{Media Invite: Quan Fa Organic Farm – A Farm Tour}

In a land scarce modern city like Singapore, it is surprising to find organic farms like Quan Fa. Our Parenting World team visited Quan Fa to find out more about its organic farming and methods. 

Quan Fa produces vegetables and fruits, it refrained from using pesticides and harmful fertilizers on its crops to ensure that they are safe, healthy and nutritious for consumption. Quan Fa Organic Farm is certified by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture, Australia (NASAA).

Our group was introduced to Sunflower seed sprouts which was grown indoors in basket trays. We were given an opportunity to try out the Sunflower seed sprouts, they are actually tender and delectable!

Fabian explained to us that in order to prevent insects from eating the vegetables, they will place insect traps or sticky pads which will attract the insects to fly towards them. The pads’ surfaces are very sticky and insects will get struck on them. Fabian told us that plants do have their own defense mechanisms as they will produce a waxy layer on the leaves’ surface which will help to prevent insects too.

Quan Fa uses its own compost and fertilizers made from plant waste. They have mountains of plant fertilizers which are goldmine to the farmers. Fabian let us feel and touch the compost and he told us that the temperature of the compost can reach up to 80 degree celsius.
