We started our journey into agriculture about 10 years ago by being first- generation oil palm planters on land that had been in the family for many years. After several years of working the land, we began to notice that the typical business model of commercial agriculture was degrading our rich soils rapidly and stripping them of the rich biodiversity that was so evident when we first started working the land. Thus began a second journey to attempt to reverse the effects that the chemical fertilisers were having on our soil. It hasn’t been easy and the journey is far from over but at least we now have a better insight into how organic farming can restore our depleted soils and give us produce that is healthier and tastier than anything we could possibly develop chemically. It also has allowed us to develop a road map for how oil palm plantations can be economically diverse, environmentally sustainable and socially responsible.

None of this would have been possible without the close friendship and mentorship of a group of farmers who have been leading the charge in organic vegetable

farming in Johor Bahru. For the last 5 years, since 2015, the guys at FOLO Farms have been turning food waste into organic compost and using it to grow healthy organic vegetables under a Community Supported Agriculture Scheme.

Based on their years of research and experience, we have been able to jointly identify and develop the earth-friendly vegetable farm that is now ready to deliver delicious, natural and fresh vegetable boxes to you.

At our 10-acre farm, the ethos of grace and graciousness frames how we work from end-to-end; from using natural food waste as a primary source of nutrition for our vegetables to our community- engagement efforts, in our hiring approach and ensuring we always give away 10% of our crop to those in need. That philosophy, coupled with our firm belief in the goodness that our vegetables naturally deliver, led us to our name – Goodness Graciously !
