|Bollywood Veggies is located in an oasis in the middle of the Sungei Tengah and Sungei Buloh river valleys. This farm is run by Mrs Ivy Singh-Lim and her husband, Mr Lim Ho Seng, former CEO of NTUC FairPrice.
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.
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.
Bollywood Veggies plot of land, 10-acre farm, was purchased in 2001 as part of their retirement plan. Poison Ivy Bistro actually began sometime in early 2005.
Ivy Singh-Lim is not your ordinary Singapore idol, but she is certainly one of the most vocal and colourful personalities in the Republic. As immediate past president of Netball Singapore, together with her husband Lim Ho Seng, she has become a farmer-entrepreneur.
