It was started as a meadows. Trees were just minimal though the place has its natural beauty, it was still not enough to prove its special distinctness.
Many years goes by, I visited the place. I was then amazed how it turned into a beautiful place full of trees, streaming water and birds singing. I then decided to preserve and develop it into a tourist spot where people will embrace the exhilarating views that will surely take their breath away. (Source)
The business of ostrich farming in the Philippines began in 1996. It was started by Lorenzo U. Limketkai, an engineer, and his son Heintje Limketkai. The Limketkais established their ostrich farming business and named it as the Philippine Ostrich and Crocodile Farms, Inc., becoming the first combined ostrich and crocodile farm in the country.
Their ostrich farm was opened in Barangay Malanang, Opol. They bought their first three pairs of breeding ostriches from Australia in July 1996. The first ostrich egg that was laid on August 30, 1996, but the hatching failed. After improvements were made to the facilities and to the egg-handling techniques, a live ostrich chick hatched for the first time in February 1997. Afterwards, the Limketkais bought two additional groups of breeding ostriches from Texas, United States. The business later opened its facilities “to the public for supervised tours”.
The first ostrich, as a product, was harvested and prepared as meat for fine dining restaurants on December 23, 1997, under the Big Bird Ostrich Meat brand. After that, thirty ostriches were routinely harvested on a monthly basis for supermarkets and deli shops.
