Bollywood Farms: Organic Vegetables & Fruits
Bollywood Farms (formally Bollywood Veggies) is the place to be if you want to get your hands on fresh and organic vegetables, herbs, and fruits, including uncommon varieties like wintermelon, dill, breadfruit and butterfruit. Grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and growth hormones, this vegetable and fruit farm is probably most well known for the 20+ varieties of bananas they grow each year – and all are sweet, succulent and hand-selected by the co-founder too. Bollywood Farms also makes a good family field trip with independent and guided tours of the farm, hands-on horticultural programmes, and culinary classes all available for families to enjoy. Kids can have a go planting rice (and getting all muddy in the process) and take part in other hands-on activities to understand urban farming better. An on-site bistro, Poison Ivy, and a culinary school set against the quaint backdrop of the quiet Kranji countryside make this a truly memorable vegetable farm visit.
