Open Farm Community (OFC) is Spa Esprit Group’s initiative in spearheading local farming, connecting the community to nature, and celebrating local spirit. Sitting on a 35,000sqft of green-land, OFC unites local farmers, creative chefs and an innovative spirit in a first-of-its-kind dining concept in Singapore.
In the open-concept kitchen and restaurant, we focus on locally sourced, seasonal and innovative dishes. We curate and host local farmers to showcase their produce to guests to deepen the pleasures of simple, freshly harvested ingredients that are both nourishing and a visual feast.
“Our vision is to bring to life, the impact of urban farming in Singapore, and in doing so, strengthen our understanding and respect for food and its origins. Our children, in particular, have been too segregated from nature. OFC is an ideological and physical reaction to this.”
“We want to provide a platform where families can come together and explore the many facets of food together through art, tours of the vegetable and fruit orchards, talks, gardening workshops, and of course, eating. Their layered experiences will also strengthen inter-generational relationships through quality time spent together.”
- Cynthia Chua, Founder of Spa Esprit
