What people are saying

"I joined the Rural Rising membership. What convinced me was Andie's tearful speech last night which showed me that she and Ace genuinely care for our farmers and the less enabled. But a lot more have to care a lot for this to work. So, I'm joining these care bears who care a lot!"

— Atty. Froilyn Doyaoen
"As I watch the news and see how hopeless the plight of the farmers are in our country, I wanted to help but i repeatedly asked myself how. My dream is to be able to bridge those farmers to a place where their produce would be worth their hard work. Through the advocacy and passion of Ace and Andie that dream became a reality. Thank you Rural Rising for making it possible for simple people like me and a thousand others to unite together to help our dear farmers."

— Frances Joan Alvarez Bocobo
"We've been blessed to get some lots from Rural Rising the last few days that my Dad has been personally picking up from RuRi House. …From the farms where it came from to our home the fruits and vegetables have traveled (in raw or cooked form) to various areas in Bulacan, Caloocan, QC, Mandaluyong, Makati and BGC…Thanks again Ace and Andi for this wonderful initiative. It has truly changed our lives to have access to the fresh produce of the farmers from all over."

— Atty Kimberly May Baltao-Chandra
Rural Rising’s strength lies in its pure and honest thirst to bring sustainability to our local, organic farms. At times they are like jewelers searching far and wide for one of a kind produce such as the Lisbon Lemons and Abui!

— Christine Robles
Once upon a time, We met advocates Andie and Ace Who showcased the Filipino farmers' hardworking ways. They pooled their personal friends and money To send us almost everything from carrots eggplants to honey. And so this hub for buyers and sellers was born In the midst of pandemic and storms... But Mother Nature will find a way Through Rural Rising Ph, the Filipino farmer will power the country and nourish the families every single day.

— Tinky Cabanatan Cruz
Andie and Ace's RuRi is the agricultural framework badly needed in the Philippines where food should not only be about production but more about people, and produce is not the end point but a process we all have to actively participate in.

— Sol Maris Trinidad

DECLARATION. We have become certain now of what we want to do with Rural Rising. Last night, travelling back to Manila, it has come together in our minds and our hearts. We had to stop and cry. All these months, the pieces to make a minimum viable product (MVP) have come in.

1. A very passionate, very involved group of 10,000
2. Hundreds of farmers who are looking to us for assistance, even hope
3. Our personal willingness to do this long-termWhat else do we need except to go ahead do it? To start imperfectly, to improve and improvise in the day-to-day execution, to repeat, and to scale.

Our VISION is for poor farmers and farm labourers to work under Rural Rising to receive a monthly wage and government-mandated benefits. They shall work what land that they have to grow crops that we need or want. We’ll start with Adlai, and strawberry and squash. We offer them the opportunity to have a happier and easier life.

Our MISSION is to invite our members to join different Growth Buys, essentially Group Buys with a longer waiting time. That time is determined by how long the produce would go from seed to harvest. We offer them the opportunity to help in order to be happier.

Execution:

1. Launch the RURAL RISING MEMBERSHIP CARD on January 1, 2021 or when we reach 10,000 members, whichever comes first.
2. We shall be able to accept only 10% of the total membership or 1,000 members to become our partners.
3. It’s P3,600 per year to become a Founding (Gold) Member.
4. ID numbers start at 10,001 onwards.
5. We are working to add credit-card like benefits to the ID card.

Benefits:

1. Founding members can join the Growth Buys.
2. Founding members get significant discounts and more.
3. We shall add more benefits and make available more opportunities as we do this.

This is what Andie and I want to do with the rest of our lives and we feel it with all our hearts that is the worthiest earthly endeavour. Will you join us? Do you want to be a part of this?
