Description     The Farm wins AsiaSpa Awards for Spa Cuisine of the Year


On November 18, 2010, The Farm at San Benito, Philippines, a holistic healing destination spa, was awarded “Spa Cuisine of the Year” by AsiaSpa magazine. Establishing one of the first truly vegan restaurants in Asia, The Farm received the honor for consistently providing outstanding food showing visionary creativity in promoting healthy eating through “living” cuisine. Specifically, “Alive!” the Farm’s onsite restaurant serves predominately a raw organic vegetarian menu. To ensure the highest quality ingredients, the Farm maintains an organic garden that yields fresh produce and micro greens. The Farm’s dedicated Wheat Grass Bungalow supplies wheat grass for fresh juices and therapies.   The award highlights the Farm’s continued role as a leader in imaginative cuisine that tastes delicious, looks elegant, augments health and contains healing properties.


The Farm’s maverick manager, Michael Di Lonardo, is the spa’s resident visionary espousing an enthusiastic agenda to serve people alternative choices for wellbeing and healing. Mr. Di Lonardo explains, “"We all know that we are what we eat. I believe, however, it will take our collective focused forward thinking and heightened awareness to tap into the long-term emotional and physical rewards derived from beneficial living and eating. We are grateful to AsiaSpa Magazine for their continued support in our wellness crusade. “
