WOK’S PICK [GOOD SHEPHERD PASALUBONG]

Pasalubong treats that keep on giving

One of the most clicked tags in my blog is Baguio’s Good Shepherd pasalubong. Some would even ask for the prices of the products. Unfortunately, I didn’t have it before. So during my previous visit to Baguio, I made sure to get the prices of the famous Good Shepherd treats and publish it here.

One of Mountain Maid's famous products - Ube Jam

The Religious of the Good Shepherd was established in the year 1912 in the Philippines. It was founded by St. Mary Euphrasia whose main mission was directed to the most neglected and marginalized. To concretize the mission, the Mountain Maid training center was established. Supervised by the RGS nuns, the training facility provides livelihood and education to chosen youth in the Mountain province area. They are also responsible for the production of Mountain Maid products. The sister’s strawberry Jam remains to be a favorite since 1953 when people from the convent’s neighborhood exclaimed that “the sisters made the best jam in town!”.

If you're going to Baguio City, make sure to drop by the Good Shepherd convent for pasalubong shopping. Their treats are always fresh, convent-made and it helps the community.

Anyway, here’s the list of Mountain Maid products and their respective prices so you can prepare your pasalubong shopping on your next trip to Baguio. By the way, the Panagbenga Festival in Baguio City will be happening this February 2012. To know more about the festival and the schedule of activities, please click this link.

Hi, I’m planning to visit baguio this feb 2013, during the penagbenga festival, I’m just not so sure if it would be the best time to visit the place.. I’m wondering that we might not enjoy and explore the place because of large number of tourists during the penagbenga festival. Any advice would be greatly appreciate. Thanks 🙂

the streets are full and little transportation is available during panagbenga which is stressful especially for us who does not have private transport. i was there just his year’s panagbenga. try visiting some other time. i will be there this december. hopefully, this time will be a relaxing one.

Very well known yan sa Baguio and they say karamihan ng labor force ay mga madre. Didn’t get there myself exactly but I used to buy their products. ^_^

Comment by Glen Villar

Konti nalang ata Sir yung mga madre na gumagawa, mostly mga scholars or beneficiaries ng Mountain Maid Training Center yung labor force. But nevertheless, the best pa din products nila! 🙂
