Philippines is an agricultural country, but over the last two decades, the development of the agricultural sector has been stalled by industrialization and the growth of the knowledge industry. The agricultural land converted into residential land as well. I am afraid that one day there will be no more rice fields and parcel of land for planting crops and trees.
And in order to eat we will need to buy rice and organic fruits and vegetables from other countries.
I grew up in the province, in what they call hamlet. I was surrounded of rice fields and mountains. My family even raise domestic animals and domestic birds like chicken and ducks,
and other trees both non-bearing and bearing fruits. We plant tobacco, peanuts, beans and other edible crops.
I've always liked having my own backyard garden of flowers and vegetables. And even a farm and live in the modern bahay-kubo. Farming excites me! That's why I am still playing farming in Farm Town.
