Where to Get Fresh & Affordable Organically Grown Local Produce

When it comes to avoiding pesticides and other contaminants in your food, buying organic is often the healthiest option – imported organic foodstuffs can also be the priciest. Local organic produce is affordable and readily available from local organic farms.


Quan Fa Organic Farm is one of them. It adopts ecological agrarian methods of farming, abstaining from the use of pesticides and harmful fertilizers, to produce only the freshest food crops that are both nutritious and healthy.

Since 1999, Quan Fa has been cultivating organically-grown vegetables, catering for the growing demand of organic produce. Over the years, it has grown from the humble beginnings of a small organic vegetable retailer to be one of the leading distributors of organic vegetables in Singapore, today.

The farm uses a compost system that originates from a Japanese technique, using a unique culturing medium to eliminate obnoxious odors of raw materials (mixture of decayed vegetations). This medium subsequently produces nutrient-rich organic debris; which deters the rate of damage caused by disease infection and insect infestation.

The compost is used throughout the farm to condition dead soil back to its arable state, which eventually enhances and stimulates plant growth. With the improvement in soil activity, vegetables need not require external substances such as synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Innovative farming techniques are used in tandem with the natural ecosystem for highly nutritional and healthy produce.

To ensure the freshness of the produce, harvesting and packaging are done in the morning. Besides a wide array of vegetables, sprouts, spices, herbs and fruits, Quan Fa Organic Farm also sells organic imports such as sauces, beverages and condiments.
