One of the most interesting things about Kin Yan Farm is that it’s open to the public. And yes, you can purchase a variety of mushrooms and other veggies right from the source at their in-house produce shop. In fact, the farm cultivates 5 different types of mushrooms: abalone, golden oyster, pink oyster, golden spring, and black fungus. 

Should you not be able to make it down yourself, the products are also available via Kin Yan Farm’s Redmart store. So stock up on favourites such as the Golden Enoki ($1.52), Empress Shiitake ($3.30), and Pea Sprouts ($2.50)

If mushrooms aren’t your thing, don’t worry, Kin Yan Farm also has a greenhouse with leafy vegetables – think watercress, choy sum, and various types of potato leaves. This is also where you’ll find wheatgrass. 

Fun fact: consuming 50ml of pure wheatgrass juice is equivalent to eating 3kg of vegetables, so maybe it’s time to stock up.
