Once a sleepy barangay is now the permanent residence of the Silent Integrated Farm, a 6-month old farm with a great advocacy. This is the first DOT-approved agri-park which is situated at Brgy. Dagatan, Liliw, Laguna 4004 Liliw, Philippines and is owned by a very shy young lady entrepreneur, not even in her 30s.
The first thought that came to everybody’s mind was, why was it called Silent? Is it like the desolate and strange town of Silent Hill?! We never heard, no pun intended, of a farm which is silent because we imagine all the mooing of the cows, the cockadoodledoos of chickens, etc. Well, the answer is quite heartwarming and will make you admire their farm and their advocacy.
They are silently working to be part of the solution and is very passionate in recognizing the contribution of Persons With Disabilities (PWD), senior citizens, and community-based farmers in the pursuit of food security. The inspiration behind this is Kuya Michael Suerte, a farmer who is deaf. Though other co-workers expressed concern about working with him, the farm owner of Silent Integrated Farm saw beyond Michael’s disability and chose to focus on the fact that Michael needed a job. His disability did not hinder his efforts to earn and feed his wife, who is also deaf, and their two beautiful babies. While others make a lot of noise, Kuya Michael, works silently to be a productive individual in the community.
Silent Integrated Farm aims not only to be a sustainable and innovative farm tourism destination, serving as a learning center that produces good and healthy food, value adding crops, and cruelty-free animals but also would love everyone to enjoy a happy farming community.
