Thus not only the town market of Pila but also a bigger market in Sta Cruz became accessible shopping places for villagers. Similarly, the hauling of farm products, such as paddy (unhusked rough rice) and coconuts from the village to market places, which had previously been dependent on men’s shoulders or mud sleighs drawn by carabaos, began to be handled by jeepneys and pick-up trucks. The prices farmers received for their product were raised, and those they paid for input purchases were reduced by the extent of reduced transportation costs.

For example, villagers who live in the coconut grove owned by landlords living outside the village are allowed to gather and consume coconuts that have accidentally fallen down from the trees, but are prohibited from deliberately causing them to fall. A villager is prohibited from letting his carabao pass through others’ rice fields while crops are standing, but he is allowed to graze the carabao in anyone’s field after the harvest. A farmer is prevented from rejecting anyone who wishes to collect fallen rice panicles (pulot) in his field after harvest.
