Sprawling over 35,000 square feet on the edge of Minden Road, this revolutionary experiential space is a green mix of urban farmland right in the heart of Singapore, and a horticultural hub. OFC is established with the goal to help Singaporeans make a deeper and more meaningful connection with food and farming.
OFC is a timely response to increasing disconnect between most urban communities with nature generally, and specifically, with the way we eat – what we eat, and how we eat. Above all, it is a celebration of local farmers, creative chefs, and delicious seasonal fare.
These progressive initiatives will be unveiled in stages, but the DNA is clear. This unique venture is designed to provide families, foodies and gourmets alike with a transformational opportunity to learn about food and the role it should play in a modern eco-system that is saturated with processed ingredients, imported produce, and unsustainable farming practices.
At the core of OFC is an interactive, content-rich programme that explores the communal pleasures of fresh produce, renewable agricultural practices, and an encouragement to actively reflect on food in all its dimensions. Its sprawling outdoor and covered spaces incorporate a coffee bar, fresh juice and cocktail bar, as well as educational breakout spaces alongside group activities such as lawn bowling and table tennis.
