. Advanced & integrated farms such as Farmcradle now have Exotic Animals, a Hydroponics garden, soon a Butterfly Sanctuary, & so much more. Farms now are attractive tourist spots and are great locations for team building, family & barkada trips, and could even serve as a nature sanctuary. 
2. Want to express your love of country? Partner or invest with our farms! For one thing, you are helping provide employment for thousands of farmers across the nation. Our farmers are given all the benefits of a regular employee in big corporations and more! We ensure that your investment goes to uplifting the lives of our kababayans (not to mention our contribution to food security) and that is certainly worth being proud of.
3. Part of our advocacy is to educate our kababayans all about agriculture. With Farmcradle, we make sure that we bring you smart, funny, and interesting information about farming which you can teach and share with others. As they say, #smartisthenewsexy or in our case, #smartissupercool!

Millennial Farmers in Agriculture

Farming is among the world’s oldest professions. In a 2013 study of Philippine Agriculture, it showed that ages of farmers averaged 57 years old and our country faced a critical shortage of farmers in 15 years. How then will we face the challenge of food shortage evident by the extreme increase in food prices as of late?

A year after that study was published, Dv Boer Farm was founded. Now, in 2018, after merely four years, DVBF was able to establish another 90 plus Subfarms all over the country. And among the greatest impact of DVBF and its Subfarm, is its pursuit and success in hiring more of Millennial-aged agriculturists and farmers.

Millennials are those born between 1982 and 2002, their age ranges from 36 to 16 years old (note that the age range may be different depending on your source). Because of the modern and socio-entrepreneurial character of DVBF, Farmcradle and fellow Subfarms, its utilization of social media, and having fair and attractive salaries, we are able to hire more MIllennials into our fold. In Farmcradle alone, we have more than 70 millennial-aged employees. We’ve been hiring fresh graduates aged 20-21 years old and will continue to hire the younger generation of farmers as we grow.

At Farmcradle, we, in fact, have a preference for Millenials to come and join our fold. Millennials are more efficient and rely more on technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship. They speak their mind, are more passionate and sociable, and have a greater influence on their community because of social media. We then make use of these strengths to spread knowledge about farming and attract other younger #farmers to join.

But aside from these facts, let’s hear what some of our youngest hires have to say about why they chose Agriculture and Farmcradle:

“Noong una po kasi mama ko po ang namili ng aking kurso, pero nung napasok ko na at naexperience ko na, ganoon pala kaimportante at kasaya ang pagtatanim. Sa agriculture, tayo pala ang pinakafoundation bago ang lahat ng courses kasi saatin nangggaling lahat – damit, pagkain, gadgets (copper), housing, cosmetics etc. halos lahat galing sa Agriculture. At hindi dapat nila “Lang” or binabasta basta ang Agriculture. Pinili ko ang Farmcradle dahil sila ang unang nagbigay ng opportunity para ishowcase ang mga nalalaman ko at talento ko sa pagtatanim. Masaya ako kasi marami rin akong kaibigan na kasama ko sa trabaho at alam ko marami pa ako matututunan dito sa FCB.”
