Another day, another celebrity farm tour. Jessy Mendiola gave fans a tour of her mother-in-law's (Vilma Santos-Recto) farm in Lipa, Batangas. In case you didn't know, this is one of the places she and husband Luis Manzano considered for their wedding venue. This spot, to be exact:


When asked why she decided to build a farm, Vilma said, "Dream ko talaga magkaroon ng farm, 'yong may mga tanim, 'yong meron kang naha-harvest, may mga birds, may mga hayop. Talagang 'yon ang dream ko, matagal na..."

She also credited her husband, Senator Ralph Recto, for the work to make her dream come true: "'Yon 'yong ginawa ni Ralph. Siya lahat iyan, in fairness to him. Ito yung regalo ni Ralph. Siya ang may idea ng lahat na ito. Basta gusto ko farm para may time to relax." They have a lot of animals at the farm: cows, peacocks, lovebirds, and more.



Here's the complete tour of Vilma Santos' farm in Lipa, Batangas:
