Organic is the Way to Go


Mr Tan

The Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) organised a trip to an organic farm at Chenderiang, on the way to Lata Kinjang, called Hebron. The farm has been operating for 28 years and consists of two parcels of land; 20 acres at the foot of the hill and 50 acres at the peak. A group of about 40 was led by Mr Tan (pic) on a tour of the farm where plump chickens (broilers and layers) are reared free-range – all fed with the farm’s own mix of organic feed. There were also scattered trees of: avocado, starfruit, murungai (drumstick tree), papaya, and the delectable durian, which just happened to be in season. It was pointed out that, not only is the murungai’s green pods delicious for cooking, but the young leaves are also highly nutritious. It was interesting, and unusual, to find dried noodles made with these leaves, sold at the farm’s store. The group also saw how soya sauce is made the old-fashioned way, by the sun, which takes about 5 to 6 months; a fish pond of tilapia; a compost shed; and companion planting of vegetables, legumes and flowers, to replenish the soil and keep pests at bay. The trip ended with an organic lunch of noodles and garden fresh vegetables.

Organic products are sold at Lifecare Medical Supplies, 521 Jalan Pasir Putih, Ipoh, and at the pasar malam on Mondays (Gunung Rapat) and Fridays (First Garden).

Hebron is run by the New Testament Church. To arrange for a visit, contact: Mr Tan – 012-5026924 or Shuzhen – 012-5153160.

  1. I found this posting in my search for an organic farm near Ipoh. I was happy to have found one, but disturbed to read about this apparent rental dispute.

    I hope Hebron has settled the matter with the landlord.

  2. Please remind Yee Eoi Leng to make the following rent payment to her Landlord:

    Rent Now Due – Rm 3,200.00 (before interest & Collection Charges)

    Public Bank Berhad

    Account No. 4905330607

    Account name: Yau Kim Yoong

  3. If people keep behaving unreasonably he/she will never see the light at the end of the tunnel!

  4. People also claim to be religious and honest. But action speaks louder than words!

    Thats why I find that some Christians are nothing but hypocrites!

  5. Maybe eating organic food is bad for the brain. Organic food may make people including tenants to behave unreasonable. E.G. The person will not pay the rent due for no valid reason.
    So much so it is just not human.
    I therefore of the opinion that Organic Food is not the proper food. Human decency is still the best vitamin you can have!

  6. Hi there,

    Pls pay up your house rent. It is not proper and legal to ignore your legal obligation.

    If this matter is not dealt with, Landlord will take you to the Court!

    Have a good day and may God bless you.

  7. I love to visit organic farms. Can anyone let me know if there is anybody
    organising such day trips? I am from Ipoh and would like to join such trips if available.
