Grapes, seaweed and ice plants: The unexpected crops farms in Singapore are growing

Current crops include vegetables such as spinach, kale and lettuce, as well as some herbs, sold online and in supermarkets including FairPrice Finest and Meidi-Ya.

Artisan Green is conducting research into different crops as it builds a new farm 18 times bigger, Mr Poh said.

“We are scaling up our farm from a 300 square meter farm to a 5,400 square meter farm, and we need to explore more crops to grow as our production volume will be around 25,000 kg per month,” he told CNA.

The farm is also looking into specialty crops as it aims to supply the food service industry and hotels, restaurants and cafes.

“We realized that ice plants are something interesting for chefs to use, that’s why we started growing them. We have a pipeline of many other different crops that we will grow for the farm of the future.’


The grapes were smaller than what we were used to, but tasty, juicy and a little tart.

Each fruit was less than 1 cm in diameter, and on the vine, each bunch of grapes was barely the size of my palm.
