LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – Is “Strawberry Fields Forever,” a possibility in Barangay Betag?

Rep. Ronald Cosalan is batting for the preservation of the Benguet State University-owned strawberry farms, but maintaining the farmland will only be made possible by amending the BSU Charter.

Cosalan earlier with BSU President Feliciano Calora Jr. to discuss the possibility of amending the institution’s charter to include a provision on the preservation of the strawberry farms.

The solon said the town was once called the “Salad Bowl of the Country” as the valley used to have massive farms of highland vegetables but lost its identity when structures were erected in the gardens and continued to mushroom through the years.

He said there should be no more structures to be put up at the strawberry fields, otherwise, the area may lose its identity as the “Strawberry Capital of the Philippines.”

The strawberry farm has been attracting tourists who go for strawberry picking and to buy by-products.

Gov. Crescencio Pacalso said the ongoing Strawberry Festival makes tourists aware that the town produces the strawberries, cutflowers, and vegetables.
