Cordillera - The generosity and kindness of the farmers in Cordillera had been demonstrated during this time of crisis. 
Social media has been flooded with remarkable stories and acts of kindness from farmers and other kindhearted individuals who generously offered their resources to people in need. 

On Saturday (April 25, 2020), a farmer who doesn't want to be identified has offered truckloads of fresh carrots to everyone for free, according to the post from Sheila Banagui. 

Banagui said, the generous farmer whom he called 'COVID carrot man' has unloaded truck loads of high quality carrots in front of Epiphany Church in Km 6, La Trinidad and later to the Cathedral of the Resurrection parking lot.

"This morning other farmers followed him. They too are struggling to survive this pandemic but they happily came with truck loads of carrots and other vegetables... For FREE," Banagui said.

Some farmers in the Cordillera region have been struggling to sell their produce specially during this enhanced community quarantine.

Local government units and organizations had came to the rescue by buying tons and tons of produce from the farmers.
Last week, The Philippine Air Force purchased around 13 tons of vegetables from Benguet farmers to be donated to folks in Manila. 

Also the government of Bocaue, Bulacan has bought 13,200 kilos of assorted vegetables from farmers of Bauko in Mountain Province.
