I went on a tour of our Kranji Countryside. There is a whole village of activities where you can visit art galleries, enjoy pottery and woodworks, little restaurants and nurseries besides the Sungei Buloh Bird Sanctuary. There are several farms to visit, you don’t have to go all the way to Australia.
Bollywood Veggies is owned by Ivy Singh-Lim, past president of Netball Singapore. Together with her husband Lim Ho Seng, she started this 10-acre farm. Organic vegetables and fruit trees are grown without chemicals, fertilisers, pesticides, and no growth hormones. There are fishponds and a lovely spice garden.Bollywood Veggies is the largest producer of organic bananas and papayas in Singapore. They also specialise in fruit vegetables such as ladies fingers, long beans, cucumbers, bitter gourds. They also grow uncommon medicinal trees and herbs and probably the hottest chilli padi on the island. There is also a natural and beautiful lotus pond in the Sanctuary.
