BAYONG PAGASA KABAYAN EDITION. We’re going to pass the ball to the gentle farmers of Kabayan town in Benguet. They are going to prepare our BAYONG PAGASA, 10 kilos of assorted first class highland vegetables in a native bayong. We’ve chosen this group of farmers for two reasons. One, Kabayan is the land of the best cauliflower and broccoli, two very exquisite vegetables that require different temperatures. They have Mt. Pulag for cold-thriving broccoli and the valley for heat-thriving cauliflower. Two, which is just important, we would like to help these farmers to help them recover from a huge cancelled order last week from a bogus buyer. A Baguio-based online trader had them harvest a full ton each of different vegetables. When this huge order was aggregated by many different farmers, the trader disappeared from the radar and suddenly stopped receiving the hapless farmers’ calls and many SMS’s. It seems like he found another source and he conveniently forgot to inform. “Ipaubaya na lang natin sa Diyos,” was all the farmers could say to themselves.
This Bayong Pagasa will be a good one. Following the success of last week’s Crate Hope Sagada Edition, the farmers of Kabayan are excited to show us what they got. They are motivated from last week’s fiasco. And WE TRUST THEM. We have a good standing relationship with these farmers over the course of many Rescue and regular buys. The list they gave us in impressive, containing some items not available in last week’s Crate Hope. The vegetables are the following: Cauliflower, Broccoli Rolled, Carrot, Potato, Cabbage, Sayote, Eggplant, Tomato and Baguio Beans. The price they gave us is very reasonable. P1,000 for all these, and that already includes the price of the Bayong which we shall source from the weavers of Brgy. San Isidro, Luisiana, Laguna.
WE ARE HEREBY DECLARING BAYONG PAGASA KABAYAN EDITION OPEN! We’re looking for 100 Rural Rising members to help us help the gentle indigenous farmers of Eddet, Kabayan, Benguet by getting a BAYONG PAGASA or two, and pay only P1,000.
