Sta. Ignacia is a third class municipality where agriculture is the main livelihood of its people, the land planted mostly to rice. Relying largely on rains during the southwest monsoon season, and the absence of land irrigation, once a year cropping is the norm.
The farm is part of the estate of Don Francisco Milla, Sr., an alcalde mayor of Sta. Ignacia in the early 1900’s during the American Commonwealth years; the estate being planted to rice for three generations using conventional methods. But, fortunately so, it has several areas that have been virgin and untouched. Reina Helena Farms sits in one of those lots.
What makes it an ideal site for free-range poultry farming is its relative isolation.
1. It is not within known migratory bird routes.
2. There is no poultry within a five kilometer radius.
3. Wind flow to the area is predominantly southwest and northeast while poultry farms are in the southeast- pestilence is minimized.
4. The pronounced dry season between December to May practically serves as a natural barrier to microbial growth that could potentially undermine productivity.
5. Its location in the middle of the Central Plains of Luzon exposes it to the desiccating effect of the dry northeast winds between December and May, naturally breaking the life cycle of pathogens.
6. It has its own water source at 10500 liters per hour, making planting year-round feasible, considering that Reina Helena Farms prefers fodder from fresh plant source.
