At El Rancho Delos Ben, every step we undertake has always been guided by the philosophy of uplifting the state of agriculture and its supporters in the Philippines. September has brought us even closer to that goal.
Here are some highlights in September:
- Acquisition of new silage chopper
On September 5, a new chopping unit for silage arrived on our doorstep.
- Natural Pig Farming seminar with ATI
El Rancho Delos Ben goes to Sta. Rosa, Nueva Ecija to learn about natural pig farming (with emphasis on “babuyang walang amoy”) for a seminar led by Dr. Doy Nakpil of Agricultural Training Institute (ATI).
- ATI accreditation
On September 21, we were officially accredited by the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) as a learning site. As an ATI learning center, people of all ages and lifestyles who share the same passion for agriculture can now take part in on-site seminars at El Rancho Delos Ben to enrich their knowledge of farming – an excellent way to connect people to farming and help bring back the passion for agriculture.
