Close Encounter with Rabbits at Robby Rabbitry

By 8:34 PM ,

I saw rabbits before but never in my life that I would be playing with them up close and personal -- not just 1 or 2 but more than 5.

It was fortunate for me to travel south particularly in Batangas with my travel group, The Road Trippers, and visit Robby Rabbitry.

I gathered with fellow TRTs Aylin (The Posh Traveler), JayL (Blog-PH) and Ann somewhere in Makati where we also met Robby Rabbitry's owner Gigi Morris. On our way to Batangas, Ms. Gigi Morris told us how she came about opening the farm. We also met up with ate Jinkee (Live Your Life to the Fullest), ate Gigi and Shekinah along the way..

Upon arriving at the farm, we were welcome with some refreshing drinks that I tasted for the first time..

The Robby Rabbitry practices responsible rabbit farming. Not only that they raise rabbits, these cute, furry animals are then served as different cuisine. No kidding! We went there not to play but to taste rabbit meat.

But at first, we never missed the chance to play with these furry creatures..
Ms. Gigi also toured us on what else to see at the farm..

turkey's paddock
And finally, the moment of truth.. Lunch time and part of the menu -- rabbit! A couple of dishes were served like porkchop, beef tapa except one - rabbit caldereta.

Aside from the rabbit farm, we also visited some of Ms. Gigi's friends' farms..
And of course, TRT wouldn't pass the chance for group photos..

Definitely enjoyed this once in a lifetime experience..

Direction to The Robby Rabbitry. Place is in Brgy Castillo, Padre Garcia, Batangas. Take SLEX all the way to STAR- exit Lipa. Take P. Torres St. (this is the only tricky part bcoz of some rerouting in Lipa) all the way to intersection going to Rosario and Tiaong. Turn left and take the one going to Tiaong (its the Batangas/Quezon rd). When you reach Brgy Castillo - on your right, keep an eye on a ricemill and Generoso Trading. You'll see a small waiting shed on the road going to the farm. Take that road and in about 500 meters you'll find a small farm with mango trees.

From Laguna, you can take the Maharlika Rd to Tiaong and took the road going to San Antonio/Lipa. We are the next town after San Antonio if coming from Tiaong.
