Being a mom, I started to be more particular with the foods we eat at home. I often prefer to buy organic foods for our monthly groceries. I got myself educated with the GMOs, the value of going organic and choosing healthier options for my family. So I was excited to be invited to Quan Fa Organic Farm. We often just see the organic produce in our grocery stores. It was good to check out how they are planned and harvested before they end up in the grocery. So even if I am living in the East and the farm is all the way to the farthest North at Murai Farmway, I didn’t mind visiting the organic farm.
Quan Fa Organic Farm is a family-owned business that started since 1999. The farm follows the ecological agrarian methods of farms and doesn’t use any harmful pesticides or fetilizers. They have one of the leading distributors of organically-grown vegetables in Singapore. They harvest and pack their produce every morning to ensure its freshness.
We were greeted by JJ, son of the founder of Quan Fa Farm. He gave us a tour of the farm.
He told us the farm is divided into 4 areas:
3. Open Area
4. Green House
We went to the Sprouts area first. We got acquainted with the sunflower sprouts which are great for salad or sandwich. We were even got to munch on it fresh. It was crunchy and nutty. I love the taste.
There was also the radish sprouts which surprisingly taste like wasabi when we got to try it. It wasn’t that spicy at all which was good. There was also a bed of wheatgrass which is great for juices.
Then we headed to the Open Area where there are a sea of greens in your visual horizon. There were several yellow flag or yellow paper attached to the wooden poles. Those are actually adhesive tapes to trap insect. I saw pek chye, radishes, spinach, spring onions and kale.
Then next stop was Compost Area. There were mountains of fertilizer in a wide corner of the farmer. You can see the smoke when they shove the fertilizer. JJ showed us that a mound of fertilizer from coffee grind. It was very interesting to learn about it.
We were then brought to the Green Houses. We got to meet the owners and founders of Quan Fa, JJ’s mother and father. They are very hands-on with their business. They are the ones who plants seedling and they also water their crops.
Here are the other plants in the farm:
After the tour, we enjoyed a yummy cold brown rice noodles garnished with sunflower sprouts and refreshed ourselves from the hot sun with a chilled lemongrass drink with organic brown rice.
