Know Your Origin: Ifugao
Ifugao is a province of the Cordillera Administrative Region known for its majestic rice terraces, breathtaking views, world heritage sites and rich culture and tradition.
In the past the Ifugao were feared head-hunters, just as other tribes in the mountainous regions of northern Luzon. Many of the older Ifugao continue to live as their ancestors did. Some men still wear loincloths; and the practice of headhunting was given up only a few decades ago.
At present time, agriculture and farming are the principal means of livelihood in the province. Ifugao culture revolves around rice, that they even preserved their ancient harvest rituals and festivals. Aside from rice, the Ifugaos also used their land to farm other crops like vegetables and coffee.
Due to the current demand of coffee in the country, Ifugao farmers are now being encouraged and trained for coffee production. In farming, same as any other industry, continuous learning is very important.
Ifugao has a very good potential in growing and producing coffee. Being a part of the mountainous Cordillera region, weather condition and elevation profiles are ideal. Lush and fertile forests in Ifugao can provide bigger shades and nutrition to the coffee trees.
