Enchanted Farm (EF) Café

About the organization

Food that satisfies your palate and fuels the mission of Nation Building.

The café is a haven filled with gourmet cheeses, artisan chocolates, mouth-watering burgers and freshly-brewed coffee – all made from Philippine ingredients and crafted with the love and ingenuity of Gawad Kalinga’s community partners.

The cafe serves naturally-grown local produce from three major sources – (a) The Enchanted Farm in Angat Bulacan, which provides most of the fresh produce and special burger patties on the menu; and (b) existing social enterprises such as Gourmet Keso, Golden Egg, Happy Green, Hamlet, and Kape Maria, who provide both kitchen-use items and off-the-rack products.

What makes it a social enterprise?

The Enchanted Farm cafe is an advocacy cafe, led by Gawad Kalinga Center for Social Innovation, that bridges the Enchanted Farm, through its food and beverage, from Angat, Bulacan to the city market. It aims to raise social awareness by promoting home-grown business innovations that develop industry-competent local products while uplifting the lives of the poor.

The Enchanted Farm cafe is a not only social enterprise in itself but also serves as a social business platform that provides both the physical and creative space for social entrepreneurs to build, collaborate and develop their businesses.

The Gawad Kalinga Center for Social Innovation (GK CSI) is also a big stakeholder in the Enchanted Farm cafe as it serves as a support system for the cafe operation and business development. The cafe operations is also staffed with and maintained by residents of the nearby GK Villages, consequently creating an avenue for employment for them. The Enchanted Farm cafe operations is also heavily supported by the Gawad Kalinga (GK) and GK CSI Internship programs.
