The farmhouse is very accessible through a 500-m hop through a private road which opens up at the six-lane Pan-Philippine Highway. If operated as a bed-and-breakfast, there are lots of tourist areas nearby.
While the farmhouse sits in front, the back of the property is dedicated to the rice mill. During their stays at the house, the family found a business opportunity in buying palay from their neighbors and processing them into kitchen-ready rice.
As an entrepreneurial foreign-trained engineer, the seller brought in and assembled the machinery needed to operate a rice mill. Raw palay from the neighboring farms started to pour in, and they quickly outgrew their initial capacity. And so, they brought in more and bigger machinery to handle the demand.
At this time, the rice mill machines consist of the following:
• KANEKO-brand Rice Mill KRM Mark III (Single Pass) with Mitsubishi Diesel Engine
• China brand Multi-Pass Rice Mill with several accessory equipment
o Two Polishers
o Mitsubishi Diesel Engine
• Flat-bed dryer for palay
• Vertical dryer for palay
• Grain moisture meters
• Small Tractor
• 4-wheeler drop-side Mitsubishi COE Truck with powered lifter (GVWR: 3,000 kg)
All of the rice mill equipment is powered by biofuels, and the motors are run by Mitsubishi diesel engines and a 25kW diesel generator.
The equipment is housed in a 500-sqm open-sided barn with various areas, such as:
• Enclosed Rice Storage
• Open Storage Area for Palay
• Two Storage Areas for Ipa
• Sleeping Quarters for Workers
As a rice mill and rest house, there are several possible sources of revenue:
• Trucking service
• Drying service
• Milling service
• Selling packaged rice (bags)
• By-product can be used by organic pig farms and home gardening enthusiasts
o Day Tours
o B&B operations via AirBnB or Booking.com
The rice mill itself was previously featured in a national TV show. Moreover, they used to be a supplier for a big agricultural corporation supplying branded brown rice.
