Baguio City has so many places of interest and tourist destination. One would be the Good Shepherd Convent located just beside another tourist spot - Mines View Park. The Good Shepherd Convent was known in the early days as a rehabilitation center for girls that have lost their way in life. It is being run by Sisters of the Good Shepherd.
Right now it is a flourishing place and is making exceptionally well. Their produce are Peanut Brittle, Ube jam, Strawberry and Blackberry/Blueberry jam. The place has developed into a virtual production plant of the said products. There was never a time I visited the place as early as 7 a.m. that there were no visitors. Many local tourists do not fail to buy goods before leaving for their respective cities or provinces.
The Peanut Brittle is one of their products that is outstanding. Even locals still prefer them over the next best rival Romana's Peanut Brittle. The same with the Ube and Strawberry Jams. They have well secured production areas and not just anyone is allowed in there.
Good Shepherd Convent has upgraded its facilities using Solar Panel lighting and Solar Thermal Water Heaters. The upgrade is to save on electric bills that they use in production. It is just amazing how they have developed into what they are right now. If you did not visit the place on your trip to Baguio City, make sure it will be on your agenda on your next trip!
