How Rice is Still Planted by Hand in the Philippines

We are in the lush, green mountains of Barangay Bayyo, Bontoc where the picturesque rice terraces thrive and grow. For generations, the Ibayyo people hold a sacred relationship with the land that they live in, and we were fortunate enough to be invited by a local to witness the rice planting process from start to finish. 

Khachiw, Tapuey, and Safeng—these are the treasures that await us on our journey. We’re going on an epic adventure with our host and guide, Tatay Dionisio, who generously shared the beautiful sights and flavors of his home with us on this once in a lifetime experience.
