It may be surprising to know that there is a strawberry farm in the South but, as for the climate in Tagatay, it is not impossible to have a farm like the ones in Baguio. Now, it is the newest attraction in Tagaytay. The Queens Strawberry Farm is an agri-tourism site situated in Alfonso, a few minutes away from Tagaytay. It is the very first strawberry farm in the South that will soon offer activities like strawberry picking and tilapia fishing for its guests. The farm is planted with 50,000 fruit-bearing strawberry plants using Vertical Farming and Aquaponics Technology.

3. There are also lettuce and other greens in vertical tubes for the restaurant’s use.
4. The Queens Strawberry Restaurant is relatively new and was still under its soft opening when we visit the place, and only a few visitors are inside. The restaurant has an A-frame cabin design with modern fixtures and lightings. It offers indoor and outdoor seating, located at the roof deck.
The indoor dining area is spacious, bright, and clean. Seating options are available like booths, high tops, and regular tables and chairs. They use impressive wood furnishings, wall decors, and ceiling lights.
A variety of food choices including all-day breakfast, plates of pasta, strawberry inspired desserts, salads, and milkshakes. Strawberry Taho is also available here for P60.00 only. The food served was good-tasting, satisfying, and priced just right. Serving dishes are colorful and stylish.
