I've asked my fiance about this and she really is not sure of locations there in Philippines.

I am looking for a similar land to that of Kentucky's. I am looking for a house, with land enough to farm vegetables and fruits, in a nice rural province that is safe. I heard many of the rural provinces in Mindanao are not safe... She said that she has family who lives in a town called Mabini there Mindanao. She said there is a population of less than 1,000 there. Shes been there before as a child and really knows nothing more about it.

I am looking for a rural province, about 30 minutes to 1 hour away from a city... nice and safe for my fiance and I... where i can farm vegetables and fruits in peace. Does anyone have any ideas? Maybe close to Cebu? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

How about in Baguio City? It's a mountain you with a nice cool weather and perfect place to do some farming. ~~~

Water will be a factor in Baguio or lack of it the farming area's are in Southern Luzon starting at Calamba and working your way south, Calamba Laguna is one of the larger cities and its crowded but has the American restaurants, malls in this area, there are others but they lack many things, I wouldn't go any farther than Pasanjuan Falls area it gets desolate, I prefer the Pagsujuan Falls area though, the lake is nice and cost of living is very low, your minutes from a Mall and Macdonald's but KFC and Pizza hut will be about 30-40 minutes.

Best way is to use Google Earth and take a look for yourself, living next to the very large lake has its advantages when it comes to water and using deep wells, living in Baguio will be much cooler but i'm sure more expensive, if money's not an option then Baguio would be nice.

Haven't counted all the Papaya tree's in my front, side and backyard but it's probably close 60, I lost many tree's to floods though, I'm water front property, if you set yourself back just a block from the Lake you can do just about anything, fruits trees, pigs, chicken, duck, turkey, goats, I have raised all of these.

Once you get to know and get along with your neighbors there shouldn't be anyone taking your stuff, we had a couple of kids one time walk through the back, we have no fence and grab a couple papaya's, that was our only loss, most of your neighbors will also have tree's and animals so everybody watches and they are doing the same thing saving money by growing and raising also.
