Northern Blossom Flower Farm in Atok is a must-visit. Let me tell you why.

IMPORTANT:  Following the Executive Order No. 09-2020 by Mayor Raymundo Sarac on lifting the temporary suspension on tourism activities, it is asked that all tourists, visitors, and guests visiting the municipality of Atok, to pre-register first at the designated registration area at PAOAY Barangay Hall in Sayangan, Paoay, Atok, Benguet for monitoring purposes. (NO PRE-REGISTRATION, NO ENTRY).

Do you love to eat cabbages? I do. With a pinch of salt and a few chunks of meat, it’s breakfast or lunch or dinner. Honestly, it’s one of the staple ingredients in most Igorot dishes as the province of Benguet produces thousands of kilos of cabbages per month.

You see cabbage everywhere in the market. I’ve seen green ones, violet ones, big ones, small ones, and dried ones but never have I imagined that there exist cabbage roses. What more is that the one producing it is the Northern Blossom flower farm in Atok which is only an hour away from our place.

I mean. Come on. Roses + Cabbages? Huh? Do they also have thorns? What color are they in?

All of these questions were answered when my sister and I visited the Northern Blossom flower farm in Atok, Benguet. Recently, it has gained popularity because of its cabbage roses. Since the place was near our hometown, we went to check it out.

There were flowers outside freshly picked ready for anyone to buy.

We were assigned a guide to tour us around the farm. I was pretty impressed, as we went from flower to flower, our guide filled us in with a lot of information.

The farm looked like any vegetable farm. The only difference is that they plant flowers instead of vegetables. There were snapdragons, rice flowers, dusty miller, alstroemeria, cabbage roses, delphiniums, and many others. If you want to learn more about flowers, in general, consider checking out the Green Pinky

By the time we reached the section of the cabbage roses, most were already harvested. From the farm, you’ll be able to see the neighboring mountains including Mt. Pulag.

I asked our guide if it’s possible to eat these beautiful cabbage roses. She said yes, but it’s not recommended as these are sprayed with lots of pesticides so yeah too bad, huh?

  2. Latest info since I just visited the place… the entrance fee is already 250p (from 100p)for adults and 50p for a child until 10 y/o. It’s cheaper to ride a bus because it’s only 85p but a van would cost 150p per head.
