“If you have reached your goals, try to help others achieve theirs, sharing your knowledge and blessings in life will give meaning and purpose to your business.”
Alagang Sonya. It started literally as the food directly from Sonya’s garden. With a green thumb who lived in Europe for 10 years, what started as a weekend gathering of her friends, now is a venue of the sweetest weddings and memorable milestones for Filipinos. Changing her lifestyle, she avoids eating meat and enjoys plant- based food from the plot to the plate. Then, her friends started to visit week after week to get a dose of her delicious organic vegetables. Hearing them rave about her delectable menu coming straight from her garden, this inspired Sonya to open her garden to the public. Year 1998 when she started her very own business with the aim of promoting healthy living and wellness, starting from herself to her employees and ultimately extending to her customers. Sonya’s Garden serves freshly picked veggies, does not serve processed food and ensures accommodations are environmentaly friendly.
Together we succeed! Literally, Sonya’s has lived up to this motto. She has taken care of her employees—too much that her employees were treated as families and has always been a part of Sonya’s Garden’s expansion and success. She has also made it a point to employ people from around the neighborhood, a gesture that is very much appreciated by the whole community.
Though there has been a lot of Bed & Breakfast around Tagaytay, Sonya’s Garden remained true to its promise – to serve food from its own farm to your table. Going around the property, you will be able to get a glimpse of the many organic vegetables being served on your table.
