MANILA -- A strawberry farm has become a new tourist destination in southern Cebu.

Located in the mountainous barangay of Maloray in the town of Dalaguete, the 1.5-hectare farm has over 6,000 strawberry plants planted inside green houses.

It was in 2014 when the Rebalde family started to plant strawberries.

At first, it was just a test to see if strawberries could grow in their area until the plants bore fruits.

They opened the farm to the public last January and with a P50 entrance fee, visitors can enjoy taking photos and picking strawberries.

The farm also sells fresh-picked strawberries for P800 per kilo and strawberry jam for P150 per bottle.

The strawberry farm is open every Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
