Ces Drilon & Ricky Carandang’s Vagabond Farms Moringa Products Makes Consuming the Superfood a Delight

January 29, 2019

Broadcast journalist Ces Drilon and former news anchor Ricky Carandang set up Vagabond Farms in 2017 to “provide people with healthy, tasty, natural food.” One of the most obvious crops for them to start out with was moringa, or malunggay as it is known locally. Easy to grow and high in nutrients (especially iron, protein, potassium, calcium, and vitamin C), moringa is known as a local superfood.

In line with their health advocacy, Vagabond Farms (which is based in Batangas) only grows their moringa organically. Drilon and Carandang also partnered up with local artisans, providing them with moringa from their farm, to create delicious food products that use high-quality, natural ingredients to complement the health benefits of the superfood.
