Kranji – Bollywood Veggies

Your sanctuary away from the bustle of the “Little Red Dot” set in the rustic environment of the Kranji Countryside. The farm is run as sustainably as possible with no pesticides or fertilizers used on site, making it a planet-friendly operation. Take a walk around the farm, visit the museum, or eat at the Poison Ivy Bistro on site – whatever the case, a great place to stop for lunch if you’re ever farm-hopping in the area.

Bollywood Veggies probably grows the most variety of fruits, vegetables, flowers etc. and 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. Photos below are consolidated over different visits over the years.

We’ve visited Bollywood Veggies many times over the years and it was great to see how mature the farm has become. The bistro was busy, and the fruit trees have grown really nicely. We also took a walk around the farm and spotted many interesting trees like the spiky-trunked cotton tree and coffee plant. I also couldn’t help but notice the giant papayas – they are almost the size of my head!!

You can buy organically grown vegetables, pots of herbs and medicinal plants, have a lovely meal at the Bistro, or just stroll about on the farm. A great introduction for kids to farms. You don’t have to leave Singapore to visit the country and farms. The bistro serves up yummy local food. It’s one of our favourite places to stop for lunch when we’re visiting the Kranji Countryside.
