Orchidville, Singapore Overview

Orchidville is one of the public farms at Kranji Farms in the northern part of the city. The largest orchid farm in Singapore, it showcases many varieties of the orchid on 43 hectares of land occupying the Mandai Agrotechnology Park.

Initially, just a cultivator and supplier of orchids around different parts of Singapore, Orchidville has grown to harvest more than 20 vegetables in their 15 greenhouses. It includes salad greens such as iceberg lettuce and kale, and local vegetables such as Chinese cabbage, spring onions, etc. All their vegetables are cultivated in a pesticide and fertiliser free environment, where the produce is fresh and free of chemical preservatives. Orchidville also specialises in a unique farm-to-table experience in their in-house restaurant Forrest, where the food served is all locally produced at the farm. Orchidville is a must-visit if you're planning to make a trip to Kranji Farms.
