“Farm Resort”

Farm Resorts are farms that offer accommodation and dining

services, for the purpose of participating in or enjoying interactive on-

farm activities and other attractions offered to enrich the tourists’ farm

life experience.1

Agri-tourism - or also referred to as “farm tourism” is a form of

tourism activity conducted in a rural farm area which may include

tending to farm animals, planting, harvesting and processing of farm

products. It covers attractions, activities, services and amenities as

well as other resources of the area to promote an appreciation of the

local culture, heritage and traditions through personal contact with the

local people.


The project calls for a plan upon 2.5 hectares (25,000 sq. meters)

of land that will bring together a private house, machinery zone,

animal grounds, agricultural fields and resort accommodations such as

conference center, food and beverage outlets, suites, swimming pool

and basketball court.

The target market for this project is the general public, especially

people who frequently visit the bus terminals and rest areas of Sison as

they travel to and from Baguio and Manila.

Sison, Pangasinan.

The lot is declared in the name of Emiliana Velasco, through Tax

Declaration No. 009-00020, with an area of twenty-five thousand

(25,000) square meters. The Declaration of Real Property is currently

filed under RA 7160.

The site consists of alluvial clay soil and igneous rocks,

originating from the sedimentation of the Cordillera mountain range,

covered with brush vegetation and various trees on its parameters.2

furnishing, size, decorations, color, finishing and lighting are

elegantly designed to create the proper ambience regardless of

the hotel size.

Administration Area

business transaction areas, safety time deposits, foreign

exchange counter, communication facilities, etc. are also

incorporated in it.


All single and double rooms have a floor area of not less

than 18 sq. m. inclusive of bathrooms.

designed to ensure the efficiency of operation and shall be equipped,

easily maintained, and adequately ventilated and lighted.

Some undesirable economic aspects of tourism are higher prices

and economic instability. Because of the additional demand and/or

increased imports, tourist purchases may result in higher prices in a

destination area. This would mean that local residents, too, would

have to pay more for products and services.
