Add to your bucket list the Abra Sevilleja’s Farm - Best Destinations To Visit

Abra (Ilokano: Probinsia ti Abra; Tagalog: Lalawigan ng Abra) is a landlocked province of the Philippines in the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon. Its capital is Bangued, and is bordered by Ilocos Norte on the northwest, Apayao on the northeast, Kalinga on the mid-east, Mountain Province on the southeast, and Ilocos Sur on the southwest.

Abra for a long time had been a blank spot on the Philippine tourism map. It is often skipped due to news of killings and partly because of its location in North Luzon. It is sandwiched between two very popular tourist destinations - Ilocos in the west and the Cordilleras in the east. But now Abra is becoming one of the best tourist destinations with huge arrays to choose from, old churches, long bridges, mountain ranges, magnificent waterfalls, food and a lot more. 

SEVILLEJA'S FARM is a fruition of concerted prayers, aspirations, and a deep-seated vision from the Lord. An 18-hectare property situated at Barangay Abaquid, Danglas, Abra, SEVILLEJA'S FARM was birthed initially as a good retirement space for the couple Mr. and Mrs. Conrado and Anita Sevilleja and an avenue to expand God’s ministry in the municipality of Danglas. 

The Farm is subdivided into different sections to maximize its potential:

· Dragon fruit, being the main crop, appears to be the Farm’s main feature. The Farm deems to have pretty good investment stocks in this space. The plantation area alone is an estimate of 3-4 hectares, which has been divided into three different phases (Phase 1: 4 years old; Phase 2: 3 years old; Phase 3: 2 years old). Harvest season starts in May and ends in November. It has a total average yield of 12-15 metric tons of fruit per harvest season per year. 

· Papaya plantation in an approximate land area of 1 hectare, which just recently expanded in the last quarter of 2017.

· Forest trees in an approximate land area of 4 hectares, being preserved for future ventures. 

· Ipil-ipil trees in an approximate land area of 1 hectare. 

· Mango trees in an approximate land area of 1 hectare. 

· Coconut plantation in an approximate land area of 2 hectares 

· Other facilities and segments available on the Farm are: 

o Learning area for farmers who would like to learn more about agricultural practices (in partnership with Department of Agrarian Reform);

o Concreted access going to the Farm;

o Recreational facilities such as cabanas and a private pool which are meant for family gatherings, private functions, church activities, and the like. Cottages are also built for family visitors and crew on duty. Rooms are equipped with shower and comfort rooms. (Note: This area is currently not open to the public.);

o Fish Pond and Aquarium – Fish products are grown for personal consumption of the family;

o Vegetable plantation in an approximate land area of 0.5 hectares.

o Free parking slots for visitors. 

The Farm is powered using renewable solar energy using solar panels rated 3kW. It is used to power appliances, water pumps and other farm equipment at daytime and provides lighting and minimal entertainment (such TV, speakers, radios, and the like) during nighttime. 

Guests can also have short trekking and bushwalking within the farm area from the dragon fruit plantation to other suitable areas on the Farm.
