EcoGreen came visiting
The owners of one of the most established organic shops and restaurants, EcoGreen Organic, came visiting with some of their customers. We don't farm in 'secret' and we don't have 'show' farms. And we don't believe organic farming should have anything to do with contract farming. WYSIWYG!
Here's a group photo.
The owner and head chef of EcoGreen, Sherene with her daughter Li Hua, up close with our free-range, grassfed chickens.
Brig Gen (R) Dato' Adnan, who owns a training camp near DQ Farm and Mr. Wong the owner and CEO of EcoGreen smelling the 8 year old litter which all visitors must submit themselves to.
The food forest with its melor (jasmine) bushes to feed hives of local honey bees. We have found that imported Italian bees all fall victim to the walit and layang-layang. But the local honey bees tend to fly lower and are more aggressive than the Italians and survive well in the farm.
Stuff that we use in the farm to repel insects, to reduce fungal attacks, to boost the immune system of the chickens and to generally make the farm a place that first time visitors feel 'energised'.
