The nuns of the Good Shepherd Convent established the Mountain Maid Training Center, primarily to make delicious Baguio delicacies (strawberry jam, Ube jam, various cookies and candies) and handicrafts. When you buy any of their wonderful products you will help send a youth to college. Its nice feeling to help the poor go to school, while satisfying your personal need... More

Most of the products are undeniably good but very pricey. We did a blind taste test of products bought from the market and counterparts from the nuns. The verdict: very negligible difference in taste but colossal difference in price. It is like shopping for the same produce in the market and in an air con grocery store. We totally found... More

What I like in good shepherd are the blooming flowers in the surrounding. The products of Good Shepherd are superb but expensive. I do not like though the long line of buyers.

They have the best ube and strawberry jams! Plus, when you buy, all the proceeds go to charity. So at the same time, you're sending someone to school while you delight on their products. Best time to go there is morning. No queue and less hassle.

This is the place you're not supposed to miss.....You can't enjoy your Baguio trip if you don't visit and purchase the products they offer there. As always, I loved the ube jam and the lengua de gato....the best!!!! I had to buy lots to be given away to families and friends and something I will bring back home in Hawaii.

If you want the best tasting pasalubong from Baguio, then go to Good Shepherd. I highly recommend the Ube Jam. It's so good that I can eat the content of the biggest bottle in one sitting. The Cashew Brittle is also a must try. Pasalubong is cheaper here if you are buying a lot. Your fare travelling to and from... More

I usually don't care what brand of pasalubong I buy. But one of my relatives really requested that I get her pasalubong from Good Shepherd. At first I thought she was just being maarte so I tried to buy one of peanut brittle from mother shepherd (another brand) and compared it from the one from Good Shepherd. And the difference... More
