Ryan Soler, a radio program producer and a businessman, is a relatively new gentleman farmer who is developing a 13-hectare farm in Tanay, Rizal that he bought three years ago.

He has found farming very enjoyable that gives him respite from the pollution and monstrous traffic in the city. He has targeted dragon fruit as his major crop with two hectares already planted to 4,000 hills. He has, however, other crops in lesser scale like his Red Lady papaya. During our visit to his farm on January 11, 2018, he really enjoyed harvesting and eating ripe Red Lady fruits.

Ryan has big plans for his farm. He has some plantings of pomelo, rambutan, sweet dwarf coconut, and has also bought new planting materials of Perante Orange, native dayap and American lemon. He dreams of having a complete collection of outstanding crop varieties, including vegetables not necessarily for commercial purposes but for his own enjoyment and for gifting to friends and relatives. He will also start raising free range chickens soon so he and his friends can enjoy native chicken tinola and adobo during their visits.

Among his trusted staff who help him are Leo Oril and Herbert Lelina, an architect who helps plan for structures on the farm. Construction of a pavilion has been started.
