Bug’s Paradise Farm, an organic plantation located in Puchong, Malaysia, offers a different farm-to-table experience. Visitors can plant and pick their produce and then have it cooked in the farm’s on-site restaurant.  Upon entering the site, the plantation’s GM, Zhan Hui, will guide the visitors on how the vegetables are grown.  “And the farm tour will end with a special lunch box (as our cooking principal is plant-based, organic, and original taste),” Cheo Yee Jing, sales and marketing manager, told Vulcan Post. “We hope everyone can taste fresh vegetables as they are much more nutritious and taste better than others.”

Visitors who planted seeds can revisit the farm after a month or so to harvest their vegetables. Afterwards, they could head straight to the farm’s steamboat restaurant and taste their produce. According to the plantation, the concept of Bug’s Paradise is to offer organic produce in the shortest food miles – the distance food is transported from harvest to consumer.  “The shorter food miles makes the restaurant environmentally friendly too,” Cheo added. The farm-to-table restaurant says it plans to work with more companies to build more organic farms in the next three years. It also hopes to encourage the younger generation to have an interest in the organic farm industry. “We believe organic farming is the future of farming as lots of climate change issues are going on, and more people care about our living planet,” he concluded.
