Established in 2001, N & N Agriculture also known as Egg Story has embarked on new frontiers in food safety management. As one of Singapore’s high tech local farms and the only local poultry farm to utilize a multi-patented pasteurization technology, N & N agriculture strives to provide high quality pasteurized shell eggs at affordable prices.
The farm is not open to the public and special access to the farm requires AVA’s approval. With half a million chickens producing 400,000 eggs daily, it is indeed a rare and exclusive chance to get a glimpse of how chicken eggs are produced in Singapore! What’s more, participants may purchase farm fresh produce at special prices during the farm visit!
