The farm sup­plies Holly’s Milk to ho­tels, restau­rants, ex­clu­sive schools, and govern­ment in­sti­tu­tions.

From fresh milk, the dairy farm started play­ing with fla­vored milk, cheese, pastil­las, and all kinds of milk­based prod­ucts. Its in­ven­tory lists whole fresh milk, low-fat milk, and choco­late milk pack­aged in HDPE food grade bot­tles with a shelf life of seven to nine days; but­ter and kesong

puti pack­aged in high-den­sity polyethy­lene ( HDPE) food grade packs and tubs with a shelf life of nine to 12 days and 14 days, re­spec­tively; yo­ghurt and sour cream; other cheeses too, such as cot­tage cheese, cream cheese, and Gouda-style cheese.


In 2010, Mr. Magsaysay re­al­ized the po­ten­tial of cre­at­ing the prod­uct he truly loved. “Grow­ing up, there’s one thing that I al­ways had to try: ice cream,” he said. “My trav­els in­spired a lot of the fla­vors that we of­fer, such as Hokey Pokey which I tried in New Zealand; and the Span­ish Turon in Spain, which is an al­mond ice cream. Ev­ery fla­vor has a story. And as I travel through­out all the parts of the world, I get to eat more ice cream and try dif­fer­ent fla­vors. I think I’m able to suc­cess­fully put that in the menu of Car­men’s Best.”

The first three fla­vors Car­men’s Best of­fered were fairly com­mon: Choco­late, Straw­berry, and Vanilla. They later ex­per­i­mented with the more “com­pli­cated” ones: Salted Caramel, Brazil­ian Cof­fee, But­ter Pe­can, and Malted Milk, which are the brand’s best-sell­ers. Each one is made from the bot­tom up, start­ing with milk from the Hol­stein- Sahi­wal cat­tle of Real Fresh Dairy Farm. Some fla­vors have more eggs than oth­ers, some have more su­gar, more nuts.

And so, the Mada­gas­car Vanilla fla­vor has real vanilla bean pods; Malted Milk has Hor­licks and Mal­te­sers; Turk­ish Baklava has caramelized su­gar mixed with but­ter, al­monds, honey, a maple ice cream base, and salty crunchy al­monds; Brown But­ter Al­mond Brit­tle has home­made al­mond brit­tle; Nuts About You has al­monds, wal­nuts, and pecans; But­ter Pe­can has yummy but­ter and whole pecans; Pis­ta­chio is 100% pure pis­ta­chio with pis­ta­chio bits; and Se­cret Break­fast is spiked with whiskey. The Pi­noy fla­vor Ube has chunks of ube (pur­ple yam). And, well, run­away fa­vorite He’s Not Worth It (a balm for the bro­ken­hearted) has fudge, nuts, and cook­ies. A cup costs at least P110; a pint, P385.
