About Us




The co-owners of Green Acres Orchard and Ecolodge, Kim and Eric Chong, are active members of the Slow Food International movement founded by Carlo Petrini in Italy in 1986. Slow Food is a global, grassroots organisation with supporters in 150 countries around the world who are linking the pleasure of good food with a commitment to their community and the environment. It strives to encourage farming, seed planting and livestock characteristic of the local ecosystem to provide sustainable foods.

In 2014, as a family, they were invited to participate in the Terra Madre Slow Food Festival in Torino, Italy in conjunction with the United Nation's Year of International Farming Families. Green Acres exhibited their farm's heirloom species of cloves and nutmegs in the festival.

Green Acres is built on dreams of giving the couple's son, Adric, a safer, healthier and more experiential learning environment in a working farm. 

A visit to Green Acres takes you a step back to memory lane reconnecting with our roots and practical lifestyle of our forefathers. Every farm visit made a family affair, Eric does the talking - sharing with guests the experience of sustainable farming first hand while walking the orchard. Kim does the preparation - preparing tasting sessions, farm brews and setting everything up to ensure a memorable experience. Adric, our son, is the entertainer - takes the children around with his bag of surprises (the magic seed, egg hunting in the chicken coop and fish feeding).

New sibling in the farm is Ciku, our beagle, born in June 2019. Ciku has brown, black and white hair, colours resembling the ciku fruit. She is our companion dog at the farm, after Sally, our 10-year-old beagle and the farm's much loved mascot, passed away peacefully on 15 March 2019.
