Vegetables and Fruits – Good
Organic Vegetables and Fruits – even Better
Organic Vegetables and Fruits freshly grown in Singapore – the BEST!!!
I am a sucker for all things Organic. If you browse my blog-site a bit, you would find loads of posts about organic food, organic cosmetics and so on. And Why Not? Organic Farming is pro-nature and includes practices that strive to foster recycling and reusing of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. I also dig in taste of organic products. They just taste yummier than others.
One thing though – I notice that many of the organic products, vegetables, fruits are imported from other countries. Singapore is not exactly a country where farming is a main-stream occupation.
Surprise Surprise!! Right here in Singapore, there is this beautiful organic farm called Quan Fa Organic Farm. I didn’t know about it until I got invite to tour this farm. September holidays was the perfect season and reason to visit the farm. 🙂 🙂 Kids, Hubby and me went and enjoyed this refreshing site closer to the nature and learnt a thing or two about organic farming.
So around 5 PM, when it was not too hot, we reached for the farm tour. Kids and Hubby always love these kind of locations and were all excited. Kids are by default outdoor little people and will choose open air, play, nature over gadgets. Agree or not?
JJ is the 2nd gen farmer and he knows everything in and out as far his farm is concerned. Farmers should be always respected as these people nurture the soil like their babies and produce such amazing fruits and vegetables for us. It is NOT at all easy to stand in the farm rain or shine, toil hard and make the green dream come true. Kudos to JJ’s Dad who started this humble farm and making it one of the leading distributors in Singapore.
After initial intro, the tour began…
What’s in the Farm?
100 shades of green I would say! Farm is an experience and you should just soak in the fresh air, the fragrance of soil and produce.
This farm is quite large and they produce leafy vegetables, hardy vegetables, herbs and spices, sprouts, fruits and more. Certain products they import too.
Where should I begin? Okay, have a look at this video of overall farm…Green n Brown, Brown n Green…
This is JJ’s Dad. How kind this man looks!
Chinese Spinach I have used but could see it up, close and personal here…
What’s life without some spice…The hotness of this chili can be categorized as Flaming HOT.
As they say, nothing in the nature is useless! This is weed but JJ told that it can be used in soups and has some medicinal properties.
Quan Fa Organic Farm means NO synthetic pesticides, NO chemical fertilizers. So to protect the plants from insects, the farmers use this sticky paper like thingy.
They also have compost area which uses proven Japanese technique.
Quan Fa has its own vehicles. My boy said it’s “loader”…
Kids were running around, trying to recognize different types of veggies and hubby was in zen mood filling his eyes with the raw greenery around…
Freshly picked Spring Onions…How fresh they look! Just by looking at them, you know that they must be tasting heavenly.
Brinjal, Raddish, Mint, Curry Leaves, Lemongrass, Peanuts…
Refreshments that they served us were also organic but obviously. The lemongrass drink tasted much much better than some lemon grass drinks I have tasted. Cold Pasta with crunchy Sunflower sprouts was absolute delish. Pasta dressing was equally unique – hibiscus with that hottest chili…
Daughter and me with JJ, the second generation friendly farmer. Somehow, after staying in the farm for some time, we were also looking and feeling like farmers – nearer to the plants and soil. Nature has its impact on all of us always! I would like to suggest Quan Fa Organic Farm to start some type of short course in farming for kids.
