Sagada Orange Picking Details

It is a fact that there are more people Googling "Orange Picking in Sagada" than Rock Farm Inn and Cafe. It is not something that the owners should be concerned with but something that they should be proud of. Why?

That's right... Focus, my dear wife!

Rock Inn and Cafe are actually located in a part of Sagada that is quite isolated. As a matter of fact, the roads to the inn are unpaved and lack proper lighting. Therefore, the popularity of the orange picking activity brings customers to their doorsteps.

Oranges mania!

The Annoying Orange would surely hate this

Before I further tackle the orange picking activity, let's first check out the history of the place. The 9-hectare land where Rock Farm Inn and Cafe now stands was acquired by its owners way back in 1993. It was originally developed into an orange orchard which eventually gained popularity resulting in the construction of the inn that stands today.

Rock Farm Inn and Cafe, as its name suggests, has an inn and a cafe... 

Speaking of its inn, here are its accommodation rates.

Then there is the cafe... Cafe Bodega was launched in 2005. It has a rustic feel and offers an eclectic menu that is a must-try. 

Now for the highlight of Rock Farm Inn and Cafe -its orange orchard. The "citrusy" smell of the orchard gives early mornings a unique feel if you're staying in one of its rooms. You can avail of the orange picking/orange eat-all-you-can activity for only P50, the catch? You can only eat the oranges inside the orchard and you have to do so in only 30 minutes. 

We gotta pay for that.

If you can't get enough of the oranges and you want to bring some home, then tell the staff and she/he will give you a basket after your eat-all-you-can stint. Fill it up with as many oranges that you want and pay the amount after it has been weighed.

Here's a tip: Taste the fruit of every tree. Harvest and buy only from the tree that has fruits that suits your taste.

Overall, the orange picking / orange eat-all-you-can activity is a blast. My wife and I enjoyed it so much that we wanted to come back someday with a backup of professional orange eaters.

Sagada Orange Picking Admission Fee 

There is a 50 pesos/ head entrance fee that you need to pay to do the 30-minute orange picking and eat-all-you-can in the vicinity. Keep in mind that you can only eat the oranges inside the farm. You have to pay for the oranges that you will take home with you.
