Where it all started
The owner, Michel J. Lhuillier, was driven to become a farmer, which is how the safari came to be. The strong calling of the land opened the door to meeting Danding Cojuanco, one of the country’s most successful farm and liquor moguls, who is a catalyst in the realization that there is really a huge opportunity in farming.
Despite his father’s discouragement to become one due to the financial pressures. Mr. Lhuillier, more commonly known as Senyorito/Nyorito, saved enough cash to acquire land and to begin growing fruit trees all around his home.
