The name of FAM Organics is derived from the work-family because they believe that family is the first place where people should learn to live healthy and happy in their own homes. Founded in 2009, the farm grows super greens such as kale, herbs, microgreens, and sprouts. You can mix and match your own basket of fruit vegetables, but do check for availability first as everything is subject to the season.

A relatively new player to the organic vegetable farm scene is Uncle Sam’s Organic – An Urban Aquaponics Farm. Founded in 2015, this urban farm uses aquaponics, which combines aquaculture with hydroponics—the vegetables rely on the fish for nutrients, and the fish rely on the plants for cleaning the water. This closed loop system means that the amount of water used is only 10 percent that of traditional soil farming, which is a huge saving. It also means that the farm cannot add any chemicals that will harm the fishes, which in turn affects the vegetable harvest.
The farm has successfully harvested various vegetables including kale, Malabar spinach, eggplant, tomato, bok choy, four different types of amaranth leaves, and chilli pepper. The farm also offers a Harvest to Table service; four times a week, freshly harvested vegetables are delivered within four to six hours to your home. By ordering from a farm within Jakarta city, you cut down on the distance that it takes for food to travel from the farm to your home and this reduces carbon dioxide emissions that are harmful to the environment.
