On a middling land located in Cavite, Philippines, a charmed flora of Thai greens are being cultured with proud adornment.

Power couple and restaurateurs, Orvin & Sigrid Sayos, find bliss in their abundant crops.

The growing demand from their business, Lime and Basil Thai Restaurant, encouraged them to carefully learn about bringing the crops in their own backyard.

Organic farming is not easy. It takes a lot of patience to succeed in cultivating a single plant. Oftentimes, crop supplies don’t last much that’s why a back-up plan should always be in tow. No wonder most enterprises find no time in engaging with this kind of option, opting to buy instant and chemically-treated choices instead.
